Woman accused of murdering husband after remains found months later in Summit County home

COVENTRY TOWNSHIP, OH (WOIO) - A woman was arrested for murder over the weekend after her husband's remains were found in their Coventry Township home.

According to the Summit County Sheriff's Office, Marcia Eubank, 49, has been arrested and accused of killing 54-year-old Howard Eubank.

Her bond was set at $1 million.

Summit County deputies discovered Howard's remains at the couple's home in the 3300 block of Linda Street on Saturday afternoon.

"Somewhat of a disturbing scene. Pretty gruesome," said Summit County Sheriff Steve Berry.

Deputies believe Eubank murdered her husband earlier this year during a domestic-related incident. Authorities said Howard died in June, likely from a gunshot to the head, during a video arraignment Monday.

"We determined that different tools in the home, both mechanical or I should say power or electric types as well as some hand tools were used and we believe we have them," said Berry.

Deputies found the dismembered body of Howard, exactly what the Eubank's son found when he entered through an unlocked window after locking himself out of the home. "Went in and discovered two containers that had what appeared to be maggots. At that point in time he smelled some different smells," said Berry.

"It's hard to paint the picture because nobody understands it. I'm sorry, I can't talk right now," said a neighbor who couldn't find the words to describe the alleged murder and cover-up.

She is being held in Summit County Jail.

Authorities expect more charges to be filed given the way Eubanks allegedly treated the body.
