According to Parma Police Lt. Daniel Ciryak, officers were called to the home on Nov. 16 for a domestic violence incident involving Addicott, 40, and a woman.

Addicott was arrested and the woman was transported to UH Parma Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Later that day, a family member went to the home to remove some guns for safekeeping and found the body, said Lt. Ciryak.

The family member immediately called police and officers returned to the home, along with the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner.

Lt. Ciryak said Krebs was reported missing to Parma police on Aug. 25.

Court documents show Krebs was murdered on Aug. 1.

The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner said Krebs died of multiple gunshot wounds.

Addicott is being held on a $1 million bond at the Cuyahoga County Justice Center.
