“This was a very gruesome scene,” Barry told News 4. “Very disturbing.”

The authorities were eventually able to find Eubank on the parking lot of a mall. When questioned by detectives, Eubank admitted to shooting her husband twice, Barry said.

Marcia Eubank lived with her husband the dismembered body parts in their house for months, police said.


Berry said that he had “no idea” what led to the murder on June 13, and that Marcia was not cooperating with the police.

The researchers also recovered the suspected murder weapon, in addition to the items that can be used in the dismemberment — such as an electric saw. Eubank had her first appearance on Monday, where a judge her bond at $1 million, according to FOX8.


Relatives and neighbors thought that Howard Eubank was in Texas, because he would sometimes be gone for a long period of time because of his work as a truck driver, the Akron Beacon Journal reported.

Bill Channel, who lives across the street from the couple, told the newspaper Marcia was very quiet and not so social.

“You would never, never, never figure something like that would be going on here,” he said.
