2 Ohio women indicted in gruesome death

Muskingum County Prosecutor Mike Haddox says that if convicted, Katrina Marie Culberson and Monica Jean Washington of Canton would be eligible for the death penalty.

Haddox tells The Associated Press today that in addition to the murder charge, the women were also were indicted on felony charges of kidnapping and aggravated arson.

The grand jury will consider whether to indict a third suspect next week.
