A man accused in the deaths of three women whose bodies were found wrapped in trash bags was indicted Monday on 14 counts including multiple charges of aggravated murder and kidnapping.

Michael Madison is being charged in connection with the deaths of Shirellda H. Terry, Angela H. Deskins and Shetisha D. Sheeley.

East Cleveland police responded to a call about a foul odor July 19 and discovered a body in a garage in a dilapidated neighborhood. Within hours, they identified Madison as a suspect and went to his mother’s house, where he was arrested after a brief standoff.

Police found the additional bodies the following day after their questioning of Madison led them to renew their search. All three bodies were found in the fetal position, wrapped in several layers of trash bags.
