CLEVELAND (AP) — A chef suspected of fatally shooting two housekeepers at an assisted living facility in suburban Cleveland has been indicted on charges including aggravated murder and felonious assault.
Investigators say 56-year-old Frank Staton admitted shooting the women at Hamlet Village in Chagrin Falls before turning a gun on himself. He was hospitalized in critical condition after the March 24 shooting.
Cuyahoga County online court records listed no attorney for him. He’s scheduled for arraignment April 15.
Police say Staton lived with one of the women. Her ex-husband told cleveland.com that she had told him she was afraid her boyfriend would harm her.
Chagrin Falls Mayor Bill Tomko has suggested the other woman who died was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
No residents at the retirement complex were hurt.
