AKRON, Ohio — A Northeast Ohio woman who murdered and dismembered her husband and then lived with his remains for months will possibly spend the rest of her life behind bars.

Marcia Eubank, of Coventry Township, was sentenced Friday in Summit County Common Pleas Court to 20 years to life in prison.

Eubank pleaded guilty this past December to murder, tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse.

According to authorities, after Eubank shot her husband in the head in June 2017, she used an electric saw to dismember him and then placed his remains in plastic containers. The remains would sit there rotting until her son found them six months later.

The son, who lived off and on with his parents, discovered the remains when he climbed through a window after having been locked out of the house. When the son climbed through the window, he noticed a repugnant odor and saw maggots crawling around, authorities said.

The son texted his mother about what he found and asked her what was inside the containers. Eubank told him that they held the remains of his father, authorities said.

Eubank will be eligible for parole after 20 years in prison.
