Coroner: Elderly Ohio slaying victim was stabbed

MOUNT VERNON, Ohio (AP) — A central Ohio coroner says an elderly woman killed during a burglary at her apartment this week was stabbed to death.

The coroner in Knox County, northeast of Columbus, said late Wednesday that 80-year-old Marilyn Eversole was fatally stabbed during a burglary of her apartment in a senior-living complex in Mount Vernon.

A 67-year-old home health aide who walked in on the burglary early Tuesday also was injured. She was treated at a hospital and released.

Police arrested 34-year-old Tyrone Caldwell later on Tuesday and charged him with aggravated murder and aggravated burglary.

He is being held with a $1 million bond. A grand jury is expected to consider other charges. He didn't comment during an initial court appearance.
