He found the house filled with a foul odor and maggots, which he sourced back to his father's remains, according to News 5 Cleveland.

Marcia Eubank was taken into custody in the parking lot of the Walmart on Arlington Rd. on Saturday evening.

Barry described Marcia's attitude as she was being arrested as nearly relieved, according to WJW.

The police arrested Marcia at a local store on 10 December following which she confessed to killing her husband. Summit County Sheriff Steve Barry said several items were collected as evidence, including hand and power tools believed to be used to dismember her husband's body. Her hearing is set for 1 p.m.

The body parts were found in three different containers in the house, including one in a locked office.

Though an autopsy is scheduled for this week, WKYC reported that the Summit County Medical Examiner tentatively identified the remains as Howard.

Information in the investigation is being gathered by the Summit County Sheriff's office and Medical Examiner and will be released when more details are known.

"She explained to detectives her reasons", said the sheriff. The Eubank's son, who lived in the home on and off, also received a text from his dad's phone saying that he was in Texas. About a week before, co-workers were told Howard was admitted to the hospital in relation to a possible respiratory issue. Authorities believe the messages were sent by Marcia.

Barry said he "really [couldn't] go into" why Marcia had kept the body parts in her home for months, according to CBS News. Barry did note that Marcia and Howard Eubank had some "strife" in the marriage over the years.

During a hearing in Barberton Municipal Court on Monday, her bond was set at $1 million.
