Warrant: Chef at Ohio facility admitted killing housekeepers


CHAGRIN FALLS, Ohio (AP) — An arrest warrant says a chef suspected of fatally shooting two housekeepers at an Ohio assisted living facility admitted that he killed them.

Chagrin Falls police obtained a murder warrant Friday for 56-year-old Frank Staton, of Chardon. He’s accused of killing Chardon resident Terri Treadway and Burton resident Catherine Sutter on Thursday at Hamlet Village before turning a gun on himself.

Police say Staton is hospitalized in critical condition.

Police say Staton lived with one of the women. Treadway’s ex-husband, Ken, told cleveland.com she had told him she was afraid her boyfriend would harm her.

Chagrin Falls Mayor Bill Tomko says the other woman was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

An affidavit says Staton told police he had a concealed carry permit. A loaded handgun was recovered.
