The charges stem from the discovery of three women found brutally murdered and stashed in trash bags near Madison’s East Cleveland apartment earlier this month.

After a two-hour standoff, Madison was arrested July 19th at his mother’s home. He was then ordered held on a $6-million bond, pending the Grand Jury’s action. 

In another case, Madison was also charged with failure to inform the county sheriff’s office about a change in address, a requirement of all convicted sex offenders. 

Madison is expected to be arraigned in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court later this week.

The victims have been identified as 18-year-old Shirellda Terry, 38-year-old Angela Deskins, and 28-year-old Shetisha Sheeley.  Deskins was laid to rest this weekend, while a funeral has been planned for Terry this Friday.  As of this time, no funeral plans have been announced for Sheeley.
