Ohio man charged with murder in domestic case

Local News

A Kingsville, Ohio man is facing charges in the death of a woman.  Upon arrival, police found 54-year-old Sheila Pyles alive but unresponsive from what appeared to be an overdose.

She was life-flighted to the hospital but later died.  According to police, her physical condition and evidence in the house led them to believe this was an act of domestic violence; not an overdose.  63-year-old Leonard M. Bankston Sr. is charged with two counts of murder and one count of felonious assault.

No bond has been set.
