Stewart Jeffrey

STEWART

Clark Robert

CLARK

NEW PHILADELPHIA, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say one of the men charged with murder in the abduction and slayings of an elderly couple in northeast Ohio has implicated a second suspect who remains at-large.

The Tuscarawas County sheriff's department issued a statement on its Facebook page Saturday night announcing the arrest of 21-year-old Jeffery Stewart in the slayings of 88-year-old Doyle Chumney and his 79-year-old wife, Lillian. The Strasburg couple was reported missing Jan. 21 after they failed to meet their son. Their badly burned remains were found in their car on a rural road the next day.

Authorities are looking for 29-year-old Robert Clark. Police say Clark is likely armed and should be considered dangerous. He is described as 6 foot 3 and 350 pounds. Clark was last seen driving a green Dodge mini-van.

1 arrested, 1 sought in abduction, slaying of elderly couple

COSHOCTON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say one man has been arrested and another is being sought in the abduction and slaying of an elderly couple whose bodies were found in their burned-out car.

 

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine says a task force arrested 21-year-old Jeffery Stewart of New Philadelphia on Saturday and charged him with murder.

Stewart was identified with help from the public after the task force released a surveillance photo of him. He's being held in the Tuscarawas County jail.

Authorities say Stewart made statements that led to an arrest warrant being issued for 29-year-old Robert Clark of Dennison. Police say he should be considered armed and dangerous.

Police believe Stewart and Clark are responsible for the deaths of 88-year-old Doyle Chumney of Strasburg and his 79-year-old wife, Lillian. They were reported missing on Jan. 21. Their bodies were found the next day in the burned car in Bakersville.
