COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – A man accused of killing one woman and injuring another in a Franklinton double shooting faced a judge Friday.
Erich Barbee, 30, was arrested Wednesday and received a $5 million bond for a double shooting that happened at 3 a.m. on March 16. That morning, officers responded to reports of shots fired in the 100 block of Rodgers Avenue and found 44-year-old Marissa Saultz dead inside the residence.
The second victim, a 29-year-old woman, was able to call for help from the roof after crawling out of a second-story window. She was taken to Grant Medical Center, where she was listed in critical condition and later upgraded to stable.
Police issued a warrant for Barbee, who was identified by witnesses at the scene, later that Thursday evening. He was scheduled to appear in a Franklin County Municipal Court on Thursday for an arraignment hearing, but it was postponed until Friday.
Barbee is next scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on March 31 at 9 a.m.
