Local News

DELAWARE, Ohio (WCMH) — Matheau Moore, the husband of Emily Noble, whose body was found in a wooded area in Westerville in 2020, appeared in court Friday afternoon.

Moore was arrested and charged with Noble’s death on Thursday.

A Delaware County judge set Moore’s bond at $2.5 million.

Noble’s body was found on September 16, 2020, in a wooded area near County Line and State roads in Westerville. She had been reported missing in late May 2020, after celebrating her 52nd birthday.

Shortly after Noble’s body was found, a lawsuit was filed seeking to remove Moore from controlling Noble’s finances.

Authorities say Noble’s body was staged to appear as a suicide, but evidence clearly pointed to homicide. Noble suffered multiple facial and neck fractures, according to police.

Moore faces two counts of murder and one count of felonious assault.
