Kyle Starkey and Ryan McBride beat to death thirty six year old, Ohio woman, Mandy Gottschalk, and hid her battered body in her closet for days while two men went off and partied.
Gottschalk was reported missing by her family on August 17, days later she was found buried in a shallow grave.
Starkey has been charged with two counts of murder, felonious assault, tampering with evidence, gross abuse of a corpse and domestic violence. McBride faces charges of tampering with evidence and gross abuse of a corpse.
Ohio prosecuting Attorney Nicholas A. Larocci in a statement he released said,”Starkey’s actions, if proven in a court of law, represent one of the most brutal beatings and murders that has taken place since my tenure as county prosecutor”.
Gottschalk is survived by her four minor children. Two of the children will live with her mother and two others with another set of grandparents.
