DAYTON — A Dayton woman was arrested on charges in connection to the shooting death of a man Sunday, according to Dayton police.

PREVIOUS REPORT: Man found shot inside a car in Dayton dies from his injuries

Sheila Eddington, 43, was arrested on North Garland Avenue in Dayton after Shawn Reuber, 42, of Dayton was found shot in a car Jan. 13.

LOCAL WEATHER: Wintry weather, including snow, possible for morning commute Thursday

Reuber later died from his injuries, a gunshot wound to his abdomen, and his death was ruled a homicide by the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office.

Eddington is facing charges of carrying a concealed weapon and having weapons under disability. She entered a not guilty plea during an initial court appearance Wednesday in Dayton Municipal Court, where her bond was set at $100,000.

Eddington’s lawyer requested an own recognizance bond, because she is the mother of a 6- and 10-year-old but it was denied.

Eddington is not facing charges for Reuber’s death.

“We can confirm that Ms. Eddington is being held in relation to this investigation,” Dayton police Lt. Jason Hall said in a statement. “The investigation is ongoing and we are working with the prosecutor’s office to determine appropriate charges in this matter.”
