Columbus Woman Charged In Fatal Double-Shooting

A Columbus woman has been charged with murder after a double shooting on the city's south side. Police say Mary Page was arrested yesterday at her apartment on Manning Avenue, just around the corner from where 39-year-old Marcus Leonard was fatally wounded on Tuesday. The woman with whom Leonard was staying, 59-year-old Theresa Cooper, was taken to Grant Medical Center in serious condition. Page has been charged with one count of murder, but police say they're searching for others who were involved in the shootings. Page is being held at Franklin County jail and was set to appear in municipal court on Thursday.
