Delaware County authorities have identified the man they consider a person of interest in the shooting death of an Eaton man over the weekend.
Police arrested 58-year old William Martz of Eaton Sunday after they found the victim’s pickup truck in his possession. Martz is currently being held on charges of Possession of Stolen Property plus several drug-related charges.
Investigators believe Martz may be responsible for the shooting death of 50-year old Mark Gilland, whose body was found inside the barn of a rental property he owned Saturday night.
Relatives say Gilland was going to evict Martz from the property. It’s believed Gilland was shot during an argument that ensued.
The case remains under investigation.
