An Eaton man now faces formal murder charges in connection with the shooting death of his landlord a week ago.
58-year old William Martz has been formally charged with the shooting death of 50-year old Mark Gilland. Gilland’s body was found January 11th inside the barn of the rental property in Eaton that he rented to Martz. Gilland had told family and friends that he was going to evict Martz. An argument apparently ensued and Gilland was shot to death.
Martz was later found and arrested at a Muncie motel with Gilland’s truck. He’s expected to make an initial court appearance on the charges later this week.
