Theodis Keys Jr., 33, was charged with the murder of Lorie Miller, also 33, of Sandusky.

School let out at 1:20 p.m. Wednesday so Miller’s two boys got home earlier than usual. Dispatchers got a call at about 2 p.m.


“My mom’s ... I think she’s dead. There’s blood all over the bathroom,” one of the boys told 911 dispatchers in a recording of the call. “There’s blood everywhere in the bathroom.”


Police looked for Keys for about two hours before he walked into the Erie County Sheriff's department and turned himself in.


Officers sat him down for questioning, but Keys asked for a lawyer. He is held at the Erie County jail on no bond.
