Man charged with murder in 2 Ohio factory deaths

Police say a man has been charged with murder in the shooting deaths of two people at an Ohio manufacturing plant.

The aggravated-murder charges filed Sunday come two days after authorities say Pedro Rodriguez killed 49-year-old Graciela Morales outside the Cleveland factory where she worked.

Police say Rodriguez used her employee identification card to get inside the building and then shot her co-worker Eduardo Pupo. Rodriguez is scheduled to appear in court Monday; it wasn't immediately clear if he had a lawyer.

A spokesman for the Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH-guh) County coroner says autopsies show Morales was shot four times and Pupo six times.

Authorities say Morales had filed a stalking report against Rodriguez in July but decided not to press charges.
