Xenia (ZEEN'-yuh) police Capt. Alonzo Wilson said Thursday that police responded to a report of the stabbings around 10 p.m. Wednesday. Wilson said 57-year-old Ralphael Sheppard died at the scene and 84-year-old Estella Sheppard died at a hospital.
Police say 55-year-old Winston Sheppard was arrested on charges of murder and felonious assault. His bond has been set at $1 million.
Xenia Municipal Court records don't show an attorney for Sheppard.
Police say the stabbing apparently resulted from a verbal argument that escalated.
