Authorities believe Erik Cunningham killed his wife four days before she was found and a day after he called police to their home, according to a murder indictment filed against him Thursday.

The indictment says Lacie Cunningham, 33, died on Dec. 31. Erik Cunningham, 31, was arrested after he went to the Portage County Sheriff’s Office on Jan. 3 and raised concerns for her welfare.

Brimfield police found Lacie Cunningham in the garage that night, dead from an apparent gunshot wound, at the couple's home in the 2400 block of Hazelnut Drive.

A Portage County grand jury on Thursday indicted Erik Cunningham on two counts of murder, each an unclassified felony, and felonious assault, a second-degree felony. Each count of the indictment has a firearms specification, meaning grand jurors believed Erik Cunningham had a gun and used it during the incident.

On Dec. 30, officers were called to the home because Erik Cunningham believed he was under surveillance. According to a report, he told police he had disassembled several electronic devices to see surveillance equipment inside and to show police that the devices were fake.

He also told police that he believed that Lacie Cunningham was involved in the surveillance.

Lacie Cunningham told police that her husband had a history of mental illness and had stopped taking his medication, the report said.
