LIMA — The case against a Lima man accused of killing his live-in girlfriend has been sent to Allen County Common Pleas Court.
Leo J. Stapleton, 48, made his second court appearance Wednesday in Lima Municipal Court. Stapleton waived his preliminary hearing, thereby sending the case to Common Pleas Court.
A grand jury will determine if there is sufficient evidence to indict Stapleton. Stapleton was being held in the Allen County Jail based on a complaint that he purposely caused the death of 40-year-old Kimberly Clark. Clark was found dead inside her apartment at 118 S. Metcalf St. on Dec. 20.
