Ohio murder suspect arrested near Seymour


A traffic stop Monday near Seymour by an Indiana State Police trooper led to the driver of the vehicle being arrested on a warrant for murder out of Maple Heights, Ohio.

The investigation began when Master Trooper Randel Miller conducted a traffic stop on a 2016 Hyundai passenger vehicle for a traffic violation on northbound Interstate 65 in northern Jackson County,

The vehicle, being driven by Shannon W. Liccardo, 34, of Twinsburg, Ohio, exited Intersrate 65 onto State Road 11 at the Jonesville exit, where it then came to a stop, according to a news release from Sgt. Stephen Wheeles with the Indiana State Police Versailles Post.

Wheeles, the post’s public information officer, said Liccardo initially provided Miller with a false name before revealing his true identity. A check on Liccardo revealed he was wanted on a warrant for murder out of Maple Heights, Ohio, which is in the northeastern part of that state near Cleveland. The warrant was issued Friday, Wheeles reported.

Miller took Liccardo into custody without incident, and he was booked into the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown at 12:50 p.m. Monday on the warrant, pending extradition back to Ohio.

Sgt. Adam Bullock and Master Trooper Jason Hankins assisted Miller with the arrest of Liccardo.

The Maple Heights, Ohio, police department declined to disclose any details Monday afternoon about the incident that led to the murder warrant being issued for Liccardo’s arrest.
