EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) -- An Ohio police chief says charges are expected Monday against the suspect being held in an investigation into the discovery of three women's bodies in trash bags.

East Cleveland Police Chief Ralph Spotts says there are no plans to resume searching in and around abandoned houses in the neighborhood where the bodies were found separately on Friday and Saturday.

Spotts on Sunday identified the suspect as 35-year-old registered sex offender Michael Madison. He said Madison is expected to be formally charged Monday, but did not elaborate.

A medical examiner says the bodies were in advanced stages of decomposition, and it will take days to identify the women and determine how they died.

Sunday's search of about 40 abandoned houses and other areas turned up no more bodies.
