By CNN Staff

The identification of a second woman found dead in Ohio prompted her mother, whose son was slain seven months ago, to plead for prayers.

Shetisha Sheeley, 28, was one of three women whose bodies were found wrapped in trash bags over the weekend in East Cleveland. They were at different sites a few blocks from one another.

"I don't know why this person did what they did to my daughter, but I just want everybody, just pray for me. Because this is really, really hard on me right now," Kim Sheeley told CNN affiliate WEWS. "It was really hard. It's taken a toll out of me. I don't know what else to say, but thank you all for whoever is praying for me."

Wiping away tears, she said her 25-year-old son was killed in an unrelated incident in December.

In the latest killings that include Sheeley, the first victim was found in a garage Friday, naked with indications of trauma, police say.

Sheeley's body was the second, and was discovered in a field while a third was in the basement of an empty home. Both were found Saturday.

Police said the first victim was Angela Deskins, 38, -- the third one remains unidentified.

East Cleveland Mayor Gary Norton believes the killings happened over 10 days and are by the same assailant.

"One of the things that makes us believe it's the same suspect is the way that they were all wrapped ... and the same concealment of each of the victims," he said.

He warned there may be more bodies.

"We are dealing with a sick individual, and we have reason to believe that there might be more victims," Norton said.

Michael Madison, 35, was formally charged Monday in the deaths.

The garage where the first victim was found was leased to Madison, police said.

A search of his apartment found "additional evidence of decomposition" there, said Detective Sgt. Scott Gardner with the East Cleveland police.

He was taken into custody without incident after a standoff at his mother's house.

East Cleveland is seven miles northeast of Cleveland.
