A Peoria, Ill., woman remains in custody in northern Ohio, but under psychological care, according to officials there.

A woman with the Sandusky County Clerk of the Courts office said Tuesday that Susan K. Howard, 57, whose address is listed as 714 W. Corrington Ave., had not yet appeared in court after being booked Saturday on the single count of attempted murder.

Details remain sparse on why Howard was booked.

According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, she was stopped for speeding on the Ohio Turnpike near Milan, Ohio at 9:22 a.m. Saturday.Two people were in the car and the state trooper who made contact indicated he "noticed indicators of violence." Howard and the passenger were taken to the hospital to be treated for undetermined injuries, according to the news release.

The traffic stop was made, the news release said, after an incident that occurred in London, Ohio, which is located about 30 minutes west of Columbus and about 2 1/2 hours south of where the traffic stop occurred.

A trooper at the Ohio State Highway Patrol post which handled the traffic declined to give more information, saying the matter was "under investigation."
