SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTHI) - We have now learned the name of the woman that was killed on Wednesday night at the Days Inn in Sullivan.

According to police, 49-year-old Leslie Shayne Miller of Shelburn died of multiple gunshot wounds to the chest.

That's according to a preliminary autopsy report.

On Wednesday, police were called to the Days Inn hotel on reports that an unruly woman locked herself in her hotel room.
