Special prosecutor named in murder case



Published: Tue, July 10, 2007 @ 3:21 p.m.

WELLSVILLE — A special prosecutor has been named to investigate a shooting death that is complicated by conflicts of interest.

Atty. Lynn A. Grimshaw of Wheelersburg, Ohio, who has worked as a special prosecutor, was appointed to head the investigation.

Columbiana County Prosecutor Robert Herron said Tuesday he knew immediately that he and Wellsville Police Chief Joe Scarabino would have to step aside in the death of Tonia Amato, 25.

She was the wife of Jack Amato Jr., 35, of 1200 Commerce St.

Her father-in-law, Dr. Jack Amato, is a member of the county health department, which Herron represents.

Herron also said he knew he would also have to step aside because Dr. Amato would likely be a material witness in the case. That’s a witness whose testimony is needed to resolve the case.
