YOUNGSTOWN

With one suspect in Thomas Repchic’s murder behind bars on a $3 million bond, police now want to get their hands on the second suspect who has managed to elude them for several days.

They are focusing attention on the capture of Aubrey F. Toney, 29, of Youngstown. Police Capt. Rod Foley said officers have been working virtually nonstop looking for him.

“We are searching high and low for this individual and hoping he or members of his family come to their senses, and he turns himself in,” said Foley. “You can’t live in a box forever.”

Kevin D. Agee Jr., 25, of West Ravenwood Avenue, appeared Wednesday before Judge Elizabeth Kobly of Youngstown Municipal Court for arraignment on aggravated murder and felonious assault charges. The judge set bond at $1 million on the assault charge and $2 million on the murder.

Prosecutors said Agee reportedly has admitted to driving the SUV used in the drive-by shooting of 74-year-old Repchic and wounding of his wife Jacqueline over the weekend.

Foley said police believe the shooting was a case of mistaken identity in a feud between two rival factions.

“Unfortunately, they took this feud to another level where there was possibly past gunplay between these people and they were actually trying to kill one another,” said Foley.

Foley said there does not appear to be a gang connection in the shooting. But at least one of the men may have been affiliated in the past with a gang that once operated in Youngstown by the name of “5150s”.

Neither Agee nor Toney is a stranger to the criminal justice system. Court records show both men have previous felony convictions.

Agee, according to court records, was convicted of criminal trespassing, a charge amended from breaking and entering, and sentenced to 22 days in jail in 2007. He was also shot in the leg during a 2001 drive-by shooting on the city’s South Side.

Toney has criminal case convictions dating back to 2003. He was most recently convicted of three counts of trafficking in crack cocaine in 2008 and sentenced to 18 months in jail with a fine of $5,000.

Toney was charged with possession of drugs and possession of cocaine in 2005. He ultimately pleaded guilty to the charges and was sentenced to prison, but court and prison records do not state how much time he served.

In 2003 Toney was charged with possession of drugs, trafficking in marijuana and trafficking in cocaine. He ultimately pleaded guilty to trafficking in marijuana and trafficking in cocaine, and was sentenced to two years’ probation with treatment at a community-based corrections facility.

Toney also was sentenced to a year in prison for probation violation after being arrested on the 2005 charges while still on probation for the 2003 drug charges.

Oh the little useless filthy cowering animal is scared and running. How I wish I would bump into you and well lets just say, it'll be a long time before you would be found.

If there is evidence that the family of this monkey knows the whereabouts of Toney, even if it is a small piece of evidence, then charge the entire freaking family with the murder. It would be a huge help with stabilizing the worlds gene pool.

I wouldn't give him the name of an animal but This individual is going down the wrong road! There are no success stories...with excess use of alcohol and definitely no success stories with excess legal or any kind of use in street drugs...Unless a drug is approved by the FDA then it is for getting high....The only thing abusive drug use or sale does is rob steal kills and destroys life on both ends...

Once you find him, take him straight to prison and death row-------no trial needed.

When this story was originally reported, I stated that the crime was most likely committed by drug offenders, the blight and downfall of our country.

Now that the authorities have them, the government needs to act quickly to put an end to their pitiful lives. Oh I almost forgot, we have to respect thier rights and give them a fair trial, and most likely, house them as "guests" of the state for the next 30 years or so.
