Bond set for suspect in city’s latest homicide



Published: Mon, March 14, 2011 @ 2:09 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN

The 53-year-old man facing charges in the city’s most recent homicide is being held in the county jail on a $750,000 bond and scheduled to be back in court March 22.

Jerry Smith Sr., 53, of Tremble Avenue, Campbell, appeared for arraignment today before Magistrate Anthony Sertick of Youngstown Municipal Court on a murder charge. The arraignment took place shortly after Smith voluntarily turned himself in to police this morning.

Prosecutors told the court Smith has prior arrests for domestic violence, theft and violation of a protection order. Prosecutors asked the court to impose a $1 million bond.

Smith told the court he is employed part time at a child development center and was initially given a court appointed attorney, however, Attorney Mike Hanni informed the court he had been retained by Smith’s family. He asked the court for a reduced bond because his client has a minimal criminal history and did turn himself in.

Magistrate Sertick set bond at $750,000. Smith will appear in court at 10:30 a.m. March 22 for a preliminary hearing.

According to the Vindy.com,"Smith has prior arrests for domestic violence, theft and violation of a protection order" and "Smith told the court he is employed part time at a child development center". It worries me to think that this person worked at a child development center... What type of children are they developing there?
