Grand jury indicts Boardman man on attempted murder, assault, kidnapping charges



Published: Thu, June 7, 2012 @ 3:40 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — A Mahoning County grand jury today indicted a Boardman man on charges of attempted murder and felonious assault on his estranged wife by stabbing her on Sunday with a knife and with kidnapping her and endangering their 2-year-old son.

Those charges against John F. Sylvester, 37, of Jaguar Drive, also carry repeat violent offender specifications attached to the alleged offenses against his wife, Kelli.

He is charged with stabbing his wife in their Jaguar Drive residence in the presence of their son.

Police then coaxed John Sylvester down and arrested and jailed him later on Sunday when he threatened to jump off the Market Street bridge in Youngstown.

The repeat violent offender specifications, which could add to Sylvester’s prison time if he’s convicted, stem from a previous attempted murder conviction in 1999.

Judge Joseph M. Houser of Boardman Court set his bond at $2 million on Tuesday.
