Youngstown man convicted of 1997 slaying in Ashtabula



Published: Wed, August 28, 2013 @ 7:01 p.m.

ASHTABULA — Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said a Youngstown man, the sixth and final suspect linked earlier this year to the 1997 murder of an Ashtabula man, was convicted today.

A jury found John Drummond Jr., 36, guilty of aggravated murder, kidnapping, and gun specifications after a trial prosecuted by attorneys with the attorney general’s Special Prosecutions Section.

“Even when a case is years old, it’s still possible to achieve justice,” DeWine said. “This is one reason why we continue to highlight unsolved homicides and encourage anyone with information to come forward.”

Drummond was one of six men indicted earlier this year with the February 1997 shooting death of Ronald Hull in Ashtabula.

John Drummond Jr will get a new trial in the killing of the baby with the AK-47. With this recent trial using ancient evidence he will have plenty of opportunity to have this conviction overturned. He has a good chance of being back on the streets.
