Woman pleads guilty to role in mobile home robbery

Staff report


Gina C. Little, 18, has pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated robbery and one count of aggravated burglary in connection with a violent March 14 robbery in Arhaven Mobile Home Park in Newton Falls, where she was living.

Little, who listed addresses of West Gate Drive in Braceville Township and Krum Row Road in Akron, entered the plea in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court before Judge Andrew Logan.

Little and Todd M. Smith, 35, also of West Gate Drive, were charged after police said they broke into a neighbor’s mobile home wearing masks and demanded money and drugs.

During the robbery, Smith stabbed Jamie Stein, 33, seven times, causing serious injuries, and stabbed Timothy J. Wagner, 31, at least once, police said. Wagner was treated at ValleyCare Trumbull Memorial Hospital.

Prosecutors said Little’s plea agreement calls for her to receive a three-year prison sentence in exchange for testimony about the robbery.

Smith’s girlfriend told police Smith and Little planned the robbery because Smith was $1,200 behind on the rent and needed money.
