Marsh triple murder suspect transferred here from prison

YOUNGSTOWN

The man indicted by a grand jury last week for a 1974 triple homicide in Canfield Township was transferred Thursday from the Marion Correctional Institution to the Mahoning County jail.

James Ferrara, 64, is expected to be arraigned next week in common pleas court here for the murders of Benjamin Marsh, 33, his wife Marilyn, 32, and their 4-year-old daughter Heather, on Dec. 14, 1974, in their South Turner Road home.

Ferrara is serving a sentence in Marion for a double homicide in Worthington in 1983.

The Marsh’s 1-year-old son, Christopher, survived the attack unharmed and was later adopted by relatives.

Investigators announced last week they were able to link Ferrara to the crime through fingerprints at the crime scene that were resubmitted to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification.

This was a nice field trip for Ferrara to get out of prison for awhile and visit our nice court system here. He's already serving life so I guess if he dies and comes back he can begin serving whatever term he gets for this other murder.
