Warren man questioned in Sunset Lounge killing


Orlonzo Murry, 26, was back in Trumbull County Tuesday night and on video arraignment Wednesday morning on a gun charge police say is connected to the New Year’s Day shooting death at the Sunset Lounge.

Judge Terry Ivanchak of Warren Municipal Court entered an innocent plea for Murry, of Bennett Avenue Northwest, to a felony charge of possession of a firearm in liquor premises.

Judge Ivanchak ordered that Murry remain in Trumbull County jail without eligibility to make bond until a bond hearing at 10:15 a.m. Friday.

Warren police drove to Columbus Tuesday and brought Murry back.

Police say Murry is not a suspect in the shooting death of Cory Blackwell, 25, of Warren, but he is a “person of interest,” and police wanted to talk to him about the case.
