Aubrey Toney still faces possible death sentence in 2010 shooting, judge rules



Published: Mon, May 13, 2013 @ 7:38 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Aubrey F. Toney will still face a potential death sentence when he goes on trial for the Sept. 25, 2010, shooting death of Thomas Repchic, a judge has ruled.

Judge Maureen A. Sweeney of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court today overruled a motion by Toney’s lawyers to dismiss the death-penalty specification against their client. The jury trial for Toney, 32, of West Judson Avenue, who is charged with aggravated murder, attempted murder and two counts of felonious assault with firearm specifications, is to begin July 15.

The defense lawyers, John B. Juhasz and Paul C. Conn, argued that Ohio’s death penalty is racially discriminatory, violates the equal-protection clause of the U.S. Constitution and imposes cruel and unusual punishment.

There should be no plea deal. Let him take the full brunt of what he did to this respectable older couple.

This is why cockroaches do the things they do. Why do we even question such obvious outcomes for this trash and others like him!! If you kill someone you should die immediately no questions asked. Take the movie theater killer, a trial for what?? For them to whine how bad he had it and on and on!!! Prison for a short time and most likely a release is what these cockroaches bet on from our courts.Hang them, shoot them, or what ever but get rid of their DNA for good.
