Man indicted in South Side homicide

A Mahoning County grand jury Thursday indicted a man in a Nov. 15 shooting death on the South Side.

Lavelle Stanley, 24, of East Judson Avenue, was indicted on a direct presentment on charges of aggravated murder, attempted murder, felonious assault with firearm specifications and being a felon in illegal possession of a firearm.

Stanley is charged with killing 25-year-old Elliot Stewart of Youngstown and wounding of brother, 26-year-old Derrick Stewart about 5:20 p.m. Nov. 15 at a Southern Boulevard business they operated.

Reports said the two were shot after Elliot Stewart intervened in an argument between two women, and a man was upset that Stewart got involved.

Elliot Stewart and the man, who police say is Stanley, seemed to have their differences ironed out before the brothers were shot.

Police issued a warrant for Stanley’s arrest Sunday, but they have not been able to find him.

Records from Mahoning County Common Pleas Court show Stanley pleaded guilty to a charge of being a felon in illegal possession of a firearm in 2009 and was sentenced to a year in prison.
