YOUNGSTOWN

A North Side man is in custody for a homicide earlier this week.

Police have charged 51-year-old David Hackett of New York Avenue with aggravated murder for the death of 30-year-old Collena Carpenter of Homeworth. She was found dead on an access road off of West Avenue early Monday morning.

Lt. Douglas Bobovnyik of the Detective Bureau would not give a motive for why Carpenter was killed. He said Hackett is an “acquaintance” of Carpenter.

He is expected to be arraigned in Youngstown Municipal Court on Friday.
