Houser arrested 3rd time since dismissal from Fimognari case

A man who was once charged with murder — only to have the case dismissed — was indicted by a Mahoning County grand jury Thursday on firearm charges.

Jamar Houser, 23, of Volney Road, was indicted on a count of improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Houser was arrested July 9 in a driveway in the 3000 block of Hudson Avenue after police were called to the South Side to investigate a report that Houser was firing shots at someone from a car. A handgun was found in the driver’s seat of the car Houser was driving, reports said.

Houser had been charged in the Jan. 23, 2010, murder of Angeline Fimognari, 80, of Sheridan Road, in the parking lot of St. Dominic Church on the South Side and could have faced the death penalty if convicted. In May 2012, however, those charges were dropped after a palm print found at the crime scene was matched to another person, who had been shot and killed after Fimognari’s death.

Since then, Houser has been arrested three times.
