A man has been indicted by a Mahoning County grand jury in connection with a homicide at the Struthers Manor complex July 13.

Roy Cleary, 40, of Poland Avenue, was indicted Thursday on charges of aggravated murder, murder, tampering with evidence and aggravated robbery.

He is accused of killing 56-year-old Mark Westfall and taking his vehicle, which was found after Westfall’s murder in Farrell, Pa.

Cleary is in the Mahoning County jail after being arrested in Pennsylvania and extradited back to Ohio. He is expected to be arraigned in common pleas court early next month.

Cleary was taken into custody by U.S. marshals at UPMC Presbyterian hospital in Pittsburgh just a day after the murder, and authorities recovered the vehicle at UPMC Horizon in Farrell. Police said Cleary had been claiming injury and seeking prescription drugs at western Pennsylvania hospitals after Westfall’s death.

Police said Westfall was stabbed several times in the back, stomach, neck and arms.

Westfall had not been seen for a while and was discovered by a maintenance worker sent to check on him.

Some evidence, including a pair of shoes that were covered in blood, were found in the apartment of Cleary’s mother, police said. The shoes match a bloody imprint found at the crime scene.
