Bond set for man accused of stabbing wife at bar


YOUNGSTOWN — Bond has been set at $50,000 for a man accused of stabbing his wife early today at a bar in the 3000 block of Southern Boulevard.

Derrick Boone, 50, was arraigned in municipal court before Magistrate Anthony Sertick on a charge of felonious assault. Assistant City Prosecutor Jeffrey Moliterno said Boone has a long record of violence, including past convictions for felonious assault and domestic violence.

Police were called to the bar just after 1:30 a.m. for a report of a fight between a man and a woman and when they arrived they saw bar patrons carrying the victim out of the bar with stab wounds to her cheek and bicep and her chest was covered in blood. Reports said witnesses told police Boone had stabbed his wife and he was found in the parking lot urinating on his car and he appeared to be very drunk.

Boone is in the Mahoning County jail.
