Man accused of raping woman at gunpoint is indicted
By Joe Gorman
A Mahoning County grand jury indicted a Warren man accused of raping a woman at gunpoint while her children were present Sunday.
The grand jury indicted Keion Stella, 35, of Dunstan Drive Northwest, on Thursday on three counts of kidnapping and 10 counts of rape with a firearm specification attached to each count.
Stella is accused of going to a Parmalee Avenue home on Youngstown’s North Side about 4 p.m. Sunday to speak to a woman there about a recent breakup.
According to police, he then forced his way inside at gunpoint, tied up the woman, took her upstairs and raped her. He then took her downstairs and raped her again, according to prosecutors at his arraignment earlier this week in municipal court.
The woman’s two children, age 5 and 6, were there at the time, police said.
Police took Stella into custody a short time after he left a South Side home on Volney Road. His bond was set at $1 million after he was arraigned Tuesday in municipal court. He is in the Mahoning County jail.
Prosecutors said at his arraignment Stella also is under investigation in another rape in Warren.
The grand jury also handed up indictments against Corinthians White, 20, and Alissa L. Rodriguez, also 20, both of Delmar Avenue, Campbell.
They are both charged with three counts of child endangering.
White has been in jail since his arrest Aug. 22 when police were notified his 2-month-old child had a broken wrist that was later found to be intentionally broken.
Rodriguez has yet to be taken into custody.
Campbell police Lt. Kevin Sferra said after White was arrested, authorities learned of more abuse of the infant, who was born June 9. The indictment lists one of the counts as occurring June 9.
Rodriguez, the child’s mother, was indicted because police said she knew of the abuse but failed to report it, Sferra said.
