Mahoning grand jury indicts 2 men in March 3 homicide

YOUNGSTOWN — A Mahoning County grand jury today indicted two men for the March 3 homicide of an Austintown man on the West Side.

Last week, grand jurors indicted Mark Winlock, 18, of Austintown, for the death of Brandon Wareham, also 18.

Police said Wareham was at a Rhoda Avenue home to sell marijuana when Winlock walked out of the home to Wareham’s car, put him in a headlock, and shot him.

Wareham managed to pull out of the drive but crashed into a parked car. He died later of his wounds at St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital.

When Winlock was arraigned in municipal court, prosecutors said several other people were at the home at the time Wareham was killed. Detectives also said at the time that they were exploring charging other people who were present and were consulting with prosecutors.

The identities of the two people indicted today will be released when they are arrested.
