Akron woman pleads guilt to lesser charges in double murder

YOUNGSTOWN — Courtney Hall of Akron pleaded guilty today to three counts of tampering with evidence in the Feb. 29 shooting deaths of Sierra Morris and her father, Leroy Morris, in their Youngstown home.

Hall, 30, is the girlfriend of John C. Bruner III, 31, who pleaded guilty earlier to the murders and was sentenced to 41 years to life in prison.

Prosecutors say Hall drove Bruner to the Morris’ West Judson Avenue home and drove him home afterward. Bruner also asked her to get rid of his clothes and the murder weapon.

Hall, 30, will be sentenced Nov. 13 before Judge John Durkin of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court.
