City man sentenced to second life sentence

YOUNGSTOWN – Brian Donlow Jr. of Youngstown, 26, who was convicted at trial last month, received a sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole Tuesday for killing Christopher Jackson Jr., 21, of Warren Nov. 18, 2018.

That sentence is in addition to the 21-years-to-life in prison he received in February 2020, also in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court, for killing Brandon Wylie, 30, June 18, 2018, five months before the Jackson killing.

Both killings took place on Youngstown’s East Side.
