UPDATE: Wed. 10:48 a.m.: $1.5M bond set for Youngstown man in Warren murder

WARREN — The man who was died from injuries suffered Sunday at a Milton Street SE address had apparent broken bones, a severe laceration, possible internal and other major injuries, according to a Warren police report.

Meanwhile, Warren Municipal Judge Thomas Gysegem set bond at $1.5 million for Ronieque K. Requel, 196 W. Myrtle Ave., Youngstown, the man who remains in custody on charges of murder, aggravated burglary and possessing weapons when prohibited because of a prior felony conviction. A preliminary hearing date was set for Feb. 16.

A police report states that all Warren patrol units were dispatched after 1 a.m. Sunday to the Milton Street address where they discovered the mortally injured Adam T. Spaid, 28.

Spaid, who was listed on the report as living at the address but had a New Middletown address on his obituary, passed away later at a local hospital.

Mahoning County court records show Requel was sentenced in 2019 by Judge Anthony D’Apolito to serve six months in prison after he pleaded guilty to a six-count indictment showing charges of breaking and entering, vandalism and receiving stolen property for a 2018 incident.

Warren police Chief Eric Merkle said he can’t comment on more details about the murder case as it is still under investigation.

The funeral for Spaid is scheduled for Thursday in New Middletown.

Spaid’s obituary noted that he lived in the area his whole life and worked in construction in various positions. He liked camping, music and traveling to see groups in concert. He is survived by his mother of New Middletown and a companion, Gabby McCullough of Sharon, Pa., who is listed as a victim in the police report about the murder.
