Extradition hearing set for third suspect in fatal Warren arson

Staff report

An extradition hearing is set in Virginia for one of the suspects in the Warren arson that killed 16-year-old Chassidy Broadstone last month.

Zackary Gurd, 23, was arraigned Monday in Chesterfield General District court, Chesterfield, Va., its records state.

At that court appearance, Gurd was scheduled for an extradition hearing at 8:30 a.m. Feb. 23.

Gurd was placed at the scene of the fatal Nevada Avenue NW fire by cellphone tracking and video cameras, authorities said late last week.

Two other people were arrested last Wednesday in the fatal blaze, and made their initial appearance on aggravated murder charges in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court.

The Virginia arrest by the U.S. Marshals Service came after investigators developed information that Gurd fled the Warren area on a Greyhound bus and was heading south, potentially toward Florida.

Authorities obtained information last Thursday that Gurd got off the Greyhound bus in Richmond, Va., and fled on foot. Marshals in Virginia tracked him from the bus station in Richmond to the 1200 block of Iron Bridge Road in Chester, Va., where he was arrested.

His arrest came within 24 hours of getting off the bus in Richmond.

Two other people last week made their initial appearance on aggravated murder charges in Trumbull County Common Pleas court. Judge Sean O’Brien ordered Brendan Michael Daviduk, 28, and Patricia Ann Zarlingo, 27, both of Manchester Avenue in Youngstown, held without bond in connection with the arson and death.

An affidavit showed the tragic fire may have resulted from a “feud involving adults”
