Trial of 2 in Youngstown frat party shootings moved

Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The trial of two of the remaining suspects in a fraternity house shooting near the campus of Youngstown State University that left one man dead and 11 others wounded has been moved to another county.

The trial of Mark Jones and Jamelle Jackson will begin November 26th in Akron.

The two are accused in the shooting death of 25-year- old Jamail Johnson.

Mahoning County Common Pleas Court Judge John Durkin agreed to a defense motion to move the trial because of pretrial publicity in Youngstown.

The judge overruled a defense motion for appointment of a special prosecutor.

According to our print partner, The Vindicator, it was the first time in 19 years that a judge in Youngstown has moved a trial.

Last month Columbus Jones was found guilty of murder and felonious assault in Johnson's death and was sentenced to serve 92 years to life in prison.
