Man released in 2010 murder, back in court for charges of retaliation

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - In 2010, a Youngstown man was accused of murder outside of Saint Dominic's Church, but was never convicted because police said he was arrested on "hearsay evidence."

Jamar Houser spent nearly two and a half years in jail and faced the death penalty if convicted of killing 80-year-old Angeline Fimognari in the parking lot of the church. 

Now, three years later, Jamar Houser is being indicted on retaliation charges.

Jamar Houser's father, John Houser Sr., was sentenced to one year in prison with charges of witness intimidation for threatening the same witness at the time of his son's initial trial.

Evidence against Jamar Houser was thrown out when a positive match of the palm print of Duane Colvin, who was also murdered in an unrelated incident, was found on the car of Fimognari.
