Trial set to begin for Warren man accused of murdering his parents

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - Jury selection is scheduled to begin Monday for a man accused of strangling his mother then bludgeoning and shooting his dad to death in their home.

Louis Mann is accused of murdering his parents Fran and Philip Mann in 2011 after an argument with his mother.

According to an affidavit Mann was cooking a hamburger at his parents Jefferson Street home when he and his mother began arguing about Mann's child.

Police say Mann grabbed a clothesline and strangled his mother to death.

Mann's father then came into the room with a rifle, but Louis got the gun away and beat his father with a flashlight before shooting him.

Warren and Howland police tracked Mann to the Capri motel in Howland, where he surrendered. 

The manager at the motel told 21 news when Mann checked in he was talking about ordering a pizza and possibly upgrading to a Jacuzzi room the next day.

On Friday, Trumbull County Common Pleas Judge Wyatt McKay, who is presiding over the case, denied most of the defense attorney's thirty one motions, many of which dealt with the death penalty, which Mann faces if convicted.

Judge McKay denied a defense motion that would have prohibited the prosecutor from dismissing potential jurors opposed to the death penalty.

The judge also denied a motion to move the location of the trial, saying it was premature.
