Youngstown stabbing victim identified as Homeworth woman

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The Mahoning County Coroner released the identity of a woman found stabbed to death on Youngstown's west side.

Officials say the body is that of 30-year-old Collena Lynne Carpenter, of Homeworth, Ohio.

Carpenter's body was found around 9 a.m. Monday in a vacant lot across from the Youngstown Water Department on West Avenue.
 
Multiple stab wounds were found on the body and the police are treating the incident as a homicide.
 
In August, Carpenter was indicted by the Mahoning County Grand Jury on charges of possessing chemicals for the illegal manufacture of drugs and obstructing justice.
 
She was charged following a raid in July on her apartment in Jackson Township where authorities believe she was living with 41-year-old Bryan Dilling who was arrested by U.S. Marshals for a drug warrant and probation violation.
