Third suspect charged with murdering Youngstown man

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The Mahoning County Grand Jury has found enough evidence to indict three people for the shooting death of a 24-year-old Youngstown man on the city's south side earlier this month.

The latest person charged with the murder of Maurise Kerns is 22-year-old Antwanette Kennedy of Youngstown.

Kennedy was indicted along with two brothers from Boardman, 25-year-old Bralin and 26-year-old Beandre Allen.

The Allen brothers are held on $1-million bond each. Kennedy has not been arrested.

The  suspects are accused of fatally shooting  Kerns, whose body was found on the front porch of a vacant home on the 500 block of Idora Avenue around 3:00 a.m. on April 1.

Police believe that the murder was in retaliation for a shooting on Glenwood Avenue ten days previous to the Kerns shooting.
