Youngstown woman appears in court on murder charge

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

A Youngstown woman, who police tracked for two months, answered to a murder charge Tuesday morning in court.

Antwanette Kennedy, 23, pleaded not guilty at her arraignment. A grand jury charged Kennedy in connection with the death of Maurise Kerns.

Bralin, 25, and Beandre Allen, 26, were arrested earlier for the shooting death of Kerns, whose body was found on the front porch of a vacant home on the 500 block of Idora Avenue on April 1.

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

Kennedy turned herself into police on Friday.
