Campbell man indicted on murder charges for allegedly stabbing daughter

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

A Campbell man who claimed he was "off his meds" when he allegedly stabbed his daughter has been indicted by a Mahoning County Grand Jury. 

Twenty-nine-year-old Marc Anthony Flora is now facing charges at the county level, including two charges of aggravated murder and one charge of murder. 

Flora was being held in the Mahoning County Jail on a $500,00 bond, following an incident on August 17th, in which he called 911 to report that he was covered in blood. 

As 21 News arrived on the scene in the 200 block of Penhale Avenue, yellow crime scene tape blocked off a portion of the street. The coroner's van pulled up to join paramedics and police who were already on the scene.

Campbell Police Lieutenant Kevin Sferra said, "She was stabbed in the neck.  That was the major wound."

Investigators say it was hard to tell at this point if the one-year-old who has now been identified as Jane Flora suffered other stab wounds or injuries.  An autopsy is expected to be performed on Monday.

Campbell Police Chief Dennis Puskarcik and Chief Detective Lieutenant Kevin Sferra say Flora was immediately taken into custody.  The one-year-old victim's mother was at work but rushed to the scene to get to her two-year-old son.

"The other child was sleeping in another room and we actually had to wake him up so, as far as we know he didn't see or hear anything," Lt. Sferra said.

Just hours after being taken into custody Marc Flora was in Campbell Court, officially charged with one count of murder in the death of Jane Flora.  

Sources tell 21 News no drugs were found in the home, but Flora claims that he's bi-polar but has not been using his medication.  However, police have nothing at this point to confirm that he is bi-polar.

The following is a transcript of the phone call Flora made to police:

FLORA: I need someone to come to 290 Penhale Ave. I just blacked out and she's dead...I don't remember what happened.  All I know she is that she's dead...I need someone here now.

DISPATCHER: A Life Fleet? You need an ambulance? You blacked out?

FLORA: I don't remember. I don't know. I'm covered in blood. I don't know what's going on.
