A Hubbard man has been charged with the fatal stabbing of his wife at a Coitsville motel.

Forty-eight-year-old Francis Rydarowicz was indicted Thursday by the Mahoning County Grand Jury on charges of aggravated murder, murder, felonious assault, and domestic violence.

Until the indictment, Coitsville Police characterized Rydarowicz as a person of interest in the death of 41-year-old Katherine Rydarowicz who was found stabbed in the back on June 22 at the Kings Motel on Route 422 near the state line.

Officers attempted CPR to revive the Hubbard woman, but she was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to police, Francis Rydarowicz has a lengthy criminal history from Trumbull and Mahoning County and has at least three prior felony arrests for domestic violence.

Rydarowicz was arrested in 2016 in Hubbard after police say attempted to assault a 71-year-old female with a blow torch and then set her car on fire. He was charged with felonious assault, arson and domestic violence in connection with that incident, according to police.

Coitsville Police Chief Michael Morris says Rydarowicz was convicted earlier this year following his arrest on a charge of domestic violence filed in Austintown. After serving 104 days of the 180-day sentence, Morris says Rydarowicz was released in March and placed on probation for three years.

Rydarowicz was placed at the Kings Motel by his parole officer because he had no place to live. He was still wearing his electronic ankle bracelet at the time of his wife's stabbing, according to police.
