Man involved in Rowan Sweeney shooting pleads guilty to murder
The man involved in the killing of a four-year-old Struthers boy has pled guilty to an amended charge in court on Wednesday.
Twenty-two-year-old Andre McCoy pled guilty to one amended count of murder. McCoy was originally charged with four counts of aggravated murder and one count of attempted murder. These charges have been dropped.
This charge stems from the murder of Rowan Sweeney of Struthers back in September of 2020. The state recommended a sentence of 15 years to life in prison, a recommendation Sweeney's family approved of.
Additionally, this sentence could come with a maximum fine of $15,000.
McCoy is one of three suspects involved in a deadly shooting in Struthers that killed four-year-old Rowan Sweeney in September of 2020. Other suspects include 26-year-old Kimonie Bryant and 20-year-old Brandon Crump.
