Killer of Youngstown celebrity brother gets more time added to sentence
The killer of Youngstown celebrity Omarosa's brother has gotten more time added to his sentence.
Marco Cardenas, 34, has been sentenced to an extra three to four and a half years in prison for possession of a weapon under detention.
According to court records, this stems from an incident where Cardenas attempted to kill a corrections officer at the Northeast Ohio Corrections Facility in Hubbard.
He was also additionally charged with attempted murder, felonious assault and possession of criminal tools but because he plead guilty on Nov. 6, those were dropped.
The trial was originally called a mistrial by Judge Anthony D'Apolito and rescheduled for this week.
Cardenas was already serving a 21 year prison sentence for the murder of Jack Manigault, who was shot and killed in bed at a home on East Avondale Avenue on the South Side in 2011.
Manigault was the brother of Omarosa, famous for her time on The Apprentice, who also worked as a White House aide for former President Donald Trump.
