22-year Old Canton Man Found Guilty of Murder

A 22-year old Canton man has been convicted of murder in the February 2023 shooting of Garry Marx, Jr.
The Stark County Prosecutors office says a jury found Jamaari Harper guilty of murder and aggravated robbery plus using a gun in the crime. Prosecutors say Marx was carrying laundry to his car when he interrupted Harper trying to steal items out of the vehicle. That’s when the shooting occurred.
Harper will be sentenced tomorrow by Stark County Common Pleas Judge Kristin Farmer.
