CANTON, Ohio (News/Talk 1480 WHBC) – A non-jury trial was set to begin Tuesday morning for a 47-year-old former Stark County man already on death row for a triple killing in Cuyahoga County.

George Brinkman is charged with aggravated murder for the shooting deaths of Gene and Roberta John at their Lake Township home on Mount Pleasant Street NE back in June of 2017.

A three-judge panel will decide his guilt or innocence.

They could also sentence him to death, if found guilty.

He got the death penalty for killing a North Royalton woman and her two adult daughters the day before.
