Canton Man Could Get Death Penalty in Akron Double Killing

AKRON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – A 36-year-old Canton man could get the death penalty if convicted of running down an Akron man and his 1-year-old daughter back in July.

Shawn Allen had already been indicted on aggravated murder charges in the killings of 43-year-old Horace Lee and little Azeria Tucker.

A grand jury just added the death penalty specifications.

Prosecutors say Allen ran the two down as Lee pushed the youngster in a stroller down a Crouse Street sidewalk.

That followed an altercation between Allen and Lee outside a bar.
