CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – A 16-year-old Canton boy will be sentenced next month on an involuntary manslaughter conviction, arising from the shooting death of a city man last year.
Anthony Moore was in common pleas court last week.
A murder charge was dropped.
Police and prosecutors say Moore was just 15 last July when he shot 45-year-old Craig Blackshear on the front porch of a house on 4th Street NW, just west of the city’s park system.
Blackshear was struck several times.
Moore was to go on trial next month.
37-year-old co-defendant Megan Coladonato from Pike Township is doing 18 months time for obstruction of justice.
