Tue., 12:43pm: Struthers mom enters innocent pleas in boy’s death
YOUNGSTOWN — The mother of a 14-year-old boy who police say was murdered by her boyfriend entered not guilty pleas at her arraignment Tuesday for the charges of three counts of manslaughter, three counts of endangering children and one count of obstructing justice.
Bail was set in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court at $200,000 for 32-year-old Shain Widdersheim of Creed Street in Struthers. Her boyfriend, 43-year-old Zaryl Bush, also of Creed Street, is charged with murder and other charges for the death of her son, Teddy Foltz, Jan. 27, after six days in the hospital with severe head trauma.
Police say Widdersheim hindered their investigation in Foltz’s death. Bush is in the Mahoning County Jail on $1 million bond and has a bond hearing set for Thursday.
