Tue., 9:16am: Jury considering murder charge against Youngstown man

JEFFERSON — Youngstown man John Drummond Jr.’s fate is in the hands of an Ashtabula County jury, which begins its second day of deliberations today in his murder trial.

Drummond is charged with the 1997 shooting death of Ronald “Maceo” Hull in Ashtabula.

Four others — George Church, Jawann Evans, Eric Weaver and Stephen Boles — were all charged with kidnapping and murder in January. The murder charges were dropped in exchange for testifying against Drummon. All four pleaded guilty to kidnapping.
