Tue., 10:21am: Arraignment today in fatal Bristol stabbing

NEWTON FALLS — A man accused of fatally stabbing a Bristol man last Thursday at a Trumbull County bar is scheduled to be arraigned today in municipal court.

William J. Helmuth, 45, also of Bristol, is facing a murder charge in connection with the death of Craig Neighbor, 41 at the Bristol Inn Bar at 6233 state Route 45, at the intersection of state Route 88.

The Trumbull County Coroner’s Office ruled Neighbor’s death a homicide and that he died from multiple stab wounds.

Reports state there was an argument between the two men that ended with Neighbor’s death.

Helmuth left the bar after the stabbing and was apprehended later, according to reports. He has remained at the Trumbull County Jail since.
