WARREN - A 19-year-old Ravenna man was arrested Monday at 956 Maryland St. N.W. on charges of aggravated murder, according to the U.S. Marshals Service.
William D. Butcher, 19, 211 W. Harris St., Ravenna, was arrested on a warrant issued by the Ravenna Police Department in connection to an April 18 murder. The warrant was filed May 7.
The U.S. Marshal's Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Taskforce made the arrest.
"We received a tip that Butcher may be in Warren," Bill Boldin, a deputy with the U.S. Marshals office, said. "We had the house under surveillance. Once we confirmed he was in the house, we made the arrest."
Butcher was arrested without incident, according to Boldin, who also said a.44-caliber gun was found near where the suspect was located.
Boldin did not have any details on the incident for which Butcher had a warrant, however, a complaint filed Friday by Ravenna police Detective Greg Francis in Portage County Municipal Court claims Butcher "purposely caused the death of Clifford Cummings" on April 18 while committing or attempting to commit aggravated robbery.
Efforts to obtain more information from the Ravenna Police Department were not successful Monday evening.
Butcher was taken to Trumbull County Jail and then transferred to the Portage County Jail.
