Sentence upheld in Warren killing

WARREN — The 11th District Court of Appeals has upheld the sentencing of Arteum P. Brodeur to eight years in prison for killing another man along North Park Avenue near downtown in July 2017.

Brodeur, now 26, who was born in Russia, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in March 2018 in the stabbing death of Michael J. Krevas, 31, of Harmon Avenue NE.

Prosecutors said Brodeur confronted Krevas after Krevas went to Brodeur’s apartment in the 400 block of North Park. Krevas was apparently angry about his girlfriend, who was inside Brodeur’s apartment. The fight ensued after Krevas threw a brick through the windshield of Brodeur’s pickup truck.

At sentencing, Judge W. Wyatt McKay of Trumbull County Common Pleas Court said Brodeur “had a very rough life” but “made some wrong decisions in this case.”
