Incoming wrist slap! Akron men arrested for beating teenager to death have murder charges reduced


On June 2nd, Ethan Liming was beaten to death outside a school in Akron, Ohio. Deshawn Stafford Jr., 20, Tyler Stafford, 19, and Donovon Jones, 21, were arrested and charged with murder.

The trio is already being pampered by the system. Prosecutors have dropped murder charges against all three, citing the results of a grand jury hearing. Critics of grand jury hearings say these proceedings are little more than theatrical because prosecutors control the outcome by controlling what evidence is allowed. 

The trio have been indicted on new lesser charges.

Deshawn Stafford: Two counts of involuntary manslaughter, aggravated assault and assault

Tyler Stafford: Involuntary manslaughter and assault

Donovon Jones: Two counts of assault

Local media have downplayed the beating death as “a fight.”
