A cross was burned in the yard of a Smith County man after what his family is referring to as a vicious hate crime occurred. Family members say that Craig Wilson was beaten with brass knuckles and shotMore >>
A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
One of the five suspects
involved in the murder of south Toledo gym owner Joe Lengel has pleaded guilty.
His case has revealed more information about the crime.
Matthew Managhan admitted
to helping arrange a robbery in November but didn't pull the trigger, according
to court documents. He has now pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter, but
according to the prosecution and the defense, Lengel was never the intended
In court, Managhan told
his lawyer Sam Kaplan that he and the other suspects wanted to rob someone
thought to have cash and drugs at an auto shop, but instead, they stole an iPad
from Lengel and killed him with a single gunshot outside of the gym he owned
next door to the auto shop.
Security footage from
Marlinda Jones' store nearby caught it on camera.
"First off, my heart goes
out to the family," said Jones, owner of Lost Treasures. "I was really, truly
hurt that he was the wrong victim."
Since November, security
on Warehouse Road has dramatically increased, and shop owners are starting to
feel safe again.
"Since this has happened
to Joe, everyone has beefed-up security around here. I mean, there's three more
facilities around here that installed cameras," Jones said.
Of the four men in custody
for the crime, Managhan is the first to take a plea. Police are still looking
for one more man charged with the murder, Deitrekk Boone.
"There is a nationwide
pick-up radius for him," said Sgt. Joe Heffernan with TPD. "I know we are
working with the US Marshals office right now, trying to track him down, so my
hope is that we'll be getting him in custody here before too long."
Anyone with clues to Boone's
whereabouts is asked to contact authorities immediately.
