    Death Penalty Pursued for Kimonie Bryant in 2020 OH Slaying of Four-Year-Old Rowan Sweeney


    Rowan Sweeney





    BREAKING | Alleged Struthers shooter could get death penalty

    Prosecutors on Thursday suggested Kimonie Bryant killed a 4-year-old boy and shot several others in a hail of gunfire all for $5,000 in Pandemic Unemployment Assistance cash that belonged to one of the victims

    By Mahoning Matters Staff

    YOUNGSTOWN A Mahoning County grand jury has indicted Kimonie Bryant on several aggravated murder charges in the shooting death of 4-year-old Rowan Sweeney.

    If convicted on any of his four counts of aggravated murder, each of which include death specifications, Bryant, 24, of Struthers, would be eligible for the death penalty, Mahoning County Prosecutor Paul Gains said during a press conference this afternoon.

    "I'd say the killing of a 4-year-old deserves a penalty consistent with that kind of heinous offense," he said.

    Sweeney was asleep on his mother's lap just before 2 a.m. Sept. 21, when Bryant allegedly barged into the living room of the home at 111 Perry St. and began shooting all the occupants, Gains said.

    Prosecutors claim Bryant first shot Andre McCoy, 20, who was seated on a couch next to the entrance of the home. He then allegedly shot Yarnell Green, 30, a resident of the home, as he attempted to flee, then several more times as Green lay on the floor. Bryant then allegedly shot Cassandra Marsicola, 20, who was also in the living room.

    Bryant then shot Sweeney's mother, Alexis Schneider, 22, who was living with Green. She had Sweeney in her lap while sitting on a couch across from the others, Gains said.

    Sweeney was shot twice in the head and was killed, Gains said. Schneider sustained gunshot wounds to her left collar bone and breast area.

    Prosecutors' Thursday press conference suggested Bryant was after $5,000 in Pandemic Unemployment Assistance funds that, at the time, was on a coffee table between the victims. The money belonged to Green, who was a self-employed barber, Gains said.

    "When the police arrived, the victims were there but no cash was on the coffee table," Gains said.

    Bryant faces a total of 14 felony charges, including: four counts of aggravated murder with death specifications; four counts of attempted murder; four counts of felonious assault; and single counts of aggravated burglary and aggravated robbery. All of the charges carry firearm specifications, which would result in additional, mandatory three-year sentences.

    Bryant's charges include certain specifications for prior calculation of the murder, causing the death of a child under the age of 13 and mass murder the intent to kill two or more people among others, Gains said.

    Those certain specifications on Bryant's four aggravated murder charges, if convicted, would qualify him for the death penalty.

    All the other victims are expected to recover from their wounds, he added.

    Bryant turned himself in later that day. He remains in the Mahoning County Jail without bond. He will not plead on the charges until he appears in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court.

    STRUTHERS, Ohio (WKBN) A private funeral Tuesday is remembering 4-year-old Rowan Sweeney.

    His calling hours were Monday.

    Rowan was one of five people shot two weeks ago.

    Tuesday morning, the man accused of killing him was in court.

    Kimonie Bryant made his first appearance in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court after being indicted on 14 counts last week in the shooting death of Rowan Sweeney and the shooting of four others inside the house where the little boy and his mother lived.

    Of the counts against Bryant are several specifications that could bring the death penalty if hes convicted.

    After Tuesday mornings hearing, Mahoning County Prosecutor Paul Gains said he and his staff will do all they can to ensure a conviction and what he calls justice for Rowan.

    Its affected the entire community. You cant find a more innocent victim than a young child and thats why everybodys taken this so seriously, Gains said.

    Bryant remains in jail without bond. His attorney agreed to hold off on requesting a bond and may bring it up later with Judge John Durkin, who will hear the trial.

    Bryant gets 2nd attorney in capital case

    Accused in shooting of Struthers 4-year-old

    By Ed Runyan
    Youngstown Vindicator

    YOUNGSTOWN Kimonie Bryant had his first hearing Friday in front of the Mahoning County Common Pleas Court judge who will hear his aggravated murder case.

    Bryant during the proceeding waived his right to a speedy jury trial. It means his Nov. 30 trial will be reset, though no new hearing or trial dates were available late Friday.

    Bryant, 24, of Struthers, is charged in the Sept. 21 shooting death of Rowan Sweeney, 4, in the home on Perry Street in Struthers where Rowan lived with his mother, Alexis Schneider, 22.

    Bryant is accused of shooting Andre McCoy, 20, and Yarnell Green Jr., 30, shortly after entering the home at about 2 a.m., then approaching the boy, who was on a couch with his mother, Alexis Schneider, 22. He was asleep when Bryant entered the home, prosecutors said, but its not known whether he was awake when he was shot.

    Police have said Rowans mother covered Rowan and begged Bryant not to shoot him, but Bryant did. Bryant also is accused of shooting Schneider and Cassandra Marsicola.

    Bryants charges make him eligible for the death penalty if he is convicted of aggravated murder and certain specifications. Because of that, Judge John Durkin appointed a second attorney, Lynn Maro, to represent Bryant.

    Attorney John Juhasz was appointed earlier to represent Bryant.

    Various notifications about the case and appointments have been sent to the Ohio Supreme Court.

    Bryant remains in the Mahoning County jail without eligibility to make bond. There was no discussion during Fridays hearing on whether his attorneys will ask Durkin to set bond.

    In addition to the charges related to Rowans death, Bryant also was indicted on four counts of attempted murder and four counts of felonious assault in the shootings of the four adults.

    A sizable number of people attended Fridays hearing.
