Jason Howard, black hero racially cleanses his fambly of 4 & bonus kill 1, for a respectable African-American grand total of 5 !


Jason Howard angrily threw papers on the floor...Howard's lawyer said the 24-year-old considered all three children his, although the attorney believes only the youngest was Howard's biological child. (What a good lawyer. Our man Jason done da right ting by raisin' and killin' anudda man's chillun. As the old negro love song plaintively warbled between staccato piano chords: "That's how strong my love is...that's how strong my love is.")
All four victims had been shot.

“They had been there a while - days, maybe even longer than that,” sergeant

Eric Pilya said.

Police identified the victims as Jameila West, 28, and her daughter, Jamiere Erwin, 10, and sons Trever Williams, 6, and Jakia Howard, 3.

Suspect admits to killing
WARREN — With a defiant, pouting look on his face and his tattooed arms shackled at his waist, murder suspect Jason Howard threw the indictment sheets against him to the courtroom floor.

‘‘I’m guilty of all this!’’ Howard blurted out.

But the 24-year-old Warren man denied involvement with the quadruple killing in Columbus of his former girlfriend and her three children. Columbus police call him their only suspect.

‘‘My kids are dead! Find out who did that,’’ Howard told Trumbull County Common Pleas Judge John M. Stuard.

When Stuard advised Howard to not speak and to cooperate with his attorney, Anthony Consoldane, Howard shot back with ‘‘I don’t care!’’

The six-count indictment in three Warren shootings in the past week, one of them fatal, included charges of aggravated murder and attempted murder. County Assistant Prosecutor Chris Becker referred to it as
a ‘‘three-day crime spree’’
after telling news reporters
‘‘I don’t really care what his (Howard’s) attitude is like.’’

Stuard officially considered Howard’s appearance to include an innocent plea and he set a pretrial hearing for late Thursday morning.

The judge set bond at $2 million, while surviving family members of Philip A. Dally’s cried inside the courtroom and in the hallway before quickly leaving the courthouse.

Warren police went to a Kenilworth Avenue S.E. home on Wednesday afternoon, finding Howard, also known as ‘‘JK,’’ holed up in the home threatening to kill himself. He was wanted in the two shootings that occurred inside autos in Warren early Wednesday and on Saturday. He also was wanted for questioning in the shooting death of 24-year-old Dally, whose body was found Monday morning in a vacant lot on Front Street S.W.

Becker declined to confirm that Dally was killed over $130 he owed for a bicycle. Sgt. Jeff Cole, one of the lead police investigators, said detectives have gotten conflicting reports over the bike matter.

Besides the aggravated murder of Dally, indictments returned Friday against Howard show an attempted murder charge involving Dantai Young; and charges of felonious assault, aggravated robbery and kidnapping involving Mario Sowell. All the counts carry three-year firearm specifications.

In addition, Howard faces a charge of having weapons while prohibited because of a prior felony conviction. He served several months of a one-year prison sentence for domestic violence and violating a protection order for which he was convicted in October 2004. He was released early after being given credit for time served locally before sentencing.

The victim in the domestic violence case was Jameila West, Howard’s 27-year-old girlfriend who was found shot to death Wednesday inside her home in Columbus.

When relatives of West drove from Warren to the Columbus home after not hearing from her for several days, they found the bodies of Jameila and her daughter, 10-year-old Jamiere Irvin, covered with blankets in the basement, and the bodies of the two boys, Tre’vion Williams, 5, and Jakia Howard, 3, in an upstairs bedroom.

Police in Columbus said West was shot in the head and Jamiere was strangled. The two boys appeared to have been smothered, Franklin County Coroner Brad Lewis said.

West, a licensed nurse’s aide, had moved to Columbus a year ago for a fresh start and the chance to earn better wages, according to family members.

Columbus police said West last talked to her Warren family by telephone a week ago today. They said the timeline fits with the Warren shootings to consider Howard a suspect.

Last Saturday, Mario D. Sowell was taken to Forum Health Trumbull Memorial Hospital about 4 a.m. with a gunshot to the right side of his abdomen, a report states.

Police said the man to whom Sowell was giving a ride, pulled a gun and demanded money. The man made Sowell pull into a Southwest Park on Palmyra Road S.W., where Sowell was forced to the ground and shot in the right side of his abdomen. Sowell was shot once, but police found two .40-caliber shells at the park, police said.

Dally’s body was found about 10 a.m. Monday. His mother told police she last saw him about 2 a.m. Monday, which is about 30 minutes before police believe the shooting happened.

The third shooting was about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday inside a car that was near Mahoning Avenue N.W. and Summit Street N.W. The police report states 26-year-old Dontai R. Young of Lane Drive S.W. was riding in a car with a woman and a man he knows, identified as Howard, when the man shot Young in the arm. Police said the two had gotten into some sort of argument, which spurred the shooting.
Howard was in court Friday on a charge of aggravated murder in the shooting of Philip Dally, whose body was found in Warren on Monday. He also was accused of aggravated robbery, attempted murder and other charges in the shootings of two other men injured in the last week.

One of the injured men was shot in the back in a public park on Saturday, and the other was shot in the arm on a street outside several bars on Wednesday, Warren police said. Howard surrendered to police on Wednesday after barricading himself in a Warren home for an hour.
