Local News

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Police say a man is in custody, accused of shooting and killing the mother of his child at an apartment complex in Austintown.

Steve Green, III, was booked into the Mahoning County Jail Saturday morning on a charge of aggravated, premeditated murder.

Police said officers were called at the Compass West Apartments on Compass West Drive just after 10:30 p.m. Friday after a woman called to ask for help in a domestic situation. As she was on the phone with dispatchers, gunshots and screaming could be heard.

Investigators said officers arrived to find the woman shot several times in the back, though Green had left before they got there.

Police say the victim was visiting a friend at the apartment complex at the time and that she did not live there.

Green eventually drove to the Austintown Police Department to turn himself in.

The victim, a 25-year-old woman, and Green have a child together, according to investigators. The child was not there at the time and is now with another family member.

Police say they have a long history of domestic issues.

The identity of the victim hasn’t been released yet.

Green is expected to appear in court on the charge next week.
