Akron, OH – Sonny Howard, 26, plead guilty to killing a man he thought was somebody else in January of 2019, and he was sentenced to life in prison (with the possibility of parole after 16 years) immediately following his plea.
He was charged with a felony murder with a gun specification for killing Daniel Jones, 38. The murder happened on the 900 block of Clark St. near Inman St. on the east side of Akron. Howard did not know him, and mistook him for somebody else, and shot him in the chest.
Such a senseless killing! Prayers to the family of the suspect and everybody else involved.
