ELYRIA — Two Lorain men have been indicted on murder charges in connection to a New Year’s Day killing.
Marlon Johnson, 42, faces three counts of aggravated murder, three counts of murder, two counts of aggravated burglary, unlawful use of a weapon by a violent career criminal, two counts of felonious assault and two counts of having weapons while under disability, according to a Lorain County grand jury indictment released Thursday.
Tywan Perry, 38, was indicted on a count of murder, two counts of aggravated burglary, a count of intimidation of an attorney, victim or witness in a criminal case, tampering with evidence and two counts of having weapons under disability.
Most of the charges in Johnson’s indictment also have added specifications saying he is a violent career criminal, had a firearm on him while committing the offense and that he is a repeat violent offender. Many of Perry’s charges also include firearm and repeat violent offender specifications, as well.
Police say Johnson shot and killed Todd Dais, 45, on Jan. 1 at 807 W. 22nd St. about 5:38 a.m. Lorain police received a 911 call reporting shots fired at the residence and arrived to find Dais’ body.
Lorain County Prosecutor Dennis Will said Perry acted in concert with Johnson in the killing. Will also said the burglary charges stemmed from the fact police believe the two came to the residence to either take some items or commit a theft.
