WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Warren man is in the Trumbull County Jail after he called 911 to report a man was dead in his house.
Theodore Baiduc, III, pleaded not guilty to felony charges of tampering with evidence and obstructing justice Thursday in Warren Municipal Court.
A judge found him to be a flight risk and ordered Baiduc to be held without bond.
Police responded to Baiduc’s home in the 3700 block of Tod Avenue NW at around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday for a man who wasn’t breathing.
When they arrived, they found Peter Kleiner, of Ravenna, had passed away.
Police say Baiduc was taken into custody at the scene.
Baiduc himself was the one who called 911.
An autopsy on Kleiner was scheduled for Friday.
Investigators say additional charges are pending the results of an autopsy and toxicology reports.
