WARREN, Ohio (WKBN)- A man accused in the murder of a Warren woman pleaded not guilty at his arraignment Tuesday in Warren Municipal Court.
Antuan Parker, 43, is charged in the shooting death of 32-year-old Desirae Boss.
Boss was found Oct. 2 in the woods near Choctaw Avenue SW with a gunshot wound to the head.
Parker was arrested just before 7 p.m. Monday on Pine Avenue SE. Police say they stopped Parker in a GMC Arcadia after recognizing him as the suspect in a murder warrant. Police say two small children in the vehicle were turned over to their mother.
Boss’s aunt, Alesia Code, said she is relieved knowing Parker is now facing charges in connection to her niece’s death.
“We always said it was him from the beginning. It’s a prayer that has been answered. It didn’t take long. Warren PD – it didn’t take long. I am ecstatic,” Code said.
Parker is being held without bond in the Trumbull County Jail. He is due back in court Monday.
