AKRON, Ohio — A jury has convicted an Akron resident accused of fatally shooting a 22-year-old man who was involved in a relationship with the mother of his children.
Jovonta Moore, 23, was found guilty of murder and two counts of felonious assault, according to the Summit County Prosecutor's Office.
On March 31, Moore shot and killed 22-year-old Kaleem Primm outside a home on East Mapledale Avenue near Sweitzer Avenue, authorities said.
Moore was at the home when Primm arrived. According to the prosecutor's office, Primm was in a relationship with the mother of Moore's children.
