EUCLID, Ohio — A man accused of killing his mother’s 33-year-old boyfriend at his home in Euclid was arraigned in court Thursday and is being held on a $1 million bond.

Jacquise J. Drewery, 21, has been charged with murder in connection with the death of Theodore Hester.

Police responded to a residence in the 25000 block of Marsdon Avenue after receiving a 911 call around 2 a.m. Wednesday from a woman who said her “son shot her boyfriend multiple times.”

Drewery’s mother told police that her son and boyfriend were “tussling in the kitchen and she walked away,” only to hear gunshots a moment later.

Authorities said that Drewery fled the crime scene but was arrested later Wednesday morning by Euclid police, East Cleveland police and the U.S. Marshals Northern Violent Fugitive Task Force in the 13800 block of Strathmore Avenue in East Cleveland.

Drewery’s next court date has not been listed.
