  Boyd Indicted In Shooting Death Of Weisensee  
  May 21, 2020 Edition  
     19-year-old Emanuel Robert Boyd, of 5515 West Blvd., has been indicted by a Mahoning County Grand Jury on seven counts, including involuntary manslaughter, in the Feb. 13 shooting death of his friend, 18-year-old Kane Joseph Weisensee, at Boyd’s home.
      Boyd has been lodged in the Mahoning County Jail since the shooting.
      Shortly after midnight on Feb. 13, Wiesensee’s girlfriend, Sienna Holstein, told police that Boyd shot Wiesensee.
      “Manny (Emanuel Boyd) had this gun and was playing with it” when it discharged, Holstein told police. She said she believed the shooting was an accident.
      Police believe the gun used in the shooting had been stolen during a burglary at a Lockwood Blvd. home on Feb. 9.
      Boyd’s indictment includes a firearm specification that carries a mandatory three-year conviction.
      Boyd was also indicted on charges of burglary, having weapons under a disability, tampering with evidence, grand theft of a firearm, receiving stolen property and falsification.
      Weisensee died of a single gunshot wound to the chest on Feb. 13, according to police reports.
      At the time of the shooting, Boyd told police he and Weisensee were walking along West Blvd. when someone in a black vehicle pulled along side them and shot Weisensee.
      Ptl. Joseph O’Grady said he could not find footprints, or blood in the snow, that could corroborate Boyd’s claim.
      Officer O’Grady said Holstein told him that she was “sleeping on the couch in the living room and heard a loud bang. She awoke to find Weisensee stumbling in and saying he was shot in the chest.”
      Interviewed by police about two hours after the shooting, Holstein told Det. Greg Stepuk “Kane and I were sitting on the couch. I was sitting on his lap. Manny was sitting on the couch next to use.
      “I was facing Kane, talking to him, I heard a loud noise.
      “I looked over at Manny and saw smoke. Kane started screaming ‘call 9-1-1.’
      “Kane collapsed by the couch.”
