The suspect in the July 30 murder of a 29-year-old man in Kenmore was arrested Aug. 3.

Late that morning, members of the U.S. Marshal Service Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force found Charles Deel II, 24, of Barberton, hiding in a home in Scioto, Ohio, a town about an hour and a half southeast of Akron.

Police were called to the Kenmore Boulevard location around 10:30 July 30 and found the Woody Cisterna, 29, laying, riddled with bullet wounds, on a sidewalk. He was taken to Cleveland Clinic Akron General Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead.

Deel was quickly identified as a suspect, last seen fleeing the scene in a Chevy Tahoe. The vehicle was found parked at an abandoned house on Marion Place but Deel wasn’t there.

The Task Force eventually got word Deel was hiding in Scioto and moved in. After a brief standoff, he finally walked out and was arrested; a 9mm handgun was found at the scene.

    Hopefully, if he is found guilty he never is allowed back on the streets.
