Ohio baby stabbed in neck, father charged with murder


CAMPBELL, OH (WKBN) – Police say a 1-year-old baby was stabbed in the neck and killed near Youngstown.

They’ve taken the father, 29-year-old Marc Flora, into custody on a murder charge. 

Campbell Police Lt. Kevin Sferra said Flora was home alone with his two kids. The other child was unharmed, sleeping in the other room when investigators arrived. 

Flora called police soon after the child had been stabbed. 

He told police that he blacked out and when he came to, the baby was dead, Sferra said. 

Police said they believe that the mother of the children was at work. 

Sferra said officers were called to the same home about two months ago for a domestic call. 

Flora’s bond was set at $500,000.
