The man charged with fatally shooting his neighbor Tuesday in a Knox Township mobile home park will be held in the county jail on $1 million bond until his murder case is over.
Frank Gorichky, 53, entered no plea Friday at his initial appearance in Columbiana County Municipal Court. A preliminary hearing was scheduled for next Friday.
Neighbors described the two men as “drinking buddies” who were friends that would occasionally raise their voice.
Police said a witness was inside the home when the shooting happened and has been interviewed by investigators.
Gorisky, according to a search of court records, was convicted of burglary and violating a protection order in 2006. He was sentenced to nine months in prison.
Fisher also had a criminal history involving numerous misdemeanor charges spanning from 1997 through 2011. Charges included domestic violence, receiving stolen property, assault and drug possession.
