Suspect in deadly Warren home invasion charged


WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – A man who police said accompanied another man to a deadly home invasion in Warren last month was indicted Thursday by a Trumbull County grand jury.

Peighton Bishop, 18, of Newton Falls, is facing charges of involuntary manslaughter, aggravated burglary and aggravated robbery. He is being held at the Trumbull County Jail on a $250,000 bond pending his arraignment Monday in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court.

Police said Bishop and another man, Trent Hall, 18, of Southington, broke into a house on Starlite Drive on Nov. 22. Investigators said they started to beat up the homeowner, Benjamin Talanca, using their fists, power drills and pieces of wood with screws in them. 

Talanca got out his gun and shot Hall, killing him. Police said he acted in self-defense and he knew the suspects.

Bishop is charged with involuntary manslaughter because police said he was involved in a crime that resulted in the death of another person.

Police said previously that Hall had two accomplices and one was a juvenile.
