WARREN: Arrested July 9 - Arteum Brodeur, 24, charged with murder


WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – The man accused in the July 8 stabbing that killed 31-year-old Michael Krevas appeared in the Trumbull County Court of Common Pleas for his arraignment on Friday.

Arteum Brodeur, 24, is being held on a $1 million bond after entering a not guilty plea to his charges, including two counts of murder and one count of tampering with evidence.

He’s accused of stabbing Krevas in a parking lot off of North Park Avenue in Warren on Saturday night. Witnesses said they saw the two men fighting there.

Krevas died from his injuries.

Assistant Prosecutor Chris Becker said although Brodeur is charged with two counts of murder, if he’s convicted, he can only be sentenced for one. Each murder charge has a different theory on what happened leading up to Krevas’ death.

“One is that the murder occurred as a proximate result of him committing a felony offense of violence. The other is that he committed the murder purposely, causing the death of another, which is straight murder,” Becker said.

If convicted, Brodeur faces life in prison with parole eligibility after 15 years.

He is due back in court for a pretrial in two weeks.
