WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Another man involved in a shoot-out between two biker groups in Warren Township pleaded guilty to lesser charges.
Charles Dellapenna, III, pleaded guilty to complicity to involuntary manslaughter, complicity to felonious assault and carrying a concealed weapon.
Police said Dellapenna is a member of the group called Forever Two Wheelz (FTW), which was involved in a shooting with another biker group at Shorty’s Place in June of 2016.
Police said the two groups got into a fight during a bike run at the bar, leading to the shooting in the parking lot. Two members of the Brothers Regime — Moore and Robert Marto — were killed. Andrew Claypool and Walter Hughes were also hospitalized with injuries following the shooting.
Charges against Dellapenna were reduced as a result of his agreement to testify against the remaining defendant — David Bailes, Jr. — whose trial is scheduled to begin on Monday.
In June, co-defendant James Gardner pleaded guilty to complicity to involuntary manslaughter, complicity to felonious assault and other charges. He also agreed to testify against other members of the group.
