A Summit County Grand Jury has decided against charges for 69-year-old Anthony Demchak of Twinsburg in the death of his wife, Marilyn.
Back on October 25th, 2017, Anthony Demchak called 911 to report his wife unresponsive on the floor of their bedroom. He told emergency dispatch that he thought she'd fallen and that she was bleeding and not answering him.
When police and EMS arrived, they found Marilyn Demchak on the floor, unresponsive, with trauma to the back of her head. After a brief investigation, Anthony Demchak was arrested and charged with murder, felonious assault, involuntary manslaughter, and reckless homicide.
Police had been called to the Demchak home in Twinsburg before on domestic violence reports after neighbors had reported instances of Anthony Demchak threatening, even hitting or knocking down Marilyn. One report claimed that Demchak had threatened to punch his wife in the face if she left the garage to come back in the house. The most recent incident, before the October 25th call, was July of last year.
After months, the Summit County Medical Examiner's Office found that the cause of Marilyn Demchak's death could not be determined, and the grand jury dropped all charges against Anthony. He has since been released from custody.
