Judge finds teen guilty in beating death of elderly Niles woman

NILES, Ohio (WYTV) – The teen accused of killing an elderly woman in Niles pleaded no contest to the charges against him, and the judge found him guilty.

It’s been almost three years since 94-year-old Marie Belcastro was found murdered inside her Niles home.

Tuesday morning, the court was supposed to continue picking a jury for the trial against the now 18-year-old who was charged in connection with the crime. Instead, Jacob LaRosa entered his plea before a jury could be seated.

“These jurors were no-nonsense and weren’t gonna mess around,” Prosecutor Chris Becker said.

Judge Wyatt McKay found LaRosa guilty of the charges including aggravated murder, aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery and attempted rape — all in connection to the brutal beating death of his neighbor in March of 2015 when he was just 15 years old.

“This was just a horrific, horrific crime scene and a horrific bludgeoning of a woman that, by all accounts, was a wonderful woman. Certainly
