Cousin of Slain Parma Teen Charged With Reckless Homicide

Posted By on Thu, May 14, 2015 at 3:10 PM


A 28-year-old Trumbull County man has been charged for the shooting death of his cousin, 15-year-old Parma resident Jesse Hayes.

Thomas Catalde, Jr., of Leavittsburg, was charged by the Warren Township Police Department with reckless homicide. He shot him in the face with a 12-gauge shotgun on Saturday night and the child died in the hospital on Monday. Police chief Don Bishop said on Tuesday that "the 28-year-old cousin told police he had been talking with Jesse about hunting and had a few beers," the AP wrote, "He was showing the boy a new shotgun when he pointed it at Jesse and pulled the trigger. He told police he didn't think it was loaded."

This is not Catalde's first run-in with the law. Earlier this year, he was charged with felony aggravated vehicular assault, endangering children, and driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. The Youngstown Vindicator reported he got into an argument with his friend, then hit him with his car while his daughter was inside.
