Another Cop Charged for Death Threats


1 comment
It appears that Solon sergeant Andrew Kolcinko isn't the only local cop who's been threatening to kill his significant other. While Kolcinko awaits his trial in Garfield Heights for threatening to kill his ex-girlfriend, an Akron cop awaits his own date in court for doing the same. In January, Leslie Jones allegedly chased his wife around their house with a knife, threatening to kill her. When she tried to call the police, he disconnected the phones. But it appears that Jones' wife eventually reached 911. This week, Jones appeared in a Summit County courtroom, where he was indicted on five different charges, including domestic violence. He was also placed on leave. -- Denise Grollmus
