A 24-year old Akron man who shot and killed his abusive father 11 years ago at the age of 13, will now be going to prison for another crime.

Aaron Stitt, of Brown Street in Akron, pleaded guilty to felony charges of aggravated burglary, domestic violence, and violating a protection order.

Summit County Common Pleas Court Judge Paul Gallagher sentenced Stitt to seven years in prison. Stitt climbed through the window of his victim’s home and assaulted her early one morning in November. The woman, who has a child with Stitt, had a civil protection order against Stitt.

Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh comments on Aaron Stitts sentencing.  

 In 2001 Stitt shot and killed his father after years of abuse. Stitt admitted to a charge of voluntary manslaughter in Juvenile Court and spent approximately 2 ½ years in a Department of Youth Services facility.
