Slain dog may be key to solving double homicide at Cleveland auto dealer
updated April 21, 2017 at 6:37 PM

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Robbers who killed the owners of a car dealership on the city's East Side stole surveillance equipment, killed the woman as she tried to run out of a back door and shot the family dog, Cleveland police said at a press conference Friday.

Deputy Cleveland Police Chief Ed Tomba said that investigators believe the business was targeted, meaning the incident that left Michael Kuznik and Trina Tomola dead was more calculated than just a random robbery and car theft.

The family dog, Axel, might provide clues as investigators believe that it might have bitten one of the robbers, and its mouth might contain his or her DNA.

I knew this one would turn out to be a black guy if anyone was ever arrested.

Joseph McAlpin sentenced to death for murdering couple during robbery at Cleveland car dealership; appeal expected




Updated May 21 at 2:05 PM

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The man convicted of killing a couple who owned a car dealership in Cleveland was sentenced to death by Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas Judge Brian Corrigan on Tuesday.



Joseph McAlpin was sentenced for 10 charges, including two counts of aggravated murder, stemming from the deadly robbery in April of 2017.

On May 16, the jury assigned to McAlpin’s trial deliberated for approximately 30 minutes before recommending the death sentence as punishment. Judge Corrigan honored the jury’s recommendation by finding capital punishment fit for McAlpin’s crimes.

After learning his fate, McAlpin indicated that he intends to appeal the death sentencing. A panel of judges will now be appointed to hear McAlpin’s appeal.

McAlpin was convicted in April of killing Trina Tomola, Michael Kuznik, and their dog at the married couple’s car dealership, Mr. Cars, on East 185th Street in 2017. The couple’s son found their bodies later that evening.

Several cars and cash were also stolen.

McAlpin represented himself throughout the trial, which began on March 18.
