Man sen­tenced to life for killing former girl­friend

The Columbus Dispatch - - Metro&state - By Marc Ko­vac mko­vac@dis­ @ohiocap­i­talblog

A Colum­bus man ad­mit­ted Tues­day that he killed his ex-girl­friend in a West Side park­ing lot more than a year ago.

Danny Fabro, 55, pleaded guilty to one count of mur­der with a gun spec­i­fi­ca­tion and was sen­tenced to life in prison by Franklin County Com­mon Pleas Judge Charles Sch­nei­der.

With the gun spec­i­fi­ca­tion, Fabro will be el­i­gi­ble for pa­role af­ter 18 years. Counts of ag­gra­vated mur­der, fail­ure to com­ply and im­proper han­dling of a firearm were dropped as part of a plea agree­ment.

Fabro shot Joyce Fox, 56, in the head early on Feb. 17, 2017, in the park­ing lot of a UPS dis­tri­bu­tion cen­ter on Trabue Road, where she worked. Po­lice said the re­la­tion­ship be­tween them had ended a few months ear­lier.

Fabro fled the scene, but his pickup truck was later stopped by of­fi­cers near the in­ter­sec­tion of West Broad Street and North Wil­son Road on the west side. Dur­ing a sub­se­quent stand­off, he shot him­self in the head.

Fabro was charged with mur­der at the time, but the case was in­ac­tive for months while he re­cov­ered in the hospi­tal.
