Missouri Man Pleads Guilty To Akron Murder

Akron - Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh announced today that Jarvell Henderson, 27, of Everton Drive in Akron, pled guilty to several charges, including shooting 59-year-old David Dzatko to death outside of an Akron convenience store last December.

Summit County Common Pleas Court Judge Tammy O’Brien immediately sentenced Henderson to Life In Prison. Henderson will be eligible for parole after serving 35 years of his sentence.

Henderson pled guilty to the following charges:

  • Murder with a Gun Specification – a special felony
  • Aggravated Robbery with a Gun Specification – a felony of the 1st degree
  • Felonious Assault with a Gun Specification – a felony of the 2nd degree

Around noon on December 26, 2017, Henderson fired several shots at another person at an Akron area gas station. The person ran off and was not injured. Four hours later, Henderson robbed the clerk at Luei’s Convenience store on Hammel Street. While leaving the store, Henderson shot and killed 59-year-old David Dzatko. Mr. Dzatko was shopping at the store, confronted Henderson and attempted to pepper spray him.

Investigators arrested Henderson after finding his ID in the store and after reviewing video surveillance from the convenience store and gas station.

Henderson was released from a Missouri prison in March of 2017 after serving ten years for armed robbery.
