New charges push back sentencing for Mosey Inn stabbings

By Jonathan Delozier -



Sentencing of a man who stabbed two people outside of Wellington’s Mosey Inn has been pushed back to June 26 after new charges were filed against him.

Jeremiah Donovan of Elyria was found guilty April 21 on counts of attempted murder, felonious assault, and simple assault stemming from a stabbing on Dec. 28, 2015.

Wellington police responded at 1:22 a.m. to the Mosey Inn, where Donovan stabbed Theresa Graham and Bradley Estep of Wellington after Estep had intervened in a physical confrontation outside the bar between Donovan and Graham.

Graham was treated at the scene for a severe cut and Estep was taken by helicopter to MetroHealth Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. She was reported to be in good condition later that week.

Donovan fled the scene on foot. Tracking his cell phone signal, sheriff’s deputies quickly found him near the intersection of routes 58 and 303.

Deputies also charged Alisha Bizorik of Wellington at the scene with disorderly conduct and failing to obey the order of law enforcement officers.

After initially pleading not guilty to those charges, a plea bargain led to her being found guilty of disorderly conduct on June 2, 2016.

Donovan was set to be sentenced June 12. But seven days before the court date he was arrested in Stark County and charged with felony menacing by stalking and telephone, a violation of court supervised release terms.
