Accused baby killer back behind bars in Ashtabula, could face death penalty

A Conneaut man accused of raping and killing a 13-month-old girl has been extradited back to OH, where he could face the death penalty, prosecutors said.

Joshua Gurto, 37, was indicted on two counts of aggravated murder, three counts of murder, one count of rape, one count of felonious assault and one count of domestic violence. Each aggravated murder charge carries a death penalty specification, court records show.

Gurto is charged in connection with the October 7 rape and murder of 13-month-old Sereniti Jazzlynn-Sky Sutley in Conneaut. The girl died from blunt trauma to her head and trunk, according to the Ashtabula County coroner's office. He was charged on October 13. Authorities believe he had been hiding out in the area's woods for several days.

He was brought back to Ashtabula County Thursday morning and is being held in the jail.

Arrangements will be made to keep Gurto away from other inmates during his incarceration in the county jail, Sheriff William Johnson said last week.

Plenty of agencies and individuals deserve credit for their role in the case, Iarocci said in the statement.

The Conneaut Law Director's Office filed charges and obtained an arrest warrant for Gurto in Sereniti's murder and rape.

A Pennsylvania police officer immediately recognized Gurto at the Sheetz gas station.
