STOW: A Macedonia man accused of stabbing his father to death and wounding his mother over the Memorial Day weekend has a history of mental illness and domestic violence involving his parents, court records show.

Michael A. Clark, 28, was arraigned Tuesday in Stow Municipal Court on a charge of first-degree murder. Judge Lisa Coates set his bond at $1 million cash and a preliminary hearing was scheduled for 9 a.m. Monday.

He is being held at the Summit County Jail in Akron.

Authorities have accused Clark of stabbing his father, Joseph Clark, 62, and wounding his mother, Audrey Roberson, 58, early Monday at their home on Griswold Circle. Court records say the father was stabbed in the chest, while the mother had a stab wound to the chest and the right side of her face was swollen, completely closing the right eye.

Macedonia police responded to their home after 7 a.m. following a 911 call and found the couple in their bedroom, where the door appeared to be forced open.

Roberson was sitting on the bed with an oxygen mask over her face, while Joseph Clark was on the floor covered in blood, an incident report says.

A “silver folding knife” was recovered at the scene.

Michael Clark was later located by the State Highway Patrol in Columbiana County.

Macedonia police Lt. Vince Yakopovich declined to say Tuesday what precipitated the stabbing, saying authorities are still investigating. He did not know the suspect’s mental diagnosis.

Court records show that Michael Clark had been found guilty of domestic violence in 2011, 2014 and 2016.

His first domestic violence case, stemming from a 2010 incident, was handled through the mental health court known as STRIDE (Successful Treatment Results in Developing Excellence). His sentence included time at Oriana House’s Special Housing Adjustment Residential Program (SHARP), which serves clients with mental health issues who have a criminal conviction.

Michael Clark originally was placed on probation, but ended up serving time in jail because he failed to follow through with the terms of the probation, according to court records.

Details about the 2010 and 2016 arrests weren’t immediately available.

A Macedonia police report from 2014 says Michael Clark was charged with domestic violence after he and his father got into an argument over using a car.

Michael Clark put his father in a chokehold and later tried to choke him with his hands.

Roberson’s statement to police indicated he was upset after she threw out some meat that he cooked that didn’t smell right.

“Michael has a history of mental illness,” the police report says. “Joseph stated that Michael’s mental state has not been under control or well managed with his medication. They are still seeking medical help.”

Court records from the 2014 case show he was living in a group home and was involved with Akron-based Community Support Services, which helps people with mental health and behavioral problems. The records also show he was taking prescribed medication, but do not state which medication or why he was taking it.

Michael Clark had pleaded guilty to the 2014 domestic violence charge in Summit County Common Pleas Court and was sentenced to 24 months’ probation. A temporary protection order also was filed on behalf of Joseph Clark.
