This week in court, sentencings are scheduled in three Summit County cases involving people who met violent ends by different means — one struck by a car, another stabbed and a third shot.

Here’s more about these cases:

Woman sentenced for boyfriend’s death

Gloria Lee, 49, of Akron, pleaded guilty last month to aggravated vehicular homicide, a second-degree felony, and operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol, a first-degree misdemeanor.

Prosecutors say Lee was driving drunk and going about 40 mph on Easter Avenue on May 16, 2017, when her boyfriend, Darrone Jones, saw her and started down the road toward her. They see Lee sped up and hit Jones while he was walking on the opposite side of the road. Jones flew up on the car and landed on the street.

Jones, 57, died after paramedics took him to Cleveland Clinic Akron General.

Lee’s blood-alcohol content was 0.198, more than twice the legal limit for driving, police said.

Lee will be sentenced at 3 p.m. Monday by Summit County Common Pleas Judge Christine Croce.

She is represented by attorney Walter Madison.

Man sentenced fatally stabbing mother

Michael Gleisinger, 49, of Akron, pleaded guilty last month to reduced charges of involuntary manslaughter and failure to provide for a functionally impaired person.

Police said Gleisinger stabbed his mother in the chest and abdomen May 16, 2017, in the kitchen of their Goodyear Heights home. Nancy Gleisinger, 76, was taken to Summa Akron City Hospital, where she later died.

Earl Gleisinger, Nancy’s husband of 58 years, witnessed the incident, police said.

Prosecutors said Nancy Gleisinger suffered from Alzheimer’s disease and her son was her full-time caregiver. Michael Gleisinger suffered from mental health issues for much of his life.

Michael Gleisinger was originally charged with murder and felonious assault and pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. He was ruled mentally unfit to stand trial and was confined last November to Northcoast Behavioral Healthcare System in Northfield. Doctors recently deemed him competent to stand trial.

Gleisinger will be sentenced at 1 p.m. Tuesday by Summit County Common Pleas Judge Alison Breaux.

Jeff Laybourne, Gleisinger’s attorney, is arguing for his client to receive probation and mental health treatment rather than prison time. This is supported by Gleisinger’s father and siblings, who have promised to provide him a place to live and assure he receives treatment, according to court records.

Man sentenced for shooting death

Darshawn McCormick, 27, of Akron, was convicted last month by a Summit County jury in the shooting death of another young man.

The jury found McCormick guilty of murder, felonious assault and having weapons under disability, which means he was prohibited from having a firearm because of a previous conviction. The murder and felonious assault charges included gun specifications.

Police said McCormick shot Javanta Virden, 25, in the head Dec. 26, 2016, in an Ericsson Avenue parking lot. Virden was transported to Summa Akron City Hospital, where he later died.

McCormick was charged with Virden’s death in January 2017. At the time, he already was in the Summit County Jail on unrelated charges, including aggravated robbery and felonious assault.

McCormick is scheduled to be sentenced at 1 p.m. Tuesday by Summit County Common Pleas Judge Jay Wells.

McCormick is represented by attorneys Kani Hightower and Justin Barnhart.

The attorneys have said McCormick plans to appeal and submitted a request for a new trial. They claim insufficient evidence was presented in the trial to convict him. Prosecutors objected to the request and Wells hasn’t yet ruled, according to court documents.
