Attorney Eric Nemecek Enters Not-Guilty Plea in Home Invasion Case


Attorney Eric Nemecek accompanied a client to their arraignment this week to enter a not-guilty plea on his behalf. William H. Mareda is suspected to have been involved in a Parma home invasion earlier this month.

According to, Mareda and Kyle A. Vokac (both of Cuyahoga Heights) are accused of forcing their way into a Maplewood Drive on April 6. Investigators believe that the two men robbed two occupants at gunpoint and discharged a weapon twice through a window as they left the property.

Mareda stands accused of multiple offenses for the alleged offense. These include six counts of aggravated robbery, two counts of kidnapping and felonious assault, one count of aggravated theft and criminal damaging, and a weapons charge.

Out on Bond, Trial Pending

Currently, both Mareda and Vokac are out on bond, $75,000 and $25,000, respectively. Judge Hollie Gallagher ordered Mareda to have no contact with the alleged victims until his trial, which has been scheduled for May 9.
