PARMA– Taras Martinuk was arrested for using a crossbow to shoot and kill a deer in his backyard last month.
According to police reports, Martinuk shot the doe with an arrow and a neighbor later reported the deer dead in his backyard.

According to Parma city code, it is illegal to shoot firearms or other weapons within city limits.
Wednesday, Martinuk was arraigned in municipal court on charges of illegal hunting, discharge of firearms, possession of loaded weapons, criminal trespassing, and possession of criminal tools.
Martinuk faces up to 9 months in jail and almost $2,000 in fines.
