ELLWOOD CITY (KDKA) – Two people have been arrested after a man was found dead in Ellwood City late Sunday night.

According to Pennsylvania State Police, Gerald Lee Orock Jr., 57, of Fombell, died following a fight at the loading dock of Loccisano’s Golden Dawn in Ellwood City.

This afternoon, police arrested his ex-wife, Lisa Marie Orock and Zachary Jones, her son. They allegedly lured him behind the store and attacked him with a wooden club.

The couple had a history of domestic dispute incidents.

In March, Lisa was charged after allegedly trying to cut off Gerald’s penis with a box cutter in Ellwood City.

Lisa initially told police Gerald attacked her with a knife. As a result, he was briefly taken into custody.

After being taken to the New Castle Police Department, he told police she tried to cut his penis off with a box cutter.

His pants were cut in the crotch area. He also had cuts to his arms and hands. Police determined the wounds were defensive in nature.

On Sunday, a witness was out walking around 10:30 p.m. when they saw someone strike Gerald.

“Police responded to the scene and found Mr. Orock deceased. They have requested Pennsylvania State Police assist with the investigation,” Trooper Dan Kesten said.

When police arrived, they found him lying in the grocery store parking lot. Police were at the scene until the early Monday morning hours.

Multiple investigators were set up behind Loccisano’s with a large perimeter taped off. At this point in time, police do not believe anyone involved in the incident is connected with the grocery store.

“We believe this is an isolated targeted incident. We don’t believe this is something citizens need to be in fear of,” Kesten said.
