In December, Maruna had responded to a post in a dating app. The conversation quickly turned sexual.
During the conversations, Maruna sent nude photos of himself and told the boy he wanted to marry him someday.
According to police, Maruna arranged to meet the officer at a location in Austintown, telling him that [he] is bringing lube, Sprite, and chicken alfredo. He also instructed the undercover officer to wear a jockstrap.
