The prosecution has rested its case in the trial of a bride who's accused of shooting and killing her niece last year on her wedding day in Beaver County. Police say 30-year-old newlywed Christina George-Harvan and her niece, 21-year-old Katelyn Francis, were celebrating after the wedding when the two started arguing about who was going to drive home from Jimmy K's Bar on 11th Avenue in New Brighton, which led to the shooting. The prosecution rested this morning and the defense opened its case by calling a ballistics expert to the stand. Defense attorneys say the shooting was an accident.
Aliquippa police charged two city men accused of breaking into a local bar and stealing a television. 48-year-old Phillip "Ducci-Bang" Moreland is accused of breaking into Jesse's Cafe in the 700 block of Davis St. around 4 a.m. Wednesday while 49-year-old Donzell Cobb, police say, stood guard outside. Witnesses told police Moreland broke a window to get into the bar and carried out a flat-screen television.
The Aliquippa School District is reviewing its security policies after a student brought a gun to school. In a letter to parents, Superintendent David Wytiaz said the student arrived late to class Wednesday at the Aliquippa Junior-Senior High School. He did not pass through the security checkpoint and metal detector. A staff member later noticed the student had placed what turned out to be a gun in the gym bleachers. Aliquippa police were contacted and responded immediately. The student - identified as 18-year-old Raequan Wannamaker - was placed under arrest. The superintendent says this situation showed a weakness in the security procedures and from now on, no matter what time a student arrives, they will have to through the metal detector or wand search.
