November 11, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

Two teenage boys allegedly killed their counselor at a juvenile detention center and escaped in his pickup, but turned themselves in at a high school hours later, authorities said.

Wayne Lamont Urey Jr., 43, was strangled to death in one of the boy's bedrooms shortly after midnight at George Junior Republic, a private residential school and treatment center in Grove City, authorities said.

At about the same time, two boys, 16 and 17, escaped in Urey's truck, then surrendered to a security guard at a Pittsburgh high school.
