Boy charged in shooting deaths

February 22, 2009|Times Wire Reports

An 11-year-old boy shot his father's eight-months pregnant girlfriend in the back of the head as she lay in bed in their western Pennsylvania farmhouse, then got on the bus and went to school, authorities said.

Jordan Brown of Wampum was charged as an adult in the shooting deaths of Kenzie Marie Houk and the unborn child. The fifth-grader was picked up from school Friday by Pennsylvania State Police, who found Houk's body after her 4-year-old daughter told tree cutters on the property that she thought her mother was dead.
