TEENAGE GIRL SLAIN
Teenage girl slain at Pittsburgh-area complex
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Police in western Pennsylvania say a 16-year-old girl was shot and killed in a Pittsburgh-area housing complex.
Allegheny County investigators said police and paramedics were called to the Hawkins Village housing complex in Rankin address shortly after 7:30 p.m. Friday.
They told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that the body of Delasia Dutrieuille was found near a playground.
Lt. Andrew Schurman said she was killed after a confrontation with two boys, possibly over a robbery earlier in the evening.
A police K-9 unit tracked the suspects, and one youth was taken into custody. An apartment building in nearby Braddock was being searched for a second suspect.
SHOT IN HOMEROOM
Youth suspended, cited after classmate hit by BB
WEST CHESTER (AP) - Police say a suburban Philadelphia high school student was cited and suspended after a classmate was shot with a BB gun in homeroom.
Investigators in Chester County allege that the 16-year-old student brought the gun to Rustin High School on Thursday and other students encouraged him to fire it at a friend.
Westtown-East Goshen police said in a statement that the victim was uninjured by the plastic pellet except for a "minor red mark" on his chest.
Police said school officials learned about the matter from an anonymous note from another student.
Police said the student will be cited for the summary offenses of disorderly conduct and sale and use of air rifles.
School district officials said he had been suspended, citing a "zero tolerance" policy on guns in school.
No bail for Pa. parents in faith-healing death
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A Philadelphia man charged with murder after losing two sons to untreated pneumonia told police he believes in "divine healing," not medicine, to "break the devil's power."
Herbert and Catherine Schaible (SHY'-bul) were ordered held without bail Friday on third-degree murder charges in the April death of their 8-month-old son, Brandon.
The Schaibles had been required to get their children medical care as part of their probation in the 2009 death of 2-year-old Kent. They are both third-generation members of First Century Gospel Church.
Former college professor Vincent Bertolini was the jury foreman from their earlier case, when they were convicted of involuntary manslaughter.
Bertolini expected city officials to closely monitor the family afterward. But he admits the family can't be watched 24 hours a day.
STEEL PLANT ACCIDENT
Company investigates explosion at Pa. steel plant
COATESVILLE, Pa. (AP) - Officials have begun investigating an apparent explosion at an eastern Pennsylvania steel plant that hurt three people.
Investigators say a bucket containing molten steel exploded on Thursday night at the ArcelorMittal plant in Coatesville.
ArcelorMittal spokesman William Steers told the Daily Local News on Friday that both the company and steelworkers' union are looking into the incident. Federal health and safety officials have also been notified.
The conditions of the three injured workers weren't immediately known. Coatesville is about 40 miles west of Philadelphia.
PENNSYLVANIA PRIMARY-HARRISBURG MAYOR
Papenfuse may face rematch for Harrisburg mayor
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - The runner-up in Harrisburg's Democratic mayoral primary could get another shot at Democratic nominee Eric Papenfuse, this time as a Republican.
Officials said Friday that Dan Miller, who placed second behind Papenfuse in the Democratic race, was the top vote-getter for the Republican nomination. Dauphin County elections chief Jerry Feaser said Miller, the city controller, received 196 write-in votes.
Chuck Ardo, a Miller campaign consultant, says Miller is vacationing and plans to confer with his advisers once he returns. Ardo says there's "very strong support" in the Miller camp for him to run in the general election as a Republican.
If Miller does that, it would be a three-way race. Miller would face bookstore owner Papenfuse, who defeated incumbent Mayor Linda Thompson in Tuesday's primary, and independent Nevin Mindlin.
FIRE CHIEF KILLED
Man will be tried for crash that killed Pa. chief
YORK, Pa. (AP) - A 32-year-old motorist will stand trial on charges that he killed a central Pennsylvania fire chief while driving drunk.
A York County judge ruled that there's enough evidence to try Matthew Diehl. He is accused of fatally striking Loganville Fire Chief Rodney Miller while Miller directed traffic last month.
The York Dispatch reports a third-degree murder charge was added against Diehl at Friday's hearing. He already faces counts including homicide by vehicle while DUI.
Defense attorney Suzanne Smith says she doesn't believe the case rises to the level of third-degree murder.
Police say Diehl's blood-alcohol level was 0.118% at the time of the accident. The legal limit in Pennsylvania is .08.
A state trooper testified at the hearing that Diehl has two prior DUI convictions.
MOBILE HOME PARK-LAWSUIT
State AG settles cent. Pa. mobile home park suit
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - The state attorney general's office says the owners of a central Pennsylvania mobile home park have agreed to pay more than $26,000 to settle a lawsuit over relocation expenses due to residents who had to move after the park closed.
Attorney General Kathleen Kane had said in a lawsuit that siblings and Hilltop Mobile Home Park owners Kenneth Mayes II and his sister, Sharon Mayes, violated the Manufactured Home Community Rights Act in closing the park in State College on Feb. 28.
A statement from Kane's office this week said the owners will pay $21,700 to distribute to residents and $5,000 for court costs and attorney fees.
The agreement calls for an additional $10,000 to be set aside if more residents file valid clams in the next 30 days.
BALD EAGLES SHOT
Game agency reports 2nd Pa. eagle shot this month
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania game officials say an investigation shows a second bald eagle's death in the past month was caused by a bullet wound.
The Game Commission said Friday that it made that determination after examining the carcass of a mature eagle found dead May 5 in western Pennsylvania's Butler County.
Earlier this week, the agency said it was looking into the shooting of a mature male bald eagle found injured in Cambria County on May 10. It later died from those wounds.
The Game Commission says anyone with information should call 888-PGC-8001 and may be eligible for a reward.
Bald eagles are classified as threatened in the state. They're no longer on the federal endangered species list.
