Lawrence County District Attorney John Bongivengo will be pursing the 11 year old juvenile as an adult. (Any one over the age of 10 accused of murder or homicide is charged as an adult in Pennsylvania.) Houk's 4-year-old daughter apparently found her mom shot to death in her bed and informed workers near the home. Watch Community Reaction.
If convicted, Jordan Brown of Wampum, faces possibly life in prison. For more information about this 20 gauge shotgun slaying, see: WTAE: Boy Kills Dad's Pregnant Girlfriend.
The 11 year old is represented by Dennis Elisco, a public defender.
