New trial sought for Pennsylvania boy convicted of murder at age 11

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 03/06/2015 - 07:26
By Elizabeth Daley PITTSBURGH (Reuters) - Attorneys for a Pennsylvania boy convicted of murdering his father's pregnant girlfriend when he was 11 years old asked a judge on Thursday to grant him a new trial or set him free. The conviction of Jordan Brown, now 17, was vacated in 2013 but he remains in juvenile detention while his case is in court proceedings, said his attorney Stephen Colafella. Brown was found guilty as a juvenile of the February 2009 murder of Kenzie Houk, 26, in Wampum, Pennsylvania, north of Pittsburgh. Prosecutors said at trial that the boy was motivated by jealousy of the girlfriend's relationship with his father, Colafella said.
