Family of Pa. boy accused of murder: He's innocentKin of Pa. boy who was 11 when dad's pregnant fiancee was slain says he's innocent of murder
NEW CASTLE, Pa. (AP) ' Relatives and friends of a western Pennsylvania boy who was just 11 when he was charged with killing his father's pregnant fianc e say they're convinced he's innocent.
One of those friends, Dodi Frankovich, has been sitting outside the Lawrence County courtroom where Jordan Brown is on trial.
Brown's juvenile trial in New Castle is closed to the media and general public. Only witnesses and immediate family members are allowed to attend.
Frankovich said Tuesday that she came to support Brown. She says friends and family members "know he's innocent and we believe in him."
Brown is charged in the February 2009 shotgun deaths of 26-year-old Kenzie Houk and her unborn child.
Neither defense lawyers nor prosecutors have commented on the trial so far.
