Pa. boy ordered into state custody for 2009 deathsPa. boy ordered into state custody for 2009 deaths of father's pregnant fianc e, unborn son
NEW CASTLE, Pa. (AP) ' A 14-year-old Pennsylvania boy accused of killing his father's pregnant fianc e and her unborn child will be sent to an undisclosed juvenile facility where he could remain in state custody until his 21st birthday.
Jordan Brown, who was 11 at the time of the slayings, was ordered by a judge on Friday to be transferred to a treatment center. The teenager is to be evaluated every six months to determine if he should be released.
The judge last month found New Castle teenager delinquent ' the juvenile court equivalent of a guilty verdict ' in the February 2009 deaths of 26-year-old Kenzie Houk and her unborn son.
Houk was shot in the back of the head as she slept. The shooting occurred after the boy's father left for work.
