Thirty-one-year-old Lamont North of Beaver Falls was convicted in August of third-degree murder and reckless endangerment in the Dec. 24 shooting death of 20-year-old Mark Waldron in a Beaver Falls bar. He was acquitted of first-degree murder.
The Beaver County Times ( http://bit.ly/RajDjK) says North apologized in court Wednesday to Waldron's family, saying "I pray for you more than I pray for myself."
North testified that three armed men had burst into his apartment Dec. 19 and fired two shots. In the bar, he said, Waldron told him "Next time, I won't miss." No one has been charged in the home invasion.
