Trial ordered in death of woman shot looking out window
UNIONTOWN, Pa. – A man has been ordered to stand trial in the death of a western Pennsylvania woman hit by bullet as she was looking out a window.
The (Uniontown) Herald-Standard reports that 30-year-old Ronald Crossland was held for trial on third-degree murder and other charges after a hearing last week.
Authorities in Fayette County say 32-year-old Jacqueline Carey was visiting her sister’s Uniontown home in November 2016 when a noise prompted the mother of six to look out a window and she was hit in the chest.
Uniontown police allege in court documents that Crossland and another man had been asked to leave a party earlier and he brandished a handgun.
Defense attorney Vincent Tiberi argued that no one saw Crossland fire and the gun was found near the other man.
