Judge to decide on use of statements in woman’s slaying
UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A judge will decide whether prosecutors can use statements from a man charged in the death of a western Pennsylvania woman hit by a bullet as she was looking out a window.
The (Uniontown) Herald-Standard reports that 30-year-old Ronald Crossland’s attorney says investigators knew his client had an attorney when they interviewed him in the death of 32-year-old Jacqueline Carey. A detective said he didn’t ask for an attorney but said he one was representing him on another matter.
Fayette County authorities say 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 shot.
Police allege that Crossland and another man were asked to leave a party earlier and he had brandished a handgun.
