Boy, Age 11, Charged With Killing Pregnant Woman

An 11-year old boy has been charged with killing a pregnant woman in western Pennsylvania.

The woman's five-year old daughter found her body Friday morning in a bedroom in their farmhouse in Wampum, which is near Pittsburgh. She had been shot.

State police say the girl ran outside and told tree-cutting workers, who called 911. The boy was arrested just after 3 a.m. Saturday.

Police do not know yet if the boy and 26-year old woman are related.

The boy was charged with criminal homicide and criminal homicide of an unborn child. The woman was eight months pregnant.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled Thursday.
