Pa. boy who killed dad's pregnant fiancee moving

Parents say a judge on Friday granted a defense request to move him to George Junior Republic in Grove City

Associated Press

NEW CASTLE, Pa. — A 15-year-old western Pennsylvania boy who killed his father's pregnant fiancee and her unborn child when he was 11 will be moved to a juvenile detention facility closer to his father's home.

Wampum native Jordan Brown was held following the 2009 shooting death of 26-year-old Kenzie Houk, whose unborn son died from a lack of oxygen. Brown previously was found delinquent, the juvenile court equivalent of a guilty verdict. He was at an undisclosed detention center.

Houk's parents, Debbie and Jack Houk, say a Lawrence County judge on Friday granted a defense request to move Brown to George Junior Republic in Grove City.

Brown's attorney says the outcome of the closed-door hearing attended by the Houks was supposed to remain secret.
