Man to trial for fatal shooting outside Lawrence County bar

Updated:

ELLWOOD CITY, Pa. (AP) - A man who claims he acted in self-defense when he fatally shot another man after both were kicked out of a western Pennsylvania bar has been ordered to stand trial.

Twenty-5-year-old Ian Frey, of Ellwood City, is charged in Lawrence County with criminal homicide and first-degree murder in the death of 38-year-old Keith Knox of Wampum.

A district judge couldn't consider Frey's self-defense claim at a preliminary hearing Thursday, though he may raise it at trial.

Authorities say the men were ejected after fighting inside Weisz's Hazel Manor Restaurant and Lounge in Ellwood City shortly before 2 a.m. Nov. 17.

Frey tells investigators that he was trying to leave when Knox opened the car door and attacked him, so he fired at least three shots.
