GROVE CITY, Pa. - Breaking news tonight out of a Lawrence County murder case that made international headlines.

Pennsylvania superior court has ordered a new trial for Jordan Brown.

Brown was only 11 years old when he allegedly used a shotgun to kill his father's pregnant fiancee and her unborn son.

Today, the court found that the judge who heard the case did not consider all the evidence in reaching his verdict and sent the case back to juvenile court.

Brown is now a teenager being held at George Junior Republic in Grove City.

He is under court supervision until he's 21.
