PA Attorney General loses Jordan Brown challenge

PITTSBURGH (AP) - A state appeals court has rejected the state Attorney General's request to reargue the case of a western Pennsylvania boy who was just 11 when he was charged in the shotgun killing of his father's pregnant fiancee and her unborn child in February 2009.

The Superior Court ruling means its May decision overturning the delinquency ruling in the case of Jordan Brown - who is now 15 - still stands. The state now has 30 days to appeal to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

 A three-judge Superior Court panel ruled last week was insufficient evidence for a Lawrence County judge to find Brown delinquent - the juvenile court equivalent of a guilty verdict - in the deaths of Benzie Hook, 26, and her unborn son.

 Brown remains in juvenile custody while the appeals continue.
