Man headed to trial in shooting that killed 1, hurt another

BRENTWOOD, Pa. (AP) -- A Pennsylvania man has been ordered to stand trial in a shooting that killed one man and wounded another in the Pittsburgh suburbs despite his attorney's argument that his client acted in self-defense.

An Allegheny County judge on Friday ordered 28-year-old Daevon Plowden to stand trial on charges of murder, attempted murder, aggravated assault, reckless endangering and carrying a firearm without a license.

Plowden is charged in the Wednesday night shooting in Brentwood that killed 26-year-old Tamar Taylor and wounded another man.

Defense attorney James Wymard argued that the wounded man was violating a protection-from-abuse order and his client had no duty to retreat and was justified in using deadly force. Prosecutors said he wasn't merely standing his ground but chased the other man down the street as he fled.
