Police: Woman found dead on porch was shot in face


PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Authorities say a woman found dead on a porch in Pittsburgh had been shot in the face.

Officers were called to a Larimer apartment building just after 5:30 p.m. Friday and found 42-year-old Melissa Manhart lying on a rear porch. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said Monday the medical examiner had determined that the victim "was shot one time in the face."

The police department's violent crime unit is investigating, and anyone with information is asked to call.
