Teen gets new hearing in case of woman's killing

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- A western Pennsylvania teen is getting a new chance to argue there wasn't sufficient evidence to convict him in the shooting death of his father's pregnant fiancee when the boy was 11 years old.

The state Supreme Court on Monday sent the matter back to Lawrence County juvenile court to hold a hearing about the evidence used to convict Jordan Brown of the February 2009 shotgun killing of 26-year-old Kenzie Houk and her unborn son.

One of Brown's lawyers, Lourdes Rosado, says his lawyers will file a motion seeking a new trial, arguing that his prior conviction in juvenile court went against the weight of the evidence.

The 17-year-old Brown remains in a juvenile facility.

Messages seeking comment from the attorney general's office weren't immediately returned.
