NEW BRIGHTON, Pa. – The lawyer for a Pennsylvania bride accused of killing her niece after the wedding says the fatal shooting was an accident.
The attorney told the Beaver County Times on Saturday that 30-year-old newlywed Christina George-Harvan is obviously completely distraught.
Police say George-Harvan, of Conway, shot 21-year-old Katelyn Francis on Thursday as they left a bar in New Brighton. The wedding was held earlier that day.
Police say they were arguing about who would be the designated driver when the bride grabbed a gun from her husband’s truck and shot Francis. She’s charged with homicide and is being held without bail.
