An Indiana County man accused of shooting his ex-girlfriend earlier this month in Westmoreland County was held for trial today on charges including attempted homicide.

Pennsylvania State Police said Arthur L. Whitfield, 51, of Josephine, went into Holly George Embry's Derry residence Dec. 1 and opened fire at least four times, critically injuring her.

Joseph Massaro Jr. of the Westmoreland County public defender's office, who represented Mr. Whitfield, did not immediately return a message seeking comment.

Derry District Judge Mark Bilik revoked bond after the hearing. Mr. Whitfield remains in the Wesmoreland County Prison.
