Share with others:
State police have charged the wife of the first suspect in connection with the shooting death of a man in Greene County earlier this month.
Officials have provided no details about how the woman, who was also shot during the altercation on Strawn Hill Road in Wayne, became a suspect aside from saying in a news release that she was an "accomplice."
Lana Roe, 40, of Daisytown, spent more than four hours at the state police barracks in Waynesburg today before she was taken to the office of Magisterial District Court Judge Louis Dayich for arraignment on one charge of homicide, said her attorney, Michael Bigley.
Police charged her husband, Jason W. Roe, 32, of Daisytown, with criminal homicide and aggravated assault after they said he used a shotgun to shoot Ms. Roe and Cordele Patterson, 38, who died of his wounds. Ms. Roe was treated and released.
State police declined to comment late tonight, saying the investigating trooper was not available.
Mr. Bigley said he was still trying to obtain a copy of the criminal complaint so he could review the details of the charges.
Additional officials working on the case could not immediately be reached late tonight. The attorney representing Mr. Roe declined to comment.
