‘Greensburg 6’ Suspect to Be Tried As Adult

By: Trina Orlando

GREENSBURG (KDKA) – A Monday morning hearing cleared the way for one of the six suspects accused of murdering a Greensburg woman last year to go to trial.

Angela Marinucci was 17-years-old at the time she and five co-defendants are accused of murdering Jennifer Daugherty inside of a Greensburg apartment.

During Monday’s hearing, Marinucci’s attorney withdrew a motion asking that her case be moved to juvenile court. Defense attorney Mike DeMatt also withdrew a motion asking for a psychological evaluation of his client.

Marinucci briefly took the stand so the judge could be sure she understood what it meant to withdraw the motions.

She told the judge she had extensively discussed the two items with her attorney.

However, she also told the judge that she didn’t understand the proceedings and the judge answered her questions.

Prosecutors told the judge they would hand over all remaining discovery by Tuesday, including phone records of text messages from all the phones that were confiscated.

Daugherty’s phone records could not be retrieved because of her cell phone provider.

Investigators tell KDKA-TV that they are continuing to get new information in this case and they will be interviewing a new jailhouse snitch sometime this week.

As for a plea deal, DeMatt said there is no offer currently on the table. He said he and his client would not be opposed to it if the appropriate offer were made.

Jury selection in Marinucci’s trial is set to begin May 2 in front of Judge Rita Hathaway.

    She SHOULD be treated as an adult. You want to act like a big girl and participate in a murder/torture and then play stupid/naive? An eye for an eye is what I think! She needs to sit and suffer in jail with the rest of those sickos for the rest of her life!

    Really don’t you think that if your going to kill someone at the age of 17 your more then likely going to be tried as an adult..don’t act stupid not knowing whats going on when damn well you do know and your just trying to find a way out .. please end up with life in prison you deserve it..

    What irates me is when these six low life animals were first arrested…they were kept in isolation away from the other prisoners. WHY!!! Who protected Ms Jennifer. Six animals against one beautiful small and thin young lady.

    i do not want to pay for these six animals to be in jail for the rest of their lives. Make their last meal the exact small thing that force Ms. Jennifer to eat and drink.

    God bless you Ms. Jennifer
