Jordan Brown Trial Postponed While Court Reviews Appeal
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The trial for Jordan Brown – scheduled to begin on Tuesday – has been postponed.
This comes after the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review and the New Castle News appealed a judge’s decision to try to keep the public and the media out of court during Jordan Brown’s trial.
Brown allegedly shot and killed 26-year-old Kenzie Houk in 2009 at their home in New Beaver Township.
The trial has been postponed until an appeals court reviews whether the trial can be public.
A Lawrence County judge has already denied requests by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the New Castle News and the Tribune-Review.
Brown was 11 when he was arrested and was originally charged as an adult. However, the case was moved to juvenile court last month.
