PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A man accused of stabbing his friend to death in Mt. Oliver says he’s innocent.
Donald Finnigan was arrested Monday in the murder of 31-year-old Kevin Hill in the 100-block of Amanda Avenue.
KDKA’s Bob Allen caught up with Finnigan as he was escorted in handcuffs by police.
Finnigan: “No way.”
Bob Allen: “No way? You didn’t do it?”
Finnigan shook his head no in response.
Police got a tip Finnigan was hiding at his mother’s house in West Mifflin.
“I’m glad I came out and put myself in – I surrendered to the police and just trying to get this over with,” he told KDKA-TV.
Witnesses tell police that Hill, Finnigan and a relative were drinking and doing drugs when Finnigan allegedly stabbed Hill during an argument.
A man who lived in the home says he called 911 and tried to revive Hill before he died.
Finnigan will be arraigned and taken to the Allegheny County Jail. In the meantime, he’s still being questioned by detectives at Allegheny County Police headquarters.
