Man Charged In Shooting Death Of Older Brother

DAMASCUS, Pa. (AP) – Authorities say a northeastern Pennsylvania man has been charged in the shooting death of his older brother.

State police in Wayne County said 30-year-old Antonio Cilino, of Hawley, turned himself in Saturday to face charges in the death of 40-year-old Joseph Cilino, of Honesdale.

Police say the defendant saw the victim Friday in a car with his ex-girlfriend and the former couple’s 1-year-old child. Police said he followed the vehicle, and a confrontation followed at a driveway in Damascus Township. Authorities said the woman had a protection-from-abuse order against the defendant. She drove away with the child after the shooting.
