Murder scene was chilling, Ellwood City officer testifies

NEW CASTLE, Pa.

Two Ellwood City police officers on duty the morning of May 22 got a call to go to 804 Pershing St. for a possible deceased person.

What they found when they got there around 10:30 a.m., officers Christopher Hardie and Michael McBride testified, was Keith Wolfrey, 23, calmly smiling and playing with his 6-month-old son on the porch.

“I asked him where the dead person is,” McBride testified before a packed room at Wolfrey’s preliminary hearing on murder charges in Lawrence County Central Court on Thursday.

“He said, “‘She’s inside,’” McBride continued, adding that Wolfrey made a backward motion with his thumb over his shoulder.

He motioned like an umpire throwing someone out of a game, noted Assistant District Attorney Thomas Minett.

Yes, McBride agreed,

adding that Wolfrey showed no emotion.

“I got a chill down my back, because it wasn’t normal,” McBride said.
