Teen who killed woman to be moved

NEW CASTLE, Pa.

A 15-year-old Lawrence County boy who killed his father’s pregnant fiancee and her unborn child when he was 11 will be moved to a juvenile detention facility closer to his father’s home.

Wampum native Jordan Brown was held after the 2009 shooting death of 26-year-old Kenzie Houk, whose unborn son died from a lack of oxygen.

Jordan previously was found delinquent, the juvenile-court equivalent of a guilty verdict. He was at an undisclosed detention center.

Houk’s parents, Debbie and Jack Houk, say a Lawrence County judge Friday granted a defense request to move Jordan to George Junior Republic in Grove City, Pa.

The teenager’s attorney says the outcome of the closed-door hearing attended by the Houks was supposed to remain secret.

Jordan is under court supervision until he’s 21. His status is reviewed every six months.
