Residents alerted about new neighbor

HOWLAND

People are released from prison every day, but it’s not every day a convicted murderer moves into your neighborhood.

And as far as James Epstein, former Mercer County, Pa., district attorney is concerned, Shawn Jarrett, 49, isn’t just any ex-con.

“There are certain cases you remember, and this is one of them,” he said of Jarrett’s murder of his next-door neighbor, Mary Sposito, 64, in March 1982 in Farrell, Pa., and an attack on a 58-year-old woman two months later in her Sharon home.

“I recall the case because of the unprovoked, extremely violent attacks on two innocent victims,” Epstein said.

And to Paul Monroe, Howland police chief, the release of Jarrett two weeks ago from the Pennsylvania prison system to live with his parents on Dawson Drive in Howland was unusual because authorities took the time to alert him.
