Neighbor accused of killing Pittsburgh sisters

  • March 5, 2014

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Pittsburgh police have charged a neighbor with killing two sisters of an Iowa state lawmaker during a break-in and robbery at their home last month.

Forty-three-year-old Allen Darell Wade is not in custody, and police say he should be considered armed and dangerous.

Authorities say he left his residence after he was questioned in the slayings of 44-year-old Susan Wolf and her sister, 38-year-old Sarah Wolfe.

Their bodies were found Feb. 7. Wade had been questioned and released late last month before police filed charges including criminal homicide, burglary and robbery against him Wednesday.

Police didn’t immediately say how they linked Wade to the killings of the sisters of Democratic state Rep. Mary Wolfe. But investigators had been conducting DNA tests on items taken from the home.
