Theft trial awaits for man charged in sisters’ murders
GREENSBURG (AP) – A Western Pennsylvania man accused of having robbed and killed his next-door neighbors, two sisters of an Iowa state lawmaker, now also faces trial on charges that he stole another woman’s wedding ring a year ago.
State police in Greensburg allege that 43-year-old Allen Wade of East Liberty stole the ring while delivering a refrigerator to a home in April 2013. Westmoreland County Common Pleas Judge Rita Hathaway on Thursday agreed to schedule the case for trial.
Wade is awaiting trial in the slayings of 38-year-old Sarah Wolfe and 44-year-old Susan Wolfe, who were found shot to death in their basement in February. He is scheduled to be formally arraigned in that case next month.
