PITTSBURGH – A western Pennsylvania 11-year-old boy accused of killing his father's pregnant fiancee has been moved to a new juvenile detention center in Erie.
Jordan Brown was moved early Monday from a facility northwest of Pittsburgh to the facility in Erie.
Last week, Brown was moved from the Lawrence County Jail to the juvenile facility in neighboring Beaver County. However, it would have cost about $4,500 a week to keep him there.
Brown's attorney says the Erie facility is cheaper and better equipped to serve the boy's needs.
Brown is accused of killing 26-year-old Kenzie Marie Houk and her unborn son. Police say that on Feb. 20, Brown shot Houk in the back of the head while she slept in their farmhouse about 50 miles north of Pittsburgh.
