Bride accused of killing niece after wedding ordered to stand trial

A Pennsylvania bride accused of killing her niece after the wedding has been ordered to stand trial on homicide and aggravated assault charges.

Charges against 30-year-old newlywed Christina George-Harvan were sent to Beaver County court after her preliminary hearing Friday. She is being held without bail.

Prosecutors allege George-Harvan, of Conway, shot 21-year-old Katelyn Francis on April 24 as they left a bar in New Brighton, about 30 miles north of Pittsburgh. The wedding was held earlier that day.

Police said the newlyweds and Francis were arguing about who would be the designated driver when the bride picked up a gun from her husband's truck and shot Francis, of Fairmont, W.Va.

Defense attorney Stephen Colafella said his client simply tried to move the gun when it went off.
