PITTSBURGH (AP) -A Superior Court panel in Pennsylvania has denied the appeal of an 18-year-old man, who was only 11 when he was charged with killing his father’s pregnant fiancee and her unborn child in Lawrence County.

Jordan Brown, who is now reportedly living in Boardman, was charged as a juvenile and judged to be delinquent in the February 2009 shotgun slaying of 26-year-old Kenzie Houk, who was eight months pregnant.

Last year, a Lawrence County judge turned down Brown’s request to dismiss the charges or grant a new juvenile court trial.

In its 33 page opinion issued on Thursday, the Superior Court upheld the lower court decision, saying it did not find merit in argument’s from Brown’s attorney that evidence in the case was insufficient.
