BEAVER, Pa. — Defense attorneys are to begin their case Monday in the trial of one of three defendants charged in what prosecutors say was a robbery during a drug deal that claimed two lives.
The Beaver County Times (http://bit.ly/2ww41EV ) reports that Beaver County prosecutors wrapped up their case Friday in the trial of 18-year-old Ronald Foster.
Prosecutors allege that he helped plan the September robbery in Aliquippa of 18-year-old Dane Mathesius and 16-year-old William Booher during a drug sale.
Booher was found shot to death in a car. Mathesius ran from the scene and was found dead several days later in the backyard of a nearby home.
Defense attorney Paul Gettleman has said his client had nothing to do with the shootings and “just wanted to buy some weed.”
