Homewood

Officers' lawyers want to exclude witnesses

Lawyers for three Pittsburgh police officers asked a federal judge on Monday to exclude several witnesses and reports from a July 16 trial at which jurors will decide whether they violated a Homewood man's civil rights during a 2010 arrest.

Jordan Miles, 20, claims Officers Richard Ewing, Michael Saldutte and David Sisak beat him. The officers contend Miles resisted arrest and they used proper force.

J. Kerrington Lewis, one of Miles' lawyers, said the challenged witnesses and reports are a legitimate part of the case against the three officers.

Allegheny County

Wilkinsburg

Police lieutenant settles suit with chief

A Wilkinsburg police lieutenant has apparently settled her federal civil rights lawsuit against the borough and Chief Ophelia Coleman, according to court records.

Lt. Michele Krempasky-Proctor claimed in the lawsuit that Coleman spoke disparagingly about her and changed her work schedule after Krempasky-Proctor testified against the chief during an investigation of the department.

Coleman denied any retaliation and said in court documents that she had never seen a copy of the investigation report.

Lawyers for all sides filed a joint motion on Monday asking U.S. Magistrate Judge Maureen Kelly to dismiss the case. The motion does not provide any details.

Tarentum

Falcons' successful nesting first in area

A pair of peregrine falcons has successfully nested on the Tarentum Bridge, producing two young birds.

The nesting is the first onfirmed in the Tarentum area, according to Art McMorris, peregrine falcon coordinator for the Pennsylvania Game Commission. The state Game Commission has been monitoring the population of peregrines in the state, banding young birds at nests when they can.

The peregrine falcons' populations collapsed in the early 1960s east of the Rocky Mountains because of the pesticide DDT. The peregrine falcon is still considered to be endangered in Pennsylvania.

Bethel Park

DNA evidence tests faulty, suspect says

A West Virginia man facing charges for killing his former wife in Bethel Park more than a decade ago wants the DNA evidence against him thrown out, saying investigators waited too long to perform an analysis of hair found at the crime scene.

John Minch, 44, was arrested in 2009 at his home in Cameron, W.Va., for the slaying of Melissa Groot, 29, inside the Park Avenue home she shared with her new family, police said. Groot's body was found by her husband, David Groot, when he returned home from work on May 6, 1999.

Minch and his attorney told Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey A. Manning on Monday that investigators waited until 2007 to conduct a microscopic examination of the hairs and until 2009 to do a mitochondrial DNA test, which police said linked Minch to the crime.

Dormont

Fla. man sentenced in soldier's identity theft

A federal judge on Monday sentenced a Florida man to one year and one day in prison for stealing the identity of a Dormont soldier while he was deployed to Iraq.

Robert Frank Key, 28, of Clearwater Beach, Fla., pleaded guilty in November to using Army Sgt. Joshua Munson's personal information to open credit card accounts and create a false Illinois driver's license in his name.

Munson told the Tribune-Review in December that Key obtained his personal information while Key was a guest of someone who was renting Munson's house while he was on deployment. …
