STATE POLICE KILL INDIANA COUNTY MAN

BRUSH VALLEY, Pa. -- A Pennsylvania State Police trooper shot and killed a man early this morning in Indiana County.

State police went to a home on Route 56 in Brush Valley for a call reporting a domestic disturbance shortly after midnight. Upon their arrival, a man carrying a shotgun came out of the front door, Trooper John Matchik said.

The man pointed the shotgun at state police, leading one of the two troopers on scene to fire at the suspect, Trooper Matchik said.

The man went back into the home, where police later found him dead.

His name has not yet been released.

FATHER, SON SENTENCED IN KILLING

An Allegheny County judge sentenced a North Side man to minimum of 30 months in prison and his son to 24 months in the killing of a man in a fight in September 2011.

Judge Jeffrey A. Manning found Bryan Keith Osborne guilty of involuntary manslaughter in May for the stabbing death of Michael Weismantle. Judge Manning found his son, Alex Osborne, guilty of simple assault.

With 22 months time already served the elder Osborne could be out of jail in eight months and his son in two months.

Weismantle and five other people went to the Osborne home just before 2 a.m. on Sept. 7, 2011, where two young women were fighting.

The fight widened and Bryan Osborne was found guilty of stabbing Weismantle three times

MAN SENTENCED IN PITT THREATS

One of two Ohio men who threatened the University of Pittsburgh and claimed to be part of the Anonymous computer hacking network was sentenced today to three months in a halfway house and three months of home confinement.

Brett Hudson, 27, of Wilmington, opted not to speak in his own defense at the hearing before U.S. District Judge Joy Flowers Conti.

The home confinement portion of the sentence is part of two years of probation, during which Hudson's computer use will be monitored by federal probation officers.

Hudson pleaded guilty in October to conspiracy. He and Alexander Waterland, 25, of Loveland, Ohio, used computer programs to scrape content from Pitt's website in April 2012, during a period in which the university was, separately, subjected to repeated bomb threats. The two used YouTube, Twitter and e-mail to claim they were part of Anonymous and threaten to release private information unless Pitt apologized for not protecting student data.

The university has said that the two never obtained any private data.

Waterland was sentenced previously to one year and one day in prison.

Charged in the bomb threats is Adam Stuart Busby of Scotland, who has not yet been extradited.
