BROOKVILLE - A Brookville man accused in the shooting deaths of his parents very nearly escaped.
According to the affidavit of probable cause filed with District Judge Richard Beck in Brookville, Richard J. Reed, 44, was stopped by Canadian Border Police at Niagara Falls, Canada, and returned to the United States.
Jefferson County District Attorney Jeff Burkett said that if Reed had crossed into Canada it would have made extradition to Pennsylvania almost impossible.
Burkett said Canada will not extradite suspects to states that have the death penalty. Pennsylvania has the death penalty. Read more in the DuBois Courier Express.
