Defense questions shooter in 2013 slaying case

August 4, 2018

WASHINGTON, Pa. (AP) — The attorney representing a man charged in a slaying during an alleged effort to steal guns from a safe in a Pennsylvania home 5½ years ago is questioning who was responsible for the shooting.

Twenty-three-year-old Brandon Wolowski is charged with homicide, attempted homicide, aggravated assault and robbery in the January 2013 death of 37-year-old Matthew Mathias and the wounding of his girlfriend in Washington, Pennsylvania.

The (Washington) Observer-Reporter reports that defense attorney Noah Geary noted that a 911 dispatch transcript says the woman called for help after “her boyfriend shot her in the face.”

Prosecutors have said they plan to seek the death penalty if Wolowski is convicted of first-degree murder. They last month offered a 40- to 80 year term in exchange for a third-degree murder plea.
