A Donora man wanted by police turned himself in Monday on charges he tried to murder a Monessen man June 8 at a house party.

Deaubre Phill Lightfoot, 22, of 466 Third St., was arraigned at 11:24 a.m. in front of Magisterial District Judge Joseph Dalfonso in Monessen and remanded to the Westmoreland County Prison in lieu of $50,000 cash bond.

Lightfoot faces charges of attempted homicide, aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and simple assault after Monessen police said he pistol whipped Dealo Duncan before firing two bullets into the victim's chest and head in the basement of a residence at 527 Chestnut St.

Police believe Lightfoot was acting in retaliation from a recent incident when his brother was allegedly shot in the hand by Duncan.

According to Monessen police Chief John Mandarino, Duncan was treated and released from the hospital and is back home.

Lightfoot's preliminary hearing is scheduled for 11 a.m. June 28 in front of Dalfonso.
