Everson woman waives attempted homicide charge to court

| Monday, July 1, 2013, 6:19 p.m.

An Everson woman waived her right to a preliminary hearing on charges that include attempted homicide and will face trial in county court.

Danielle M. Falcon, 28, of 404 Brown St., Everson, was charged with attempted homicide, aggravated assault, simple assault and reckless endangerment as filed by state police in Greensburg. The hearing was scheduled June 26 before Scottdale District Judge Charles Moore.

Falcon is accused of driving over a woman after waiting for her to arrive at Falcon's ex-boyfriend's residence.

Police said the attack occurred about 6:45 p.m. June 18 at the residence of Eric Adams on Buckeye Tram Road.

The victim, Katelin Hiltabidel, 23, was flown to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh with multiple injuries, including compound fractures to both legs and multiple bruises and contusions.

Police said Falcon and Adams apparently had been romantically involved until a few weeks prior to the incident.

Police said she waited for Hiltabidel to arrive at Adams' residence, where she used her vehicle to run Hiltabidel over.

Police said Falcon showed some remorse for her actions. She assisted Hiltabidel until paramedics and police arrived.

Falcon remains in the Westmoreland County Prison in lieu of $50,000 bond.

She is scheduled for formal arraignment Aug. 14 at the Westmoreland County Courthouse.
