A North Huntingdon woman failed to show that three Pittsburgh detectives mislead an investigative grand jury and a judge into charging her for the 1986 murder of her husband, a federal judge ruled in dismissing her lawsuit.

Police in 2007 charged Diana Rader, 68, with the murder of Raymond Marzoch, 47, a state prison guard who was found fatally shot inside a Downtown parking garage. An Allegheny County judge dismissed the charges later that year for lack of evidence.

Rader sued the city and the three detectives who worked the case over the years — J.R. Smith, Scott Evans and Terry Hediger — but later dropped the city from the lawsuit. U.S. District Judge David Cercone on Friday granted summary judgment in favor of the three detectives.
