Penn Hills man convicted in slayings of mother and son, wounding a third
An Allegheny County jury on Tuesday convicted a Penn Hills man of fatally shooting a mother and her son nearly two years ago and wounding a third person.
Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Beth Lazarra will sentence Andre Lamar Olive Davis, 22, to a mandatory sentence of life without parole on June 4.
Davis was charged with homicide for the murders of Angela Proctor, 51, and her son, Manning Proctor, 22, on March 13, 2012.
The jury also convicted Davis of attempted homicide and aggravated assault for wounding his longtime friend, Andre Frazier.
Police said Davis opened fire during an argument about money. They believed Frazier was the target and Davis killed the Proctors because they were witnesses.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
