The Beaver County bride accused of shooting and killing her niece during a wedding night celebration is scheduled to be released on bail on Friday to await trial.

Christina Nicole George, 30, of Conway faces trial on charges of homicide, aggravated assault and reckless endangerment in the death of Katelyn Francis, 21, of Fairview, W.Va.

George and Jeremy Harvan were married April 24 and celebrated that night at Jimmy K's Bar and Grille in New Brighton.

The three were in the parking lot discussing who should drive home when Francis was shot in the abdomen. George's attorney, Stephen Colafella, said the gun went off accidentally when George tried to move it.

George was held without bail until a hearing Thursday before Common Pleas Judge Harry E. Knafelc, who set bail at $50,000, which was immediately posted by her mother, Julia A. Francis, Colafella said. George will be set up with electronic monitoring, Colafella said.
