Somerset County man charged with killing girlfriend
A Somerset County man was arraigned on homicide and related charges in the death of his girlfriend.
State and Windber police allege Denver Roy Alan Blough, 25, fatally shot Caressa Kovalcik, 23, about 6:50 p.m. Saturday in their borough apartment.
Blough was arraigned early Sunday before District Judge Susan Mankamyer and is being held in the Somerset County Jail without bail. The couple lives in a 19th Street apartment with their 11-month-old son. Police did not say if the boy was home at the time of the shooting.
In addition to homicide, police charged Blough with attempted homicide, aggravated assault, simple assault and reckless endangerment. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 11 before District Judge William Seger.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
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.
