Manslaughter alleged in Connellsville woman's shooting

| Monday, Aug. 12, 2013, 8:45 a.m.

A Connellsville man will face an involuntary manslaughter charge after the death of a Connellsville woman early Sunday morning in Bullskin Township, Fayette County, according to state police.

Kylie Marie Sage, 23, was found in the driver's seat of a truck parked along North Bell View Road around 2:30 a.m., state police said in a news release. She was pronounced dead at the scene at 6 a.m., police said.

Sage had told Jeremy Paul Hamborsky, 24, earlier in the day about buying a gun on Saturday, police said. While sitting in the truck together, police said, Sage handed the new gun to Hamborsky, who removed it from its holster and asked if it was loaded. She said it was not loaded, according to state police.

Hamborsky “then worked the action of the firearm by holding it in his right hand and racking the slide back with his left hand,” police said in a news release. When the slide returned, the gun discharged one round, striking Sage underneath her right armpit and through her body, ultimately causing her death, the news release stated.

Hamborsky was arraigned by District Judge Randy Abraham, and bond was set at $50,000. An official at Fayette County Jail said Sunday night that Hamborsky paid bond.

Hamborsky faces a preliminary hearing in front of District Judge Ronald J. Haggerty Jr. on Thursday.
