Bail lowered for shooting suspect

Friday, April 4, 2014, 5:39 p.m.
 

A Westmoreland County judge lowered bail on Friday for a Jeannette man charged with firing a weapon into a city home and injuring a woman.

Dionne Lee McKelvin's bail was reduced from $500,000 to $100,000 by Judge Alfred B. Bell, according to a court order.

Noting McKelvin's criminal record, Bell rejected a motion by defense attorney Brian Aston to put his client on house arrest.

McKelvin, 35, is scheduled to stand trial in May on charges of attempted homicide, aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person and discharging a firearm into an occupied structure.

McKelvin fired shots that hit the woman in her North First Street home and other nearby residences about 10:30 p.m. Nov. 26, Jeannette police said.

The victim, who attended the hearing, was struck in the arm and chest during the drive-by shooting, according to the criminal complaint.
