Pa. Teen Charged With Killing Great- Grandfather
HARVEYS LAKE, Pa. (AP) – A northeastern Pennsylvania teenager is charged in the shooting death of his elderly great-grandfather.
State police say 16-year-old Cody Lee shot and killed 80- year-old Herbert Lee Sr. His body was found by a relative Wednesday. The teen was arrested about 2 a.m. Thursday.
Investigators say one of the teen’s acquaintances saw him struggling with his great-grandfather moments before a shot was fired.
A classmate at Lake- Lehman High School allegedly told police that Lee had discussed a plot to kill Herbert Lee earlier in the day. Investigators say Lee showed the student a notebook that outlined plans to “kill grandpa’’ and then, once his father got home, “kill dad.’’
Lee is in the county jail. It’s not clear if he has an attorney.
