W. Pa. Brother Jailed In Shooting Of Visiting Kin

AVELLA, Pa. (AP) – A southwestern Pennsylvania man has been jailed in the shotgun slaying of his older brother, who was visiting from West Virginia.

The Washington County coroner says 47-year- old Richard Bauduin died of a blast to the head at the home of his father, 75-year- old Richard Bauduin Sr. and the suspect, 46-year-old Robert Bauduin.

The men’s’ father told police he was cooking a meal in the kitchen about 7 p.m. when he heard his sons arguing before the gunshot.

Police say Richard Bauduin was visiting from Colliers, W.Va.

Family members say the brothers often argued and that Richard – the alleged victim – often mediated disputes between his father and the brother accused of shooting him.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Robert Bauduin, who faces a preliminary hearing Wednesday on a charge of criminal homicide.
