Trial set for second suspect in Pa. bar killing

November 11, 2013

FARRELL, Pa. (AP) — Jury selection is set to begin for the second of two young men to stand trial on charges of robbing and fatally shooting a western Pennsylvania bar owner.

The (Sharon) Herald (http://bit.ly/180kz4B ) reports that jury selection will begin Tuesday for 19-year-old Devine Campbell, formerly of Farrell.

Twenty-year-old Joshua Stewart was convicted in September on charges including first- and second-degree murder and robbery, and is serving life in prison.

Stewart was 18 when he fatally shot 58-year-old William Basilone Jr. in Farrell on Dec. 30, 2011. The town is about 60 miles northwest of Pittsburgh, where Basilone's owned his self-named bar.

Devine Campbell, 17 at the time, faces charges of second-degree murder, robbery and conspiracy. Campbell is charged with murder because he allegedly participated in the robbery. He has pleaded not guilty.
