District attorney to seek death penalty in killing of East Liberty sisters who are originally from Clinton


The Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office announced Wednesday it will pursue the death penalty against a man accused in the killings of two sisters in East Liberty – a suburb of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania.

Prosecutors say Allen Wade fatally shot tSusan and Sarah Wolfe, his next-door neighbors, and left their bodies in the basement of the home they shared on Chislett Street. Police found them on Feb. 7 when co-workers reported that they did not appear at work.
The sisters are originally from Clinton and their parents Jack and Pierette live in Clinton and their father operates a law practice. Their sister, Mary Wolfe is involved in the legal practice in Clinton and is the area state representative.
On Wednesday, DA Stephen Zappala’s office said several aggravating circumstances led to them deciding to seek the death penalty.
