HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — One of four young men charged with throwing a rock onto a darkened central Pennsylvania interstate says they intended to do some damage but didn’t anticipate their actions would cause severe injuries to an Ohio teacher.
Keefer McGee testified Tuesday against a co-defendant after McGee and the other two waived their right to a preliminary hearing. The judge determined there was enough evidence to send the case against the fourth defendant, Brett Lahr, to county court for trial.
The district attorney says McGee is cooperating in exchange for lesser charges and county jail time rather than a state prison sentence.
McGee says they drove through a corn field and damaged a home’s windows before dropping a rock onto a passing vehicle, striking Sharon Budd in the head.
