Witness placed under bail and monitoring

BETHLEHEM – An eastern Pennsylvania judge has taken steps to ensure that a witness appears to testify in his brother’s trial in the mistaken-identity murder of a teenager almost five years ago.

Northampton County President Judge Kimberly McFadden on Friday granted prosecutors’ request to place

24-year-old Algee Macon under protective bail and electronic monitoring when he is released from prison next month after serving an aggravated assault sentence.

Macon is a key witness in the case against 26-year-old Daniel Macon, who is accused of having ordered a hit on rival drug dealers in Bethlehem in December 2006. Authorities said the gunman went to the wrong apartment and shot 15-year-old Kevin Muzila.

Woman charged in husband’s death

SAEGERTOWN – A northwestern Pennsylvania woman has been charged with homicide and assault following the death of her husband, who police said was stabbed in a domestic dispute.

The Erie Times-News said 46-year-old Diedre Stoll was arraigned Friday in Crawford County on the new charges.

She had been arrested after 50-year-old Willis Stoll was stabbed last weekend in their Cussewago Township home.

He died Thursday at UPMC Hamot in Erie, and the county coroner ruled his death a homicide.

Diedre Stoll cried and visibly trembled during her Saegertown arraignment, which had originally been scheduled as a bond hearing.

Public defender Jeffrey Misko said it has not been shown that his client was the aggressor. He said she had filed domestic violence complaints against her husband in the past.
