BEAVER FALLS, Pa. (AP) — A 14-year-old western Pennsylvania boy has been ordered to stand trial on charges he fatally shot a woman after she told him to “get a job” when he tried to bum a cigarette off her boyfriend.

The teen, of Beaver Falls, was held for court after a preliminary hearing Tuesday. Two other boys, aged 14 and 13, who were allegedly with him when he shot 22-year-old Kayla Peterson are being tried in juvenile court.

Investigators say the teens followed Peterson’s boyfriend home and yelled profanities after he ignored their requests for a cigarette. The 14-year-old allegedly shot Peterson when she confronted the youths as her boyfriend arrived home.

That man, William Bailey, testified Tuesday that Peterson told him she loved him and their 2-year-old daughter as she died in his arms Dec. 8.
