DA: Too much info released on East Liberty double-murder


PITTSBURGH (AP) (AP)ong> - Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala Jr. is criticizing Pittsburgh officials for release of what he calls "entirely too much information" about the murders of two sisters of an Iowa state lawmaker.

Zappala  said Wednesday that "There's no upside to telling a murderer before he's apprehended everything you know."

Mayor Bill Peduto told Channel 11’s news exchange partners at TribLIVE that if the district attorney is concerned about leaks, he should reach out so an internal investigation could be started. He said both he and Zappala are committed to protecting the community.

Forty-three-year-old Allen Wade was charged earlier this month with homicide and robbery in the deaths of Sarah and Susan Wolfe, who were found shot to death Feb. 7. They are sisters of Democratic Rep. Mary Wolfe, of Clinton.
