Jury selection delayed in trial against man accused of killing Penn Hills officer

Updated:

PITTSBURGH - Jury selection was delayed Monday in trial of a man accused of killing a Penn Hills police officer.

Officer Michael Crawshaw, of Shaler Township, was killed three years ago when he responded to a call about a man with a gun at a Penn Hills home.

Investigators said Ronald Robinson, of Homewood, shot and killed Crawshaw as he waited in his cruiser for backup. Robinson is also accused of killing Danyal Morton.

Officials said jury selection has been postponed until Jan. 28 because a key witness in the case cannot be located.

The district attorney said he will seek the death penalty in the case.
