• Half-brothers ordered to split $1M lottery prize


    A central Pennsylvania jury is ordering two brothers feuding over $1 million in lottery winnings to split it.

    The jury settled the fight in favor of Ira Sharp, who sued his half-brother after the men purchased a scratch-off ticket while drinking in a Mechanicsburg bar last year. The decision came at the end of a two-day trial in Cumberland County court.

    Charles Meehan kept the prize money and maintained that the two never discussed cashing in the ticket together. Pennlive.com reported that Sharp said he gave Meehan $20 to buy the scratch-off ticket with the understanding that they would split any winnings.

     A tearful Sharp said "justice has been served" after the hearing. Meehan declined comment.
