• Uniontown dad accused in tot's death to stand trial

    Updated:

    UNIONTOWN, Pa. - A southwestern Pennsylvania man has been ordered to stand trial in the death of his 20-month-old daughter last fall.

    Thirty-year-old Domer Burkholder Jr. of Uniontown is charged in Fayette County with criminal homicide and child endangerment in the November death of Caylee Burkholder.

     Twenty-eight-year-old Jessica Burkholder testified emotionally Wednesday in a preliminary hearing that her estranged husband "got angry and punched her in the stomach."

    She waived a single count of endangering the welfare of a child under a tentative plea deal with prosecutors that calls for a six- to 23-month sentence.

    Domer Burkholder declined comment. He has said he wasn't home when his daughter was injured and he rushed her to Uniontown hospital immediately after finding out she was hurt.
