KITTANNING (AP) — State police say the girlfriend of a man charged with killing his father in Pennsylvania has now also been charged in the case.

Police in Armstrong County said 28-year-old Cheyanna Lebaron, of East Brady, was charged with criminal homicide Saturday night.

Authorities earlier said Lebaron told investigators that 30-year-old George Burdette III attacked his 59-year-old father, George Jr., early Wednesday in the Sugarcreek Township trailer they shared over something the older man said about her.

Police alleged that she helped him drive the body to a wooded area where it was dumped, and he set fire to the trailer to hide evidence.

It was unclear whether Lebaron had an attorney. A message left Sunday at one number listed for her wasn't immediately returned and another number rang unanswered.
