Pennsylvania Auto Glass Shop Receives Visit from Jury in Murder Investigation
April 23, 2013

A western Pennsylvania jury was bused to Ferguson Glass this week where the owner is accused of fatally shooting his mother, sister and elderly aunt, according to local reports.

Kevin Murphy, owner of the auto glass company, was arrested in April 2010 for allegedly murdering Edith Cora Tietge, 81, Kris Lynn Murphy, 43, and Doris Lee Murphy, 69. The three were found dead at the Saltsburg, Pa.-based business on April 23, 2009.

In addition to being family of the accused, all three victims also worked at the business. Though police have not named a motive, court documents say that interviews conducted by investigators have revealed that Murphy has had an ongoing relationship with a married woman for the last two years.

Murphy told investigators that neither his mother nor sister approved of the relationship, according to the police report. On the day of the murders, he "first learned from his paramour that she had received a registered letter indicating the process of her divorce had begun," according to the criminal complaint.
