Cops: 3 Fayette County residents accused of homicide for fatal Vanderbilt shooting

Michael Coghlan

Three Dawson residents are being held in the Fayette County Prison without bail after being charged by state police this week with homicide for the Sept. 17 shooting of a 29-year-old man in Vanderbilt.

Roy Aller Jr., 20; Sjon-Luc Bochnak, 25, and Peaches Spring Logan, 41, are charged with criminal homicide and robbery by state police in Uniontown in connection with the killing of Tywain J. Reid, who was discovered lying at the intersection of Center and Walnut streets in the borough about 8:49 p.m.

Trooper Richard Sizer reported police found Reid, who formerly lived in North Braddock in Allegheny County, dead of multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Further details on the shooting were not available because the affidavit has been sealed by order of Common Pleas Court Judge Steve P. Leskinen at the request of the District Attorney Richard Bower.

Perry Township District Judge Richard Kasunic II ordered all three held in the county prison without bail pending a preliminary hearing Oct. 9.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
