Brandi (Montgomery) Dunn Murder Case Moves to New "Courtroom"

As reported by The Herald (Sharon, PA), the murder trial of Scott Dunn will be held in the Borough Council chambers of the Grove City borough building. The courtroom of District Justice Lawrence Silvis was deemed to be too small for the anticipated crowd.
Intense community and media attention focused on the case prompted the move to the larger venue. The hearing is set for June 27 and 28.

Dunn, 27, of 469 Branchton Road, Slippery Rock, is accused of beating his wife Brandon “Brandi” C. Dunn, 22, to death and setting fire to her body inside her parents’ home at 109 E. Washington Blvd. the morning of Jan. 14.

Dunn is facing charges of criminal homicide, abuse of a corpse and three counts of arson. He has been held in the Mercer County Jail without bond since his arrest April 10. In Pennsylvania, anyone charged with a crime that carries a potential life or death sentence — like homicide — is not eligible for bail.
