Coraopolis Man to Stand Trial for McKees Rocks Homicide

A 19-year-old accused of killing a McKees Rocks man was found hiding in his mother's Moon Township home.

A Coraopolis teen will stand trial for the killing of a 61-year-old McKees Rocks man.

Sean Overton, 19, was held for court on Feb. 22 on charges of criminal homicide and robbery. A charge of tampering with evidence was dismissed. He appeared in district court in McKees Rocks borough. 

Overton is accused in the killing of McKees Rocks resident Isaiah Dent, who was found dead Jan. 28 in his apartment with blunt trauma to his head and puncture wounds on his face. 

Allegheny County Police found Overton on Jan. 30 at his mother's Cedar Drive home in Moon Township's Mooncrest neighborhood. 

Court records indicate Overton's address is in Coraopolis, though county police said the teen has ties to Pittsburgh's West End and McKees Rocks. A formal arraignment is scheduled for March 26. 

Overton is held without bail in the Allegheny County Jail due to the nature of his charges.
