Allegheny County Police today found a 19-year-old man wanted on homicide charges in Moon Township's Mooncrest neighborhood.
Sean Overton, who has ties to both the West End and McKees Rocks, was taken into custody just before 11 a.m. today after police located him at his mother's Cedar Drive home.
The teen is charged with the slaying of McKees Rocks artist and peace activist Isaiah Dent, according to a county police statement.
Dent, 61, was found dead Monday morning in his McKees Rocks apartment after family members requested that police conduct a welfare check at his residence. He was found with blunt trauma to his head and puncture wounds on his face.
Overton, who is accused of beating Dent to death, is lodged at the Allegheny County Jail and awaits arraignment on homicide charges.
