Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Ferman has ruled that an Upper Frederick Township man acted in self defense when he shot two men outside his home last December. 42-year-old Angel Gonzalez had the gun. Investigators say he fatally shot 19-year-old Zachary Levin and wounded his stepfather 34-year-old Joshua Levin after the two men attacked him with baseball bats. Gonzalez was living with the estranged wife of the older Levin at the time of the shooting.
Law enforcement officials in Montgomery County have charged a home remodeling contractor with fraud. Investigators say 47-year-old Kenneth Staiger of Wayne in Chester County took more than $100,000 from two customers in Upper Gwynedd and Collegeville and didn't do the work in one case and let the job go unfinished in the other. He was calling his company Admiral Kitchens when he allegedly committed the fraud in 2009. Investigators want to hear from other homeowners who might have complaints about Staiger and say he is still in business operating under the name Renovay Kitchens and Bathrooms.
