Man Held In York County Ex-Girlfriend’s Death

MOUNT WOLF (AP) – A New York man has been jailed in the death of his ex-girlfriend and the related robbery of her mother’s York County home. Police say 18-year-old Edia Lawrence of the Bronx used a ball bat to beat Ahshantianna Johnson about 3 a.m. March 25. That’s when police say Lawrence and two still-unidentified men broke into Johnson’s mother’s home and made the woman call Johnson and tell her to come home. Police say Lawrence believed the 19-year-old Mount Wolf woman had stolen money that he earned dealing drugs. The couple had dated and been classmates in high school. Johnson never regained consciousness and died five days after she was beaten. Lawrence was charged with criminal homicide, conspiracy, robbery, and other counts.
