Related Trial Slated For Man Convicted In Daughter’s Death

/ WDAC

WILLIAMSPORT (AP) – A man convicted in the death of his 12-year-old daughter, who was shot by a constable serving eviction papers, is scheduled to go on trial soon in a related charge. Jury selection is scheduled Sept. 27 in Lycoming County for the trial of 60-year-old Donald Meyer Jr. on a charge of illegal possession of a firearm. The charge was severed from the main case in which the Duncannon resident was convicted in July of third-degree murder, aggravated assault and other counts. The trial was moved from Perry County due to pretrial publicity. Perry County authorities said he pointed a loaded rifle at the constable, who fired a shot that went through Meyer’s arm and killed Ciara Meyer in January 2016. Meyer is awaiting sentencing.
