St. Clair, PA, Halkovich murder
Posted by: Marilyn (ID *****9740) Date: May 10, 2002 at 16:44:06

The following is copied from

Mary Krill (nee Halkovich) had a brother named Leo, a sister named Theresa, and another sister named Anna. Mary Krillís mother, Mrs. Halkovich, was a saloonkeeper and owned the saloon located next door to our house on Nicholas Street.

One Christmas time, Maryís motherís boyfriend became upset because of a third party in their relationship. He brought a gun into Mrs. Halkovichís saloon and ended up shooting two of the customers. One died and one survived. After the shooting in the saloon, he then went over to the Halkovich house looking for Mrs. Halkovich.

The gunman knocked on the back door of the home. The son Leo opened the door, the gunman fired into the house and Anna Halkovich, a young single woman who was studying nursing in Philadelphia, was fatally shot in the chest. At that point, Mary Halkovich (Krill) stepped up to the gunman and he did not fire the gun. Meanwhile, somebody had followed the gunman. This person took a full bottle of milk from my motherís porch, crept up behind the murderer and smashed the bottle of milk atop the gunmanís head and knocking him unconscious.

For committing the murder of Anna Halkovich, the gunman (according to my mother), instead of getting the electric chair, received a relatively light prison sentence Ė something like 1 to 20 years.
