Hearing set for DeAbreu


Luzerne County Judge David W. Lupas scheduled a hearing on April 12 on request by Angelina DeAbreu to move her trial to another county or to impanel a jury in another county to decide her fate.


DeAbreu, 31, through her attorney, Thomas Marsilio, states pre-trial publicity about her case would affect her right to a fair trial.


City police allege DeAbreu covered up the fatal shooting death of Tyler Winstead, 14, inside her home on Hill Street on April 5. Winstead was found outside the house and died at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains Township.


DeAbreu’s son, Elijah Yusiff, 14, was charged with an unknown offense in juvenile court.


DeAbreu is facing a trial in May on charges of providing false reports to law enforcement, tampering with evidence and child corruption. She remains free on $2,500 unsecured bail.
