Hunter shooting suspect must take property back
QUAKERTOWN, Pa. - January 13, 2011 (WPVI) -- A Bucks County judge has ordered the suspect in the fatal shooting of a hunter to take back property he sold to family for just one dollar.
David Manilla was in court on Thursday morning. He is accused of firing the shot that killed Barry Groh on the first day of deer season in November.
In court, a judge told Manilla that he must take back four properties he sold to his mother and one to his sister in the days after the shooting. Specifically, Manilla and his lawyers were ordered to re-file paperwork to take back ownership of the properties from his relatives.
Manilla also recently completed the sale of his Richland Twp. property to PPL Electric Utilities Corporation for $1.45 million. The judge ordered Manilla to provide detailed accounting of that sale.
Manilla remains free on $2 million dollars bail and faces a preliminary hearing on Jan. 31st. Police say Manilla told officers he mistook Groh for a deer.
This comes just days after Groh's widow filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against Manilla. She claims Manilla is trying to hide his assets.
