PA: Jury Aquits Dion Beard Jr. of Murder and Manslaughter, Judge gives Maximum Sentence for Reckless Endangerment

Beard made the mistake of fleeing the scene, hiding his handgun, and avoiding authorities for several days.

According to trial testimony, Beard walked from his aunt's West Maple Street home to the corner store at Maple and Manor to buy milk for his 1-year-old son. After leaving the store, Beard encountered Smith hanging out nearby and fatally shot him.

Beard told jurors that Smith had been threatening to hurt and kill him for years, and that things had escalated. He said Smith followed him to three different areas of the city that day.
