a in NORRISTOWN, Pa. (UPI) A 17-year-old 17-year-old 17-year-old 17-year-old 17-year-old Montgomery County youth, charged with strangling his girlfriend last May 10, has been ordered to stand trial as an adult. After four days of testimony, County Judge Louis D. Stefan Friday rejected a petition by the defense counsel to have the murder trial of Jeffrey Wicker, of Narberth, heard in Juvenile Court. Wicker was accused of strangling Marion Shopa, 15, of , Bala Cynwyd, in the basement of his home. His attorney, John C. Bonner, argued that "warehousing him in an adult institution where he would receive no psychiatric care would pose a greater threat to society if he were to out in 10 or 15 years."
