Bride Kills Niece over Who Would Be Designated Driver

Police said they were called to Jimmy K’s Bar & Grille on 11th Avenue for reports of a gunshot in the parking lot around 10 p.m., and they found Katelyn Francis on the ground with a gunshot wound to her stomach. The 21-year-old West Virginia woman was flown to UPMC Presbyterian, where she later died.

Police arrested [Christina] George-Harvan [30] and her new husband, Jeremy Harvan. The two were married earlier that day and were out celebrating with friends and family. Francis was a niece of the bride.

“Evidently, the two had just married. They were celebrating their marriage with several friends and relatives,” Van Fossan said.

Police said an argument started between the newlyweds and the victim over who was going to drive, due to the groom’s intoxicated state.

“We believe all three were arguing over who was going to be the designated driver,” Van Fossan said.
