Murder Suspect Found Guilty


A Richland Township man accused of strangling and stabbing his girlfriend in March 2015 has been found guilty of first and second degree murder.

Investigators say David Johnson killed Allison Vaughn in their home after she refused to allow him to withdraw money from her bank account to purchase drugs.

This was a non-jury trial.  The judge announced his decision just after 2 p.m. Wednesday.

Tribune Democrat reporter Jocelyn Brumbaugh has been  providing updates since the trial started last week.

The death penalty face will begin Thursday in Cambria County Court.
