A 15-year-old Pennsylvania boy who killed his father's pregnant fiancee and her unborn child when he was just 11 is scheduled for his first juvenile court review next month.

Jordan Brown, of Wampum, was found delinquent, the juvenile court equivalent of a guilty verdict, in the February 2009 deaths of 26-year-old Kenzie Houk and her unborn son.

Houk was shot in the back of the head with Brown's .20-gauge youth model shotgun in bed. At the time, she was engaged to Jordan Brown's father, Christopher Brown, and 8½ months pregnant with his son.

Brown's attorneys fought efforts to try the boy as an adult, which could have resulted in a life sentence.

Instead, he'll remain under court supervision until he's 21 and his status will be reviewed every six months. Nov. 2 is the first time that will happen.
