Bucks County DA Rules Shooting Justifiable
Bucks County District Attorney David Heckler has ruled the shooting death of a Feasterville man justifiable. 50-year-old Kenneth Phillip was killed by a Northampton Township police officer last month less than an hour after he murdered his wife with a shotgun as she sat in the front seat of her car. The daughter of the victim was in the passenger seat of the vehicle as her mother was killed.
