Arrest Nockamixon State Park Teen Shooting; PA Temp Restrictions to Expire; Man Killed By SEPTA El
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

A man has been arrested in the deadly shooting of a teenager at Nockamixon State Park back in October. Bucks County District Attorney Matt Weintraub announced on Wednesday, 12/30, that 52-year-old Kenneth Troy Heller of Warminster is charged with criminal homicide and related charges in the death of 18-year-old Jason Kutt of Sellersville. It happened around 5:15 p.m. Saturday, 10/24, near the Old Ridge Road entrance to the park near Quakertown. Kutt was at the park with his girlfriend watching the sunset when he was shot. Pennsylvania State Game Wardens and State Park Rangers responded to the scene and performed first aid. Kutt was rushed to St. Luke's Hospital where he died days later. His girlfriend reported seeing a man in hunting gear leave the area. Authorities were led to Heller through a series of anonymous tips. Heller was in the park at the time hunting small game, which is permitted at Nockamixon. At a long distance he mistook Kutt as a small animal and shot. The two had no connections. DA Weintraub says that Heller has been offered a plea deal that would give him a maximum or 10-20 years in prison. He is currently being held in Bucks County jail without bail.

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf announced on Wednesday, 12/30, that temporary restrictions imposed earlier this month, 12/12, will expire as planned on Monday, January 4. The stricter measures were put into place as new daily positive cases were surging and hospitals were at risk of becoming overwhelmed by lack of capacity and staff limitations. The 7-day rolling average of new cases peaked in the commonwealth around December 16th and has steadily been decreasing over the past several weeks. The average is down about 3,000 cases-a-day from that peak or roughly 30%. This does not mean that we are out of the woods. Numbers are still very high and we must remain vigilant. The same restrictions from before 12/12 will still apply.

"I am announcing today that the time-limited mitigation orders that went into effect on December 12 will expire as planned on January 4 at 8 a.m.," Wolf said. "That includes the 10 person indoor, 25 person outdoor gathering limits. It includes the ban on indoor operations at restaurants, bars, gyms and entertainment venues and the suspension of extracurricular activities."

"Again, the fight against this dangerous disease is not over, we all need to stay the course and we all need to do everything in our power to slow the spread of COVID-19 and keep our families and our communities safe. There have been some positive signs lately our state wide positivity rate when down this week for the second week in a row. While the number of hospitalizations and deaths remain entirely too high in PA it appears the number of new cases have plateaued."
