NEW BRIGHTON, Pa. (AP) – Authorities say a Pennsylvania bride fatally shot her niece in an argument that took place during a wedding party.

Police allege that 30-year-old Christina George-Harvan, of Conway, used her new husband’s handgun to shoot 21-year-old Katelyn “Kaytee” Francis, of Fairmont, W.Va., on Thursday night. Francis was shot outside in a bar in New Brighton, about 30 miles north of Pittsburgh.

Police say the trio argued inside the bar about who would drive. They say George-Harvan, who was married earlier in the day, shot her niece in the parking lot at about 10 p.m.

George-Harvan is being held in the county jail without bond. No attorney is listed in court papers.
