Suspect in Pennsylvania casino worker’s slaying surrenders

UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) – State police say man suspected of fatally shooting a Pennsylvania casino worker has turned himself in.

Terry Walker surrendered to troopers at the Uniontown barracks early Friday.

The 45-year-old Uniontown man is charged in the death last Saturday of 35-year-old Mya Ann Grady.

PennDOT snow plow drivers found her shot in the head by along the berm of Route 40 on Summit Mountain.

The highway leads from Uniontown up the mountain to Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, where Grady worked at the Lady Luck Casino.

Police searched for Walker after they couldn’t find him after surrounding his home.

Walker’s lawyer tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette he came voluntarily to face the charges and that his version of events obviously differs from police.
