POTTER TOWNSHIP, CENTRE COUNTY - Centre County District Attorney Stacey Parks Miller said that investigators need more time to test a shotgun that could have been used to kill a Centre County man.
The shotgun was found in April 2010, during a search party at the home of the late Samuel Boob.
Boob was found shot and killed at his home in August 2009.
Investigators were unable to find the murder weapon until the community came together to look for it in an officially organized search party, at the Boob home.
Parks Miller believes the found gun was the gun used to kill Boob, but she says that prosecutors need more time to complete the forensic testing. The initial deadline set was May 1st. She's asking for 30 more days.
The wife of the victim, Mirinda Boob, and an alleged conspirator, Ronald Heichel, have been charged with the murder of Samuel Boob.
Lawyers for Heichel said they were fine with granting the investigators more time to test the gun.
The attorney for Mirinda Boob objected to the District Attorney's request, according to court papers.
