We’re learning more information about the New Castle man who was arrested for a homicide earlier this week.
State police say 36-year-old Shane McDevitt is facing charges for killing his mother, 65-year-old Cecelia Liposky in New Castle. McDevitt allegedly admitted to police that he hit his mother in the head several times after an argument surrounding his drug addiction.
McDevitt was also wanted on charges here in Butler County. Last week, state police said that they were looking for McDevitt, who had stolen a credit card and jar of change from a Fenelton man.
He was arraigned on multiple charges yesterday, including criminal homicide.
