A high school girl repeatedly begged for mercy while she was being tortured by her companions who finally took her outside, forced her to strip and shot her in the back of the head so she couldn't tell authorities what happened, Allegheny County Police said Tuesday. Rodney Lee Burton, 21, of the 1500 block of Oak Street, North Braddock, and Brittany Williams, 19, of the 200 block of McCutcheon Lane, Penn Hills, were arrested on charges of criminal homicide for the shooting death early Sunday of Dana Marie Pliakas, 17, of Murrysville.
Services are scheduled this afternoon for Pliakas, a junior at Franklin Regional High School, whose body was found at the bottom of the concrete steps leading from Electric Avenue in North Braddock to the Route 30 viaduct.
County Police Superintendent Kenneth Fulton said Pliakas and a companion went to a party Saturday at Burton's home where partygoers drank rum and smoked marijuana before the abuse and torture began.
"Why are you doing this to me?" Pliakas repeatedly cried as Williams assaulted her with a leather belt, her fists and a plastic bottle containing laundry detergent, a witness told detectives according to an affidavit of probable cause.
Williams continued the assault while Pliakas begged for mercy, the unidentified witness told detectives, according to the affidavit.
Burton, who is accused of firing the fatal shot, told reporters yesterday that he didn't shoot anyone.

Does anybody remember Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson traveling to Pittsburgh and holding vigils or rallies?
If you didn't, maybe it was because the victim was white.
That’s horrific, barbaric. How long did the vermon get?
If the President had a seventeen year old daughter, she could look like that!
They look like pillars of the community alright.
Mentioned Dana yesterday. Truly evil. Found naked and shot in the back of the head at the bottom of the city steps.
But not MSM newsworthy.

According to this, both life without parole:
These two murderous animals were convicted and given life in prison without parole. Why were these two murderers not executed?
Now society has to pay to house them the rest of their lives, providing them with room and board, free medical and dental, etc.
“If you didn’t, maybe it was because the victim was white.”
And whites are too busy watching Dancing with the Stars.
Which is why we get what we deserve.
I’m ready to roll are you?
Too bad it wasn't in Texas where they could have got the death penalty!
[And whites are too busy watching Dancing with the Stars.

I think it is the women who get all gaga over Dancing With The Stars, and men like NASCAR and sports.
I don’t watch either, spend too much time watching and reading news and then have to take breaks because it gets stressful - other than spreading the news, what can one woman do?
Woodfork looks like he could be Obama’s son.
If Obama had a son.
other than spreading the news, what can one woman do?
How often doe we spread the new?
Maybe once every three years?
We should all be posting these kinds of crime here daily.
I have posted the Durham Tire Store shooting 3x’s.
99.99% of Freepers could care less.
The biggest issue is : how pure is a candidate vs the Jesus ( aka Reagan test ).
We are getting what we have worked for and deserve.
Thank you!! Life w/o parole!
