MEADVILLE -- Brandy M. Stevens, 20, was still alive but probably beyond feeling pain when a woman she had loved helped to bury her.
Jade N. Olmstead, 18, and her new lover, Ashley M. Barber, told police that they invited Stevens to their Cochranton-area home on May 17 and then savagely beat and choked her and buried her in a grave they had waiting, state police Trooper Eric Mallory testified during a preliminary hearing for the two women Wednesday.
Both will stand trial on charges of homicide and conspiracy to commit homicide, Vernon Township District Judge Michael Rossi ruled. Mallory testified that Barber and Olmstead admitted to the killing and described their relationship and their relationship to the victim in separate interviews with police.
Olmstead greeted Stevens and lured her into the woods near the home that she shared with Barber and Barber's parents in Wayne Township, to see a crude fort that she and Ashley Barber were building. Barber was hiding there. At the fort, the two women began punching and kicking Stevens and stuffed a "Saw" cap into her mouth to stop her pleading for her life and screaming.
"They said they were freaking out from her screams," Mallory said.
Stevens was knocked to the ground by the two women. Barber put a rope around her neck and strangled her while Olmstead alternately hit her in the head with a shovel and helped to choke her, Mallory said.
Barber also repeatedly pounded Stevens' head against a stump and told police that a bruise on her own forehead came from head-butting Stevens' besides.

Homos(exuals)are supposed to be kind and loving, no??
Homosexuals have a reputation for committing especially brutal murders when they decide to attack former lovers.
We all must exercise tolerance for this alternative lifestyle. They were just expressing their inborn “gay” nature.
Would this be considered a Hate Crime?
Proof that Homosexuality should still be classified as a mental illness.
This is the first I’ve heard of this. . . and I’m well read.
. . . I wonder why has this story been buried?
Lesbians....who would have guessed from that picture:)
In Erie, Pennsylvania?
I doubt it because it was done within a protected demographic by memebers of that demographic so they would get a pass on that./s What it is, is 1st degree premeditated murder. In a sane society that would be don't pass, go don't collect $200 go straight to a gurney and a needle. Unfortunately the taxpayers will most likely end up supporting these two on death row till they die of old age.
And these people are called “gay”?
No, homosexual doesnt equal murderer however have yet to meet any who seem happy.
Those whacky fun loving Lesbians at it again! What new hijinks will they think up next??
All Hell is breaking out.
Sometimes you can just look at someone and tell they are mean.
That is especially true of the one with the longer face but the other one too, just not quite as obvious.
that lesbian in Nebraska, in that obvious hoax attack
(by 3 men, that she can’t identify in any way,
not even their race ?)
...she gets 1000 people come out to support her,
and give donations.
while the dead lesbian, gets ignored.
His friend said that was the first thing they found at a murder scene that would indicate "homosexual" involvement.
The "messy-er" the murder, the more likely it was homosexual "love triangle" gone bad...
That about sums it up. The rot of America eminates from Mordor-on-the-Potomac.
