LANCASTER – A Lancaster County teen charged with killing her sister last year had her petition to move her case to juvenile court denied by a judge. The case involving 16-year-old Claire Miller will remain in adult court. Homicides are not considered delinquent acts in PA, but minor defendants can petition to have the case heard in juvenile court. Miller was 14 at the time she stabbed her 19-year-old sister, Helen. Miller called 911 and reported that she had killed her sister to police around 1 a.m. at her family’s home in the 1500 block of Clayton Road in Manheim Township. Judge David Workman sided with the Commonwealth’s argument stating “it is not in the public interest to transfer Claire Miller to the juvenile court.” Miller was remanded to the Lancaster Youth Intervention detention program where she will remain until her next hearing.
