YORK, Pa. (AP) - A sheriff’s deputy says a damaged handgun was found in a shed belonging to a man on trial in the shooting death of a woman in central Pennsylvania 3½ years ago.

Deputy Richard Reincke III testified in York County on Wednesday that part of the pistol barrel found on 41-year-old Timothy Jacoby’s property had been “ground or filed … probably with an electric grinder.”

Jacoby is charged in the March 2010 shooting death of 55-year-old Monica Schmeyer. Prosecutors say they believe she was killed in a botched robbery, and they plan to seek the death penalty if Jacoby is convicted of first-degree murder.

Defense attorney Brian Perry suggested that Schmeyer was killed by someone who was angry with her, and his client and the victim didn’t know each other.
