SIX MILE RUN, Pa. (AP) - Authorities have charged a central Pennsylvania woman with shooting her father to death as he was sleeping in his bed.

State police in Bedford County say 48-year-old Christy Zelanko of Six Mile Run is charged in the death of 68-year-old James Zelanko.

Police allege that the defendant shot the victim multiple times with a small-caliber handgun as he slept between 1:30 a.m. and 2 a.m. Wednesday. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Christy Zelanko is charged with first-degree murder, criminal homicide, aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person and possession of instruments of crime.

Court documents don’t list an attorney for her and a listed number in her name couldn’t be found Wednesday.
