A baby-faced 11-year-old Pennsylvania boy killed his father's pregnant fiancée with a kiddie shotgun - and then hopped on the bus to school, authorities said yesterday.

Jordan Brown allegedly shot Kenzie Houk, 26, in the back of the head as she lay in her bed in the family home in Wampum, Pa. - a rural area about 45 miles from Pittsburgh - Friday at around 8 a.m., in an apparent jealous rage over the baby on the way.

"There was an issue with jealousy. He told my son stuff," said Houk's brother-in-law, Jason Kraner, 34, who described the boy as "rough."

"He actually told my son that he wanted to do that to her."

The fifth-grader then took a school bus to Mohawk Elementary, leaving the victim, who was eight months pregnant, to die, according to New Castle State Police Lt. Steve Ignatz.

Houk's 4-year-old daughter, who was eating breakfast and watching cartoons as the bloodshed unfolded, made the startling discovery about an hour later.

The terrified child ran outside in her pajamas and told tree-trimmers her mom was dead.

Houk's unborn child - a 7-pound, 4-ounce boy - died minutes after his mom from lack of oxygen, said Lawrence County Coroner Russell Noga.

Brown was yanked out of school at 11 a.m. and questioned by State Police, said Lawrence County District Attorney John Bongivengo.

Initially, the boy told police he'd seen a suspicious black truck on the property, sending investigators on a wild goose chase for several hours.

But the story fell apart when police re-interviewed Houk's daughter, 7, who was also at home at the time of the shooting.

The girl said she "heard a loud bang" and saw Brown with what she thought was a shotgun, according to Bongivengo.

A "youth"-sized 20-guage rifle, a model designed for children for which registration is not required, was later found in the home, investigators said. Relatives said the boy hunted regularly with his father.

At about 3:30 a.m., Brown was arrested and charged as an adult with two counts of criminal homicide, officials said.

The victim's distraught father, Jack, was trying to make sense of the bloodshed.

"An 11-year-old kid - what would give him the motive to shoot someone?" he asked.

"Maybe he was just jealous of my daughter and the baby and thought he would be overpowered."

The horrific shooting also baffled other relatives, who told The Post yesterday that Houk lived happily with Jordan and his dad, Chris Brown.

"Kenzie loved [Jordan]," said Alaina Kraner, Kenzie's sister-in-law. "She was a part of the family. We've all gone camping together and he wasn't a bad kid or anything.

"Kenzie never had problems with Jordan. Everybody got along with Kenzie, especially kids.
My Two Cents -
When is the public going to open thier eyes?
When you were growing up how many of these kinds of stories did you hear in your childhooh?
None? Me either !!
Children were jealous back then as well... children didn't want to get spanked back then as well (refering to the case out in texas where the allegations were that the 8 yeaar old shot his father and his fathers friend because he did't want to get spanked again...
People wake up! What is going on in our world with Child Services .. Parent Alienation and with the big pharma co's drugging our children is and will continue to cause destruction of families well into the next FEW generations!
When will we as parents say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH - Get out of our lives and let us raise our children!!
Of course there are parent's that should be sterilized and never even allowed to lay eyes on thier children again.. but those are few and far between - the rest of the destruction is because of money! Did this child kill the fathers girlfriend because of money - of course not - but if our socioty were as it is.. I'll bet that childs thoughts of killing this prenant woman would have stayed just that.. the thoughts of a child jealous that he will have to share his paren't love!
