UPDATE: Victim's Name Released in Wellsburg Murder
A man allegedly murdered by a teenage girl in Wellsburg last week has been identified as Donald Bartz.
A 16-year-old girl was arrested on Friday morning after the Brooke County Sheriff's Department responded to a domestic call on Thursday night on Irongate Drive in Wellsburg, where they found Bartz dead inside the home.
The Wellsburg Police Department and West Virginia State Police also responded to the scene.
Authorities are not releasing the girl's name due to the fact that she is a juvenile. Brooke County Prosecutor Joe Barki said, "The intention is to move forward to transfer her to adult jurisdiction, however that process takes a while."
