Sheldon Jeter, Figure In Rachael DelTondo Murder Case, Accused Of Murdering Man In Aliquippa

ALIQUIPPA (KDKA) -- Sheldon Jeter, a key figure in the murder case of Rachael DelTondo, is accused by State Police of killing a man in Aliquippa.

The victim, Tyric Pugh, was found dead on May 15 around 11:41 p.m. on Kiehl Street. The City of Aliquippa Police said it determined that Pugh suffered multiple gunshot wounds.

Beaver County State Police are currently investigating the homicide case. The agency said as a result of its investigation, it is accusing Sheldon Jeter of allegedly killing Pugh as of May 16.

According to the criminal complaint, Jeter told State Police that he had been with Pugh earlier that evening. State Police say surveillance footage shows that Jeter went to get ice cream with Pugh and two other friends Friday evening and that his vehicle was seen leaving Kiehl Street shortly after Pugh was shot.

Jeter made national headlines a few years ago. He was considered to be a person of interest in Rachael DelTondo's murder, but he was not never charged with anything.

Sources have told KDKA that Pugh's murder case is completely unrelated to the case of Rachael DelTondo.
