Ashley Barber and Jade Olmstead have been arraigned for the murder of Brandy Stevens-Rosine, popular college student and Olmstead’s former flame. The couple confessed at a preliminary hearing and revealed the horrific details of the murder. Now the prosecutor has determined that the murder, though brutal, was not heinous enough to warrant seeking the death penalty.
Pennsylvania State Police say lovers Jade Olmstead, 18, and Ashley Barber, 20, confessed to the May murder of Brandy Stevens, 20. Stevens’ remains were discovered in a shallow grave near a house in Wayne Township.
