Friends raise money for homicide victim's sister

ALSACE TWP., Pa. - Friends of a man who lost his life during an argument with another man early Friday morning are working to raise money to cover his funeral expenses.

Timothy Reber was shot and killed outside his girlfriend's home on Beckers Road in Alsace Twp., Berks Co.

"We are all still mourning the death of his mother just six months earlier," said Jesse Anthony. "My friends and I have set up a website and plan to do various fundraisers to help his younger sister, Brittany, with the funeral costs. No child should pay to bury their mother and brother."

The friends have also established a Facebook page in Reber's memory.

State police identified Robert Pfanders as a suspect in Reber's killing.

Pfanders, 25, of Boyertown, confronted Reber about an argument Reber had with his girlfriend Thursday night, said police, who added that Pfanders then pulled out a handgun and shot Reber.

Pfanders is facing charges of criminal homicide and first degree murder.
