Schuylkill County man charged in bizarre homicide heading to trial

WEST MAHANOY TWP., Pa. - A Schuylkill County man is heading to trial on assault charges after another man was found dead from blunt force injuries possibly inflicted with a deer antler trophy.

Thomas Petrousky waived his preliminary hearing Wednesday.

Police have identified him as a suspect, but haven't charged him, in the homicide of David Halaburda.

Halaburda's body was discovered at a home in the 200 block of Wylam Street in West Mahanoy Township last month.

Petrousky is charged with assault on a neighbor the same day that Halaburda died.
