2 women paroled after pleas in 2012 drug-related slaying in western Pennsylvania mobile home


GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania — Two women have been paroled after pleading guilty to charges stemming from the drug-related slaying of a man in western Pennsylvania almost two years ago.

Twenty-four-year-old Tiffany Blattenberger and 25-year-old Danielle Clawson each pleaded guilty Thursday in Westmoreland County to robbery conspiracy. They were sentenced to about one to two years but were credited with 14 months served following arrest and paroled.

The two were originally charged with murder and homicide in the December 2012 death of 24-year-old Matthew Volk in a Derry Township mobile home, but those charges were dismissed last year.

Forty-four-year-old Jesus Santiago pleaded guilty to robbery and conspiracy and was sentenced to 3½ to seven years. The robbery target, 22-year-old Ronell Moses Jr., pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and was sentenced to six to 12 years.
