Lawyer: Girl had no role in her parents’ murders

November 23, 2005


— A 14-year-old girl who ran off with her boyfriend after he allegedly gunned down her parents did not know that he was going to kill them, her lawyer said Tuesday.

"All she is, is a witness. And a victim to the extent that her parents were killed," the attorney, Robert Beyer, said in a telephone interview.

Beyer spoke out a day after prosecutors said Kara Borden had fled willingly with David Ludwig. He said Borden had no role in the shootings of Michael and Cathryn Borden inside their Lititz home on Nov. 13.

"It's Ludwig's case, not hers," Beyer said. He declined to discuss the case further.

Ludwig, 18, is being held without bail, awaiting a Dec. 16 preliminary hearing on murder charges.
