Son pleads not guilty in fatal shooting of his mother

Erie County District Attorney's Office

An Eden man has been arraigned in State Supreme Court on an indictment charging him with killing his mother.

The Erie County District Attorney's Office says Wayne Kozak, 49, pleaded not guilty before Justice John Michalski to second degree murder and was remanded to jail without bail.

Wayne Kozak, 49, was found in an Erie, PA motel several hours after his mother, Mary Kozak, 79, was found shot to death in her East Eden Road home in the afternoon of April 20.

Mark Wozniak, WBFO's local All Things Considered host, has been at WBFO since mid-1978.
