Newtown Township, PA – The 22-year-old man who killed his father in their Newtown Township home earlier this year pleaded guilty on Thursday, Nov. 17, 2022, and will spend the next 30 to 60 years in state prison.

Jordan Matthew Kurman, of Newtown Township, pleaded guilty to third-degree murder, aggravated assault, possession of an instrument of crime, recklessly endangering another person, simple assault, and criminal mischief for the murder of his father Gregory A. Kurman on April 29, 2022.

At Thursday’s hearing, Kurman’s younger brother tearfully detailed the devastation the murder caused their family. “The world feels cold and empty without him,” he said.

Reading victim impact statements written by himself and his mother, the younger Kurman described their father as a caring and compassionate man who would do anything to protect their family, which included trying for years to help his son with his mental health issues. Jordan Kurman, he said, was verbally and physically abusive to their parents, and he was so afraid of his older brother that he would lock his bedroom door at night and avoid being alone with him.

After hearing the statements that left some in the courtroom audience sobbing, Common Pleas Judge Charissa J. Liller asked Jordan Kurman if he had anything to say. When he gave a cold apology, Liller said she was not convinced since he only did so after she asked him twice.

“I am appalled that you have no remorse,” she said. “That is frightening to me. I hope you listened to what your brother had to say. It was heartbreaking to listen to him.”

Liller then sentenced Jordan Kurman to 30-60 years in state prison, ordered him to undergo a mental health evaluation and have no contact with his younger brother and his mother. This investigation began when the Newtown Township Police Department was dispatched at 4:56 a.m. on April 29, 2022, to 15 David Drive, Newtown Township, for a report of a male in cardiac arrest.

Upon arrival, police encountered Jordan Kurman in the driveway of the home. Police asked him where the subject in distress was, and he replied inside the house. Responding officers were about to enter the residence when they encountered Merridth Kurman who was yelling for assistance for her husband, Gregory Kurman. She directed officers into the house. Upon their entry to the residence, responding law enforcement personnel observed blood on the floor leading from the foyer area to the living area of the residence. Officers located Gregory Kurman on his back in front of a couch in the living area. Blood was observed on the couch, with the cushions and pillows in disarray. A large, blood-covered kitchen knife was observed on the ground by the victim’s head. Gregory Kurman had a large, deep laceration to his throat and there was a pooling of blood under his head in the area of his neck.

Merridth Kurman stated, in the presence of Newtown Township Police officers, “He killed my husband … he stabbed him to death,” according to a criminal complaint.

Law enforcement personnel exited the home, approached Jordan Kurman, and observed a large amount of blood on his clothing. Police detained Jordan Kurman at this time. Merridth Kurman spoke to Newtown and Bucks County Detectives and said she was upstairs in the residence when she heard screaming and arguing. She went downstairs to investigate the noises and saw her son, Jordan Kurman, drop the knife that police later located next to Gregory Kurman’s head.

Gregory Kurman, 49, was pronounced dead at the scene. In his victim impact statement, Kurman’s brother described his father as a popular dentist in Philadelphia adored by both patients and employees. He said his mother and father met when they were just teenagers, and his death has shattered their lives.

“This is a sad, sad case,” District Attorney Matt Weintraub said. “There are no winners here. We must protect society from this man, and exact punishment for this murder, while balancing that against the surviving family’s wishes. And we have done that.”

19-Year-Old Won’t Be Allowed To Attend Father’s Execution, Judge Rules

Published

A 19-year-old in St. Louis has expressed her dismay after a judge denied her wish to watch her father die by lethal injection. The decision aligns with a Missouri law that prohibits anyone under 21 from witnessing an execution.

Kevin Johnson is scheduled to be executed on Tuesday for the 2005 killing of Officer William McEntee in Kirkwood, Missouri. Johnson’s attorneys have current appeals awaiting as they attempt to stop the execution.

The American Civil Liberties Union had submitted an emergency motion with the court in Kansas City. This came after Johnson’s daughter, Khorry Ramey, stated that she wanted to attend the execution. The ACLU argued that the age requirement had no affect on safety and witnessing the execution is Ramey’s constitutional right.

However, on Friday, Judge Brian C. Wimes determined that Ramey’s constitutional rights wouldn’t be violated by law.

“It’s excruciating to know that I’m about to lose my dad all over again when the state of Missouri kills him. Yet, I can’t be present for his death simply because of my age,” Ramey noted in a statement.

“…my dad is the most important person in my life. He has been there for me my whole life even though he’s been incarcerated.”

The judge was aware that the law may cause emotional damage for Ramey. However, he determined that was just one part of the court’s findings, and the law was constitutional.

Ramey is hoping that Gov. Michael Parson will grant her dad clemency. Johnson’s attorneys have been attempting to stop his execution. They have admitted his guilt but believe that racism was involved in the decision to be put him to death. Johnson is Black, and McEntee was white.

Johnson’s lawyers also say that a mental illness and the fact that he was 19 at the time should have been factors in the decision. In 2005, the Supreme Court prohibited the execution of individuals younger than 18 at the time of the offense. Thus, more courts have moved away from giving teens the death penalty.

“The surviving victims of Johnson’s crimes have waited long enough for justice. Every day longer that they must wait is a day they are denied the chance to finally make peace with their loss,” a state petition read.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry will depose Dr. Anthony Fauci in their lawsuit against the federal government for allegedly colluding with social media companies to censor speech.

“Tomorrow, along with my colleague from Louisiana, my Office and I will depose Dr. Anthony Fauci in our lawsuit against the Biden Administration for allegedly colluding with social media companies to censor freedom of speech,” said Attorney General Schmitt. “Since we filed our landmark lawsuit, we have uncovered documents and discovery that show clear coordination between the Biden Administration and social media companies on censoring speech, but we’re not done yet. We plan to get answers on behalf of the American people. Stay tuned.”

“We all deserve to know how involved Dr. Fauci was in the censorship of the American people during the COVID pandemic; tomorrow, I hope to find out. And I will continue fighting for the truth as it relates to Big Government colluding with Big Tech to stifle free speech,” said Attorney General Landry.

Missouri and Louisiana filed this lawsuit in May of 2022 and have since received discovery showing that the federal government and the Biden Administration have worked with social media companies to censor speech on topics like COVID-19 and other issues.

A federal court granted Missouri and Louisiana’s request for depositions of top Biden Administration officials on October 21, 2022.

Additionally, a magistrate judge in Virginia rejected former White House press secretary Jen Psaki’s attempt to quash a subpoena in this case and transferred that dispute back to Louisiana.
