Police check cellphones, video in ex-teacher's shooting

ALIQUIPPA, Pa. — A Pennsylvania prosecutor says investigators are searching surveillance video and cellphones for clues in the shooting death of a former schoolteacher in her mother's driveway.

Authorities say 33-year-old Rachael DelTondo was shot multiple times Sunday in Aliquippa (al-uh-KWIH'-puh), in suburban Pittsburgh.

Television station KDKA quoted unidentified investigators as saying they believed the woman knew her attacker and that the killing was likely a "crime of passion."

Beaver County District Attorney David Lozier is declining to comment on a possible motive or whether she may have known the gunman.

DelTondo was suspended in November from a cyber school. Officials there had received an anonymous email containing a police report saying DelTondo had been found in a parked car with a 17-year-old former student. No charges were filed, and Lozier called the report's circulation "a personal vendetta" against DelTondo.

___

This story has been corrected to show that statements that the killing was a "crime of passion" and that the victim likely knew the killer were made by unidentified investigators quoted by TV station KDKA, not the prosecutor. It was also corrected to show DelTondo's age was 33, not 32.
