A youth pastor in Pennsylvania who got a 17-year-old girl pregnant in 2016 has now been charged with hiring someone to murder his senior pastor and the judge who presided over his case.
The Mercury News reports that 37-year-old Jacob M. Malone allegedly offered to pay a fellow inmate to commit the murders last year while in Laurel Highlands State Correctional Institute.
A teenage girl gave birth to Malone’s child in 2016. Malone was arrested after his senior pastor, Harold Lee Wiggins, reported him to the police. The teenager claimed that Malone had been sexually assaulting her since she started living with him and his family at the age of 17.
