Police: Cumberland County man killed pregnant ex-girlfriend

NEW CUMBERLAND — Police say a central Pennsylvania man killed his pregnant ex-girlfriend today, one day before he was due in court on charges of making threats against her.

Investigators said 21-year-old Trisha Edelman was found dead this morning in the apartment of her ex-boyfriend, 25-year-old Adam Trump.

The Cumberland County coroner's office says Edelman was shot in the abdomen. Edelman was 18 weeks pregnant, according to court documents.

Investigators say Trump was found in bed beside the Mechanicsburg woman's body inside the apartment in New Cumberland.

Edelman had a protection of abuse order against Trump, who was scheduled for a court appearance on Thursday stemming from an arrest in July. In that incident, police say Trump pointed a gun at Edelman's head and threatened to kill her.
