Newlyweds "processed" in Sunbury

— SUNBURY — Nearly 80 days after Miranda and Elytte Barbour were arrested Sunbury police made their way to the Columbia County and Northumberland County prisons to “process” the newlyweds accused in the November slaying of a Port Trevorton man.

“We are just now getting into the prosecuting stage of the investigation and this was the time we chose to do it,” police Chief Steve Mazzeo said Tuesday.

“This is standard procedure and it has nothing to do with any allegations that were made by either of the defendants.”

Miranda, in an interview with The Daily Item on Valentine’s Day, said she had killed “less than 100” people, but stopped counting at 22. Miranda said she wanted to give the interview because she wanted to “tell the truth.”

The news of Miranda’s interview hit national news and Mazzeo said the pair were already scheduled to be fingerprinted and photographed on Monday and Tuesday.

Elytte arrived first to the police department on Monday and exited a police cruiser with a smile on his face and answered limited questions shouted at him by reporters. He was informed of the news his wife conducted the interview, but Barbour had little to say.

Elytte and his attorney Jim Best — who arrived at the station shortly after Elytte — spent a few hours in the department.

On Tuesday, Miranda arrived to the station at around 10 a.m. and was there for less than an hour.

Mazzeo would not comment on the Barbours’ appearance a the police station saying he couldn’t speak to an active investigation.
