Teen to be tried as juvenile in fatal crash

NEWARK -- A Johnstown teenager will not be charged as an adult for his suspected role in a Sept. 2 fatal crash on Reynolds Road.
Spencer Lorenza, 17, appeared in court Monday; his attorney Rob Calesaric and Licking County Prosecutor Ken Oswalt agreed to a mental and physical examination of Lorenza before additional proceedings. No pleas were entered.
The prosecutor's office will not seek a bind over to adult court, Oswalt said.
Lorenza has been charged with involuntary manslaughter, aggravated vehicular homicide, fleeing and misdemeanor assault in Licking County Juvenile Court for reportedly causing a crash that killed Hannah Gattrell, 16, of Newark, while driving away from Utica police, according to court records.
He also faces a receiving stolen property charge for reportedly selling equipment stolen from a McKean Township farm between July 21 and Aug. 15. The items were sold as scrap metal for more than $1,000, according to the complaint filed in juvenile court.
Lorenza will remain in the Multi-County Juvenile Detention Center in Lancaster pending additional court proceedings.
