The adult son of Beaver County Treasurer Connie Javens has been charged with a felony following an alleged altercation at her house in Monaca.
Police say that Dan Javens, 52 of Monaca, got into a verbal altercation with his wife sometime around 8:40pm Thursday night. After she went into a bedroom of the home to get away from the man, he allegedly knocked it open in a fit of rage. The woman told police she feared for her life and pepper sprayed Javens in self defense.
Police allege that Dan Javens then retrieved his Smith & Wesson .38 caliber handgun and began searching the residence looking for his wife while yelling that he was going to kill her.
Officers say Dan Javens’ father, mother (Treasurer Connie Javens), and son were attempting to calm the man down when he fired a shot into a livingroom wall. The family told authorities they fled into another room fearing for their lives.
Dan Javens is facing felony charges of Aggravated Assault, a misdemeanor charge of Terroristic Threats, and 4 misdemeanor counts of Recklessly Endangering Another Person. Javens was released from the Beaver County Jail after Magisterial District Judge DiBenedetto of Aliquippa set a $50,000 unsecured bond in the case.
A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for Javens on March 20th at 9:00am.
