Lancaster, PA: Lawyer of Lancaster County boyfriend acused of smothering, killing girlfriend: He's not as portrayed

Benjamin Klinger is not a jealous boyfriend who intentionally killed his girlfriend, the 19-year-old man's attorney said Friday.

Klinger has been at Lancaster County Prison for a week now, charged with homicide and other offenses for a Dec. 4 crash that resulted in Samantha Heller's death.

Defense lawyer Jeffrey Conrad, following meetings with his client, said the Elizabethtown teenager is "mourning" Heller's death.

And Klinger has been mischaracterized, Conrad says, by charging documents that allege he smothered Heller to death after realizing the car crash hadn't killed her.
