The alleged gunman in the botched robbery killing of a suburban Philadelphia musician scuffled with a sheriff's deputy escorting him from the courtroom where he and two other men were ordered held for trial.

Breon Powell had to be wrestled to the ground following the brief brawl after yesterday's hearing in a Bucks Co. courtroom.

The Bucks County Courier Times reports 19-year-old Jermaine Jackson and 18-year-old Kazair Gist were also ordered to stand trial after the court heard testimony from a fourth person who allegedly drove the men the night DeGennaro was killed.

Eighteen-year-old Danasia Bakr wants her case transferred to juvenile court. A second woman is also charged.
