Ex-Homecoming Queen Beats Sister With Fake Leg In Trailer

NORTH HUNTINGDON, Pa. - A former homecoming queen is facing a slew of charges Thursday, accused of attacking her sister with a prosthetic leg and then threatening to burn down a neighbor's home.

Not long after graduating from Norwin High School, drama began for Donna Sturkie-Anthony.

The ex-homecoming queen had two DUI convictions in Allegheny County in 1991. One was in Rankin, where police said she was so drunk she smeared her feces in the back of a police car.

Anthony married and moved away in the late 1990s. But when she returned, she was arrested another half dozen times by North Huntingdon police, most recently last month.

Police said Anthony's sister came to visit her at her Route 30 trailer, and the two started arguing about her alcohol abuse. Then, police said Anthony pulled off her sister's prosthetic leg and beat her with it.

A month later, police said, Anthony stole her neighbor's telephone and then threatened to burn down their trailer if they testified against her.

In another incident, police said Anthony threw ground meat at her neighbor before she threatened to kick his pregnant daughter in the stomach.

"The police, they call for backup when they come up here to deal with her," said one neighbor who asked not to be identified. "They know who she is."

Anthony is being held without bond in the Westmoreland County Prison. Police said it's because she is a danger to others and herself.

Really couldn't make this stuff up.
