The estranged husband of a Harrisburg school teacher killed in her home last year has been held for trial.

Donnell Price, 40, waived his preliminary hearing before a district judge Friday and was returned to the Dauphin County Prison, where he been held without bail since his arrest last month.

A formal arraignment was scheduled for March 15.

Price face criminal homicide and related charges in the Dec. 15 slaying of Tarina Price, an eighth grade English language arts teacher at Rowland School.

Price was shot in the head at her home in the 1600 block of Sycamore Street.

Authorities have said two young children were in the home, but were asleep and didn't see anything. They are in the care of family members.
