    Jasper Moy will be in court Wednesday to face charges that he carjacked Deena Linder, the wife of Chester mayor John Linder, in their own driveway back in May.

    The man accused of carjacking the wife of a Delaware County mayor at gunpoint was set to be in court Wednesday morning for a formal arraignment on multiple charges.

    Twenty-four-year-old Jasper Gregory Moy faces charges of aggravated assault, robbery of a motor vehicle, carrying firearms without a license and other related offenses for allegedly demanding Deena Linder, wife of Chester's mayor, get out of her Ford Taurus while pointing a gun at her head May 14.

    The incident occurred on the 500 block of Reaney Street, Chester City -- right in front of the Linder's home, according to police.

    Linder was not hurt during the ordeal. Authorities recovered her vehicle at West 7th and Norris streets in Chester in the early morning hours of May 15 -- the same day Moy was arrested.
