UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Two western Pennsylvania men are in trouble for allegedly serving poached food at their Super Bowl party — and that doesn't mean eggs or salmon.

Instead, a state wildlife conservation officer has charged 21-year-old Christopher Layman, of Uniontown, and 35-year-old James Donaldson, of Lemont Furnace, with killing two deer out of season on Feb. 5 so they could serve fresh venison at their Super Bowl party the next day.

Online court records don't list attorneys for either man and The Associated Press could not locate a home telephone number for Donaldson. Layman didn't immediately return a message seeking comment Friday.

The game officer says a third person with the men told him what happened. That man is not charged. The officer says both men then confessed to killing the deer and butchering them in a garage.
