Wayne S. Lipecky, Public Defender, Beaver, for appellant.
Joseph M. Stanichak, Asst. Dist. Atty., Beaver, for appellee.
Jones, C. J., and Eagen, O'Brien, Roberts, Pomeroy, Nix and Manderino, JJ.
Appellant, Steve Bronaugh, was convicted of murder in the second degree, simple assault, aggravated assault, and recklessly endangering another person and sentenced to from eight to twenty years' imprisonment.*fn1
From that judgment appellant has taken this appeal and alleges one basis for reversal. However, no issues
have been properly preserved for appellate review. Although an implied exception to the alleged error was taken at trial,*fn2 counsel for the appellant made no specific mention of the alleged error in his posttrial motions in arrest of judgment and for a new trial.
We have held that issues not preserved at each stage of review, by a specific allegation of error, are waived and subsequently cannot be raised in an appeal to this Court. Commonwealth v. Reid, Pa., 326 A.2d 296 (1974) (concurring Commonwealth v. Clair, Pa., 326 A.2d 272 (1974); Commonwealth v. Blagman, Pa., 326 A.2d 296 (1974) (concurring opinion); Commonwealth v.
