4-year-old Falls From 3rd Floor; Venna Killer Fires Lawyer; One Man March for McDevitt
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

A 4-year-old boy is recovering today after falling from a 3rd floor window in South Philadelphia last night. It happened after 10:30pm on the 1100 block of Bainbridge Street in the city's Bella Vista section. A PPA worker on patrol discovered the child crying next to a house in an alley off Bainbridge Street. Police determined that he had fallen through the window screen in the third floor in a room he shares with his 12-year-old brother. The boy only suffered some bruises and a fractured wrist. He was taken to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and is in stable condition. The Special Victims Unit is investigating.

The Upper Merion man accused of killing 10-month-old Saanvi Venna and her 61-year-old grandmother in a botched kidnap for ransom attempt has fired his lawyer and plans to represent himself at trial. 26-year-old Raghu Yandamuri was granted a motion to discharge his lawyer, Steve Heckman, who will now act as a standby for consultation. Heckman believes this is a big mistake as Yandamuri knows nothing of the legal proceedings of a criminal trial. Yandamuri faces the death penalty if convicted of first-degree murder of Saanvi and her grandmother. Trial is set to start in September.

They are calling it the “One Man March for McDevitt.” Taking the entire Walk-a-thon on his own back, or er shoes, Bishop McDevitt President, Steve Finley ’69, will walk 40 miles between Friday, May 16th and Sunday, May 18th throughout Eastern Montgomery County. Of course this is all a fundraiser and he is hoping to raise money for academic programs, tuition assistance, scholarships, athletics, and extra-curricular activities, but he is also trying to draw some attention to Catholic eduction in general and Bishop McDevitt specifically. So why do it all himself? Steve decided “not to ruin everyone else’s weekend!” Today wasn't the best day to start trekking around areas of Roslyn, Jenkintown, Ardsley, Glenside, etc. but the rest of the weekend should be perfect.

If you are interested in following Steve's progress or to make a donation go to: Keep an eye out for him this weekend.
