Stabbing Murder Suicide; Kenney Appointee Resigns; Meek Mill's Cousin Killed

A murder-suicide in a well-to-do neighborhood in Northeast Philadelphia was discovered Tuesday. A man and woman were found stabbed to death. 60-year-old Lawrence Carty stabbed 68-year-old widow and former friend Virginia McLaughlin inside her home near Woodhaven Road. Neighbors told police Carty and McLaughlin were friends, but that ended after an argument last week. Police found the weapon and determined both had been stabbed, and Carty's wounds were self-inflicted. McLaughlin had lived in the home for 25 years. Her husband died in 1999 and her adult sons had since moved out.

Mayor Kenney's appointee to lead the city's Zoning Board of Adjustment resigned Wednesday, three weeks after his home and office were raided by FBI agents investigating the powerful electricians union and its leader, John Dougherty. James Moylan, a South Philadelphia chiropractor and longtime friend of the union chief, made the decision to step down in consultation with the mayor and his administration, mayoral spokeswoman Lauren Hitt said Wednesday.

It was an especially violent Tuesday in Philadelphia. Three men were fatally shot. Six others were wounded by gunfire. A woman was stabbed to death by a man who then killed himself. Among the victims, one name stood out for superstar rapper Meek Mill. His cousin, 21-year-old Angelo Colon, was gunned down late Tuesday night in South Philadelphia. Mill, who grew up in the city, took to his Instagram account early Wednesday morning and told his 10.1 million followers that "Lo" had been killed.

The Phillies have the Pirates tonight.
