Sara Packer Pleads Not Guilty, Death Penalty Sought; NE Extension Cleared; DCMH Nurses Back At Work

42-year-old Sara Packer was arraigned today in the rape, murder, and dismemberment of her 14-year-old adoptive daughter, Grace Packer, last summer. Packer pled not guilty to charges of homicide, kidnapping, abuse of corpse, conspiracy to commit rape, and other charges. Grace disappeared from her Abington home in July 2016 and was reported missing. In actuality, Sara and her boyfriend, 44-year-old Jacob Sullivan, took Grace to a new home in Quakertown where they raped and killed her. Hunters discovered her dismembered body in the woods of Luzerne County in October. Sara was also collecting disability payments for Grace over the time she was supposedly missing. The Bucks County DA said it is reserving it's right to seek the death penalty in the case.

The northbound Northeast Extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike has been cleared after two accidents blocked the roadway this morning between the between Quakertown and Lehigh Valley exits. The first crash involved as many as 15 cars in a chain reaction pileup. It happened around 10:30 a.m. near mile marker 47. Some of the vehicles were completely spun around. Minor injuries were reported. The second crash involved two cars, no other information was available. It is possible the weather played a factor as snow was coming down at the time.

Nurses and techs returned to work at Delaware County Memorial Hospital in Upper Darby. They had walked out on Sunday for a planned two-day strike. When they tried to return on Tuesday, they were locked out of work. The temporary workers hired to replace the more than 300 employees had a five day minimum contract. The nurses still do not have a new contract. The union Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied Professionals and the hospital will continue to negotiate.

This afternoon, clearing skies, temperatures in the mid 30's in Center City
