Mid County E-Z Pass Open Early; Cosby Evidence: Quaaludes and Spanish Fly?; Handyman Guilty Murder
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA
started: 03/31/17 3:04 am | updated: 03/31/17 3:04 am
Upgrades to the Pennsylvania Turnpike's Mid-County Toll Plaza have been completed ahead of schedule. The high speed E-Z Pass lanes have been shutdown since March 20th. E-Z Pass drivers have been forced to used the regular lanes which require drivers to slow down to 10 mph to pass through the automated toll. All the electronics upgrades have been completed about two weeks ahead of the original April 10th forecast. The lanes will reopen around 5 a.m. on Friday morning. "The round-the-clock closure helped our crews and technicians expedite the work faster, so they were able to get the work finished earlier than expected. We're thrilled with and that's great news for our commuters that use that interchange" said Turnpike Commission spokeswoman Kathleen Walter.

Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin R. Steele wants to submit Bill Cosby's deposition testimony about giving quaaludes to woman and to use excepts from Cosby's 1991 book Childhood and a subsequent interview with Larry King that reference the aphrodisiac Spanish fly as evidence in his upcoming trial. The prosecution says they show Cosby's familiarity with date-rate drugs. The defense wants the judge to exclude the testimony about quaaludes and any other interactions with women that are not the accuser Andrea Constand and the other accuser set to testify. Judge Steven T. O'Neill will hear these arguments at a pre-trial hearing on Monday in Norristown.

A West Philadelphia maintenance man has been convicted and sentenced to life in prison for the rape and murder of a Drexel University grad student. 58-year-old James Harris was convicted by Common Pleas Court Sandy Byrd in a nonjury trial on Wednesday. He was sentenced to a mandatory life sentence plus 30 - 60 years for rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and burglary counts. It happened in July 2015. 27-year-old Jasmine Wright had just graduated from Drexel University's School of Public Health masters program. She was found in her apartment by a property manager after her family hadn't heard from her in a few days. Harris had worked as a handyman in the building on the 200 block of South 50th Street but was fired, evicted, and banned from the building a week prior to the attack. It is believed he still had keys. His DNA was matched to the scene. Harris gave up a jury trial so prosecutors would take away the death penalty.

Tonight, Rain showers, temperatures in the mid 40's this evening in Center City
