Charges Reinstated Against Amtrak Engineer; Supreme Court Allows Redistricting; Woman Killed By Car
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

A judge has reinstated involuntary manslaughter and reckless endangerment charges against the train engineer at the helm of the deadly Philadelphia Amtrak 188 crash in May 2015. Back in September, a judge threw out all charges against 34-year-old Brandon Bostian after the preliminary hearing saying that there was insufficient evidence to head to trial. Judge Thomas Gehret said the evidence was "more likely an accident than criminal negligence." State prosecutors appealed. Judge Kathryn S. Lewis ruled today that Gehret erred in his decision and that there is sufficient evidence. Bostian has been ordered to stand trial. He remains free on bail, but must surrender his passport.

The U.S. Supreme Court will not block a court-ordered redrawing of Pennsylvania's 18 congressional districts. Justice Samuel Alito, who handles emergency appeals from Pennsylvania, rejected Republican legislative leaders and voters' plea to block the redistricting order from Pennsylvania's Supreme Court. Last month, the state high court said that the map "clearly, plainly and palpably" violated the state's constitution and cannot be used for the 2018 elections. The Republican-controlled Legislature has to pass a replacement map by February 9th and Dem. Gov. Tom Wolf has until February 15th to submit it to the court.

A woman was struck and killed by a car on the Roosevelt Boulevard in Northeast Philadelphia late Monday. It happened around 11 p.m. on the inner lanes near Large Street in the Oxford Circle neighborhood. The woman in her 20s was crossing the street at the time. She was taken to the hospital where she died from her injuries. The 22-year-old driver stayed at the scene. Police say that he did not appear to be impaired but he was driving without a driver's license. The woman has not been identified.

This afternoon, mostly cloudy, temperatures in the mid 30s in Center City
