Aaron Jones, leader of the Junior Black Mafia, and one of his top lieutenants ordered and planned the execution-style slaying of a West Philadelphia food store owner, according to testimony yesterday in Municipal Court. The slaying was ordered in retaliation for the murder of the JBM's head of operations in Southwest Philadelphia, according to Christopher Anderson, 21, who testified at a preliminary hearing. Anderson said that under orders from Jones, 29, and JBM boss Samuel Brown, 30, he and another gunman burst into Mommie's Food Market, on 54th Street near Master, Aug. 18, 1990, and opened fire, killing the shop owner, Bruce Kennedy, 26. Anderson, who said he was a JBM enforcer at the time, testified that Jones ordered Kennedy's murder and Brown helped plan it to avenge an killing of Leroy "Bucky" Davis.

SEATTLE - A Washington state judge ruled yesterday that a teenage boy can keep living with his father and a woman who killed her own young daughters in 1991. The decision came in an unusual child-custody dispute that attracted national attention because of the woman's criminal history. Kristine Cushing was found not guilty by reason of insanity after shooting her 4- and 8-year-old daughters in their sleep in California's Orange County. She served four years in a mental institution followed by a decade of psychiatric monitoring before California determined she posed no further risk and granted her an unconditional release.

The Rev. George Charles Hoeh was a dynamic and well-loved Episcopal priest, a self-made millionaire and a thoroughly exuberant member of the human race. Even the detective investigating his murder remarked, "I haven't talked to anybody who didn't like him. " In his priestly life, Father Hoeh walked among the flock of his small, secure neighborhood parish in Brooklyn and served as confessor, comforter and social conscience. But he walked more dangerous paths in private life - on those frequent occasions when he abandoned Brooklyn for the relaxation of his commodious retreat in the affluent Sweetwater section of Mullica Township, N.J. It was there, on a Friday in June last year, that Father Hoeh, 58, carelessly invited home a stranger, a young man who called himself Paul and said he was from Minnesota.

Genesis Health Ventures Inc., of Kennett Square, filed for Chapter 11 protection yesterday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware, citing $1.5 billion in debts. Genesis is the fifth major nursing home company to file for bankruptcy in the last year as the industry has been battered by reimbursement reductions by Medicare. Genesis officials said that the company's 311 facilities in 15 states would continue to operate through Chapter 11 restructuring. "Chapter 11 protection ensures that employees can focus their attention on serving our customers while we restructure," Genesis's chairman and chief executive officer, Michael R. Walker, said.

Someone's missing at St. Thomas of Villanova Church. The Rev. Anthony Michael Genovese, pastor for eight years, took a sabbatical from January through May, and returned to a new job. Although he will live at the rectory, now it is just a home base for his travels. The new pastor is the Rev. Dennis J. Harten. "There was agreement between myself and my provincial that I would not come back and I would use my time away to reflect on what I wanted to do," Father Mickey, as he is known, said of his discussion with the regional supervisor of the Order of St. Augustine.

Now there are none. The last amusement park in the Pennsylvania suburbs of Philadelphia has died. The corpse is West Point Park, near Lansdale in Montgomery County. It's just a small place down a side road, an old place under a tall stand of old trees. In Montgomery County, West Point has died. In Bucks County, Sesame Place lives. But the Pennsylvania Bureau of Amusement Rides and Attractions - the state agency that regulates such things - has defined Sesame Place in Langhorne as a "kiddie ride operation," not an amusement park.

Attorney Christopher C. Fallon Jr. said he could not comment on terms of the settlement because of a confidentiality agreement. "I can tell you it was resolved to the satisfaction of the parties," he said. The settlement was reached on Monday, 11 months to the day after Hilltown became the second municipality in the United States to outlaw cellphone use while driving.

The crisis at Zany Brainy Inc. is deepening. With the King of Prussia retailer's cash almost gone, a major toy supplier said yesterday that it had halted shipments to Zany Brainy warehouses until the company solved its most pressing problem: finding a willing banker within two weeks. First Union Corp. froze Zany's credit line last month, and raised the interest rate on its outstanding loans, saying Zany was in default. The bank first became troubled after it inventoried the toys in Zany's warehouses, and placed a lower value on them than it had expected.

An admitted Southwest Philadelphia drug dealer told a federal jury yesterday that he routinely purchased three to five kilograms of cocaine a month from reputed drug kingpin Alton "Ace Capone" Coles from early in 2003 until summer 2005. Desmond Faison said three of those kilograms usually were converted into small doses of crack cocaine sold by a network of dealers working for him around the Paschall Homes in Southwest Philadelphia. The remainder, he said, was resold to dealers from other parts of the city or from New Jersey.
