The Delaware County attorney whom prosecutors have sought to have removed from a murder case turned the tables and asked Wednesday that the case be referred to the Attorney General's Office. John Kusturiss, who represents Parth Ingle, a Pottstown man charged with murdering his father, stated that the Delaware County District Attorney's Office has an "unwillingness to investigate other suspects" and has "fixated" on Ingle. Thomas Lawrie, an assistant district attorney, could not be reached for comment.

The Delaware County District Attorney's Office took the unusual step Wednesday of asking a judge to remove a defense lawyer from a murder case. The prosecutors' petition alleges that attorney John Kusturiss has a conflict in representing defendant Parth Ingle because Kusturiss' son, Gordon, is Ingle's best friend and may be called to testify. Ingle, 24, of Pottstown, is in jail on charges of slaying his father, Arunkumar, 55, who was found stabbed and beaten in the family's Middletown Township home in 2008.

The case has all the twists and turns of a crime novel. The victim, Arunkumar Ingle, a 55-year-old Boeing Co. engineer from Middletown Township, Delaware County, had planned to fake his own death and run off to India with his Russian mistress, using a fake passport. He would leave behind $3.6 million in life insurance to take care of his family. Now, nearly four years after he was stabbed and beaten in his bedroom - his testicles severely bruised - investigators say anger and financial gain were the motives for his 25-year-old son, Parth, to kill him. On Wednesday, police charged Parth Ingle with homicide, aggravated assault, terroristic threats, and related crimes including conspiracy, a charge investigators would not comment on, in his father's death.

ARUNKUMAR INGLE had planned to fake his own death, leave his family more than $3 million in life-insurance benefits, grab a fake passport and escape Delaware County to live with his mistress in India. Instead, the 55-year-old Boeing engineer was found bludgeoned and stabbed to death in his Middletown home in January 2008, his blood splattered on the walls and his testicles severely bruised. That's the story told in a 31-page criminal complaint filed yesterday - nearly four years later - that accuses Ingle's son of murdering him after installing a GPS device on Ingle's car and a keystroke logger on his computer to monitor the long-running affair.

ON A RECENT podcast promoting "Ricky Gervais' Guide to Law and Order," the British comedian told how he once was the unwitting victim of identity theft. Here's how the thieves almost got away with ?200,000 from his bank account: They created a fake passport in Gervais' name. Gervais said that he was phoned first by concerned bank staff and later visited by police after the crooks were caught trying to convert his cash into gold. "How did they think they were going to get away with it?"

Bail was raised to $1.75 million yesterday for a Greek national charged in a $144 million scheme to evade motor-fuel taxes after the FBI said his wife was trying to get him a passport so he could flee the United States. The accused man, Demetrios Karamanos, has been free on $750,000 bail since he was indicted in August and accused with 24 others of tax fraud. His bail was secured by his $800,000 home in Norwood, N.J., officials said. Judge Joseph E. Irenas added $1 million to Karamanos' bail at the end of a day-long detention hearing yesterday in the new U.S. Courthouse at Fourth and Cooper Streets.

Todd Gill called it the biggest goal of his NHL career. Certainly, it was his most timely. The Toronto defenseman scored from the Chicago blue line 2:15 into overtime to give the host Maple Leafs a 1-0 victory last night, ending a goaltending duel between Felix Potvin and the Blackhawks' Ed Belfour. Toronto leads the best-of-seven series, 2-0, heading into Games 3 and 4 in Chicago on Saturday and Sunday. "I saw Wendel (Clark) in front of the net and I was just shooting the puck toward him," said Gill, who had only scored four times in 47 previous playoff games in his nine years in the NHL. "Belfour was paying attention to Wendel and the puck went off the inside of Belfour's right leg pad and into the net. It's a satisfying goal, but I don't score a lot of goals so they're all satisfying.
