The killing was all relative. Steven Watts, 25, ended a family dispute by gunning down his cousin after an argument last year, said the prosecutor. He fired two shots through the open sunroof of a car at Sedgley Avenue and Dauphin Street, said Assistant District Attorney Judith Frankel Rubino. Anthony Upshur, 21, of Salford Street near Chester Avenue, was hit by two bullets as he tried to kick the gun that was pointed at his head on May 16, 1997, said Rubino. "I'm hit," sighed Upshur to his brother, Michael, who was driving the car. "I feel like I'm going to die. " He died the next day. Yesterday, Watts, of 24th Street near Thompson, pleaded guilty to third-degree murder and was sentenced to 10 to 25 years in prison by Common Pleas Judge Robert A. Latrone.

CBS will usher "Family Feud" into its daytime lineup in star-spangled fashion on the Fourth of July. After the show's three-year absence from network television, CBS announced that a new version of "Family Feud" - without the kiss-happy original host, Richard Dawson - will replace "The $25,000 Pyramid" in the 9 to 9:30 a.m. time slot. "The $25,000 Pyramid," which will make its final appearance July 1, went off the CBS morning schedule in January for 13 weeks. It returned in April but was unable to generate sufficient ratings.

The very public squabble between the founder of Waterloo Gardens nurseries and his daughter and her husband ended amicably in a Chester County Court hearing room. James Paolini, 84, an Italian immigrant who built up successful nurseries and garden centers in Exton and Devon, had once accused his only child, Zelinda LeBoutillier, and her husband of swindling him out of his businesses and pushing him out of his Devon home. But after four months of negotiations through attorneys, Paolini agreed that his daughter and her husband, Roberts LeBoutillier, had paid for the properties in full, according to a statement released yesterday.

Never mind the Victor Kiam saga, which is nothing that a nifty $38 million wouldn't cure. The grittiest ongoing soap opera in the NFL is the bitter battle over the estate of late Dolphins owner Joe Robbie. Tough-guy Robbie sweated for 25 years to build the Miami Dolphins into one of sports' premier franchises. But since his death in 1990, his survivors have scrapped like third-graders, opening deep wounds and raising the possibility that the only way to settle the dispute is to sell the club.

When the New Jersey International Association of Jazz Educators Jazz Festival finals ended, Somerdale's Eileen Garton was sure that St. Jude had heard and answered her prayers. She was sure that was the only possible explanation for two South Jersey high school bands less than 10 miles apart finishing first and second in the competition. And, her husband was the director of one, and her son was a prizewinning saxophone soloist for the other. Overbrook Regional High School in Pine Hill, directed by William Garton, won the competition, and Highland Regional High School in Blackwood, directed by John Tumminia, took second place when the nine competing bands sounded their final notes at Roxbury High School in Succasunna, Morris County, on April 26. The local bands' domination of the festival did not end there.

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - In a macabre family feud fought as Nelson Mandela remained in critical condition, a South African court ruled Wednesday that the former president's grandson must return the bodies of the 94-year-old's three deceased children to their original burial site. Mandela is in "perilous" condition and on life support, according to an affidavit filed Friday and made public in the ruling Wednesday, according to a South African newspaper. The judge's order means that grandson Mandla Mandela must reverse the action he took in 2011, when he moved the bodies from Mandela's hometown in Qunu to his birthplace of Mvezo, about 15 miles away.

RYAN HOWARD isn't the only professional athlete whose family members are a pain in the tuckus. We'll give Eric "Meet the Parents" Lindros a pass since he's being honored by the Flyers tonight. But who can forget when Allen Iverson reportedly paid a lump sum of $3 million to settle his divorce with then-estranged wife Tawanna? That set up one of the greatest lines ever uttered in a courtroom as Iverson, pulling his pants pockets inside out, shouted to his wife, "I don't even have money for a cheeseburger.

HOUSTON - Kris Jenkins gives a little smile, the picture of cool, talking about the work he has to do Monday against North Carolina's big men. Sure, they've got a few inches on him and there are more of them. Jenkins knows all that better than anyone. If the Tar Heels are playing, he's watching. They are practically family. One of them is family. But stick to the court first. If Villanova wins a national title at NRG Stadium, odds are Jenkins will be way up the list of reasons why. Something like the 18 points and eight rebounds Jenkins had against Oklahoma - and his defensive work, including that charge he took from Buddy Hield - would look just dandy for 'Nova if he repeats it all. Jenkins is used to matchup issues.

The first time Craig Alter, a pediatric endocrinologist at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, heard the word for his specialty was as an eighth-grader. He was watching the original Star Trek when an endocrinologist joined Dr. McCoy to diagnose an adrenal condition in one of the starship Enterprise crew members. A longtime fan of the show, Alter also noted a second time when endocrinology played a role on the series. During the episode "Plato's Stepchildren," the crew encounters a character with dwarfism and Spock correctly states that it stemmed from a pituitary problem, another shout-out to Alter's future specialty.

A CONTROVERSY sparked by three NAACP board members leading a revolt against the local president began with questions about money. It shattered long friendships. Now it has turned both personal and warthog ugly. Under attack is Stetson-wearing, longtime local NAACP president Jerry Mondesire, accused of playing a shell game with two checks totaling $10,500 intended for the NAACP - one for $10,000, another for $500. There is little question the NAACP's finances are precarious. Philadelphia Gas Works last month slapped a lien on the civil-rights organization for $821.83.

LET'S FACE it, when you think of a game-show host "type," local sports-gabber Mike Missanelli doesn't spring immediately to mind. Historically speaking, the most successful TV-game emcees have been genial to the point of unctuousness - walking, schmoozing embodiments of the phrase "warm and fuzzy. " Mikey Miss, on the other hand, has made headlines with public explosions of anger. If you call him on his daily 3-to-7 p.m. radio show on 97.5 The Fanatic and say something that he disagrees with, he's likely to question your sanity, intelligence and reason for living.

Christine Belford had endured a bitter divorce and custody dispute, and she was living in fear that her relationship with her ex-husband would take a violent turn. That fear became a shocking reality Monday, when her ex-father-in-law, Thomas Matusiewicz, 68, opened fire in the New Castle County Courthouse in Wilmington, killing her and another woman, and wounding two law enforcement officers before killing himself, state police said. It was the tragic fallout of the deeply troubled relationship between Belford, 39, and David Matusiewicz, 45, officials said.
