An infant found dead Monday afternoon in his East Frankford home was beaten to death and did not drown as initially suspected, authorities said yesterday. Jeff Moran, spokesman for the Philadelphia Medical Examiner's Office, said 3-month-old Marrieon Currie had multiple injuries, but he did not elaborate on the injuries or exact cause of death. Had the child died as a result of drowning, the autopsy report would have specified that, Moran said. The child's mother, Lea Currie, 24, of the 4900 block of Charles Street, was charged with murder Monday night.

A 33-year-old Bensalem man has been charged with assaulting his 10-week-old son in what the Bucks County district attorney called "probably the worst case of child abuse we have ever seen. " The infant was in critical condition at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia yesterday with multiple fractures, facial cuts and bruises, a torn rectum, a second-degree burn on his left buttock, and brain and retinal hemorrhaging that doctors said might have been caused by violent shaking, said District Attorney Alan M. Rubenstein.

It's happened before - a child falls out of a window at the Cambridge Apartments high-rise - and Walter Colclough wouldn't be surprised if it happens again. "We have a window that's just about ready to fall on somebody's head," said Colclough, who lives two floors above the ninth-floor apartment in the building at 11th and Poplar streets. It was that ninth-floor window from which 17-month-old Carl McCollum tumbled to his death yesterday morning in what police have classified as an accident.

A Montgomery County jury on Friday heard emotional testimony from relatives of a King of Prussia grandmother and infant who were murdered in 2012. But the 28-year-old man convicted in the killings initially asked the judge to skip the proceedings altogether. "I don't want this hearing," Ranghunandan Yandamuri quietly told Judge Steven T. O'Neill Friday morning, before the witnesses took the stand. "I would rather take the death penalty. " Yandamuri, 28, a former information technology worker who immigrated from India on a work visa, did not explain his reasoning, and ultimately it was moot.

The war was closing in. Hour by hour, North Vietnamese and Viet Cong soldiers tightened their grip on Saigon. Their artillery shells fell, like heavy footsteps, across the restive city. In the chaos, a C-5A Galaxy cargo plane took off from Saigon-Tan Son Nhut Airport as part of "Operation Babylift" - a mass evacuation of children from South Vietnam. Jim Zimmerly was one of scores of babies on the aircraft climbing over the South China Sea on April 4, 1975 when locks on a rear loading ramp failed and cargo doors blew open explosively.

Police said the animals consumed between 15 and 20 percent of the baby's face.

ALL THAT'S left is a soggy cliche, a makeshift memorial on a lonely stretch of road in New Jersey where people chuck empty beer cans into the woods without slowing down. Flowers, ribbons, police tape, an electric candle. Cheery stuffed animals that lose their charm as soon as it rains. Atop this sad totem pole, there's a white teddy bear in a ballerina outfit with the words "Camden pray for you" written across the front. Pemberton Township residents placed the items there in memory of a baby whose name they don't know.

A West Philadelphia man who told police he accidentally beat his infant son to death while trying to punch the family dog was sentenced to 20 to 40 years in prison Friday. Samuel N. Cabrera, 29, dropped his head to the defense table and cried as his punishment was announced. He said nothing when given his chance to address the court. Judge Sandy L.V. Byrd also had harsh words for the child's mother, Jennifer Wycoff, who was sitting in the courtroom, and the prosecutors who decided not to charge her with a crime.

A MONTGOMERY County Court jury yesterday sentenced a man to death in the 2012 murders of an infant and her grandmother, District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman said last night. Raghu Yandamuri, 28, of King of Prussia, was convicted last week of killing Satyavathi Venna, 61, and 10-month-old Saanvi Venna during a plot to extort a ransom from the Venna family. Yandamuri met the family while living in the same complex, the Marquis Apartments in King of Prussia, prosecutors said. His plan was to kidnap the infant in a ploy to bilk the family out of $50,000 to help settle gambling debts.
