About 20,000 collectors are likely to cram Valley Forge Convention Center in King of Prussia this weekend to see what merchandise the 300 dealers expected have hauled in for Renninger's Mid-Winter Classic. Based on previous Renninger shows, that means everything from soup to nuts in the antique and collectible catalogue. The indoor show serves as a cold- weather fix for fans of Renninger's outdoor shows held in Kutztown in spring, summer and fall. This year's outdoor shows - all held Friday and Saturday - are April 24-25, June 26-27 and Sept.

  With messages of hope and gratitude, friends and family bid a tearful farewell Sunday to Saanvi Venna, the baby girl who was abducted and killed, along with her grandmother, last week in King of Prussia. At a viewing in East Norriton, mourners clasped hands and placed pink and red rose petals atop the tiny, closed white casket. They removed their shoes to protect the sanctity of their surroundings and to create the type of intimate space 10-month-old Saanvi would have known at home.

WHERE IS baby Saanvi? One day after police discovered the body of her murdered grandmother in the family's King of Prussia high-rise apartment, authorities continued their desperate search for the child, who has been missing since the Monday murder and is presumed kidnapped. Relatives said that thugs had no reason to target their family. "We don't have any suspicion of anything, no threats on anyone," the girl's uncle Ram Venna told reporters Tuesday morning outside the Upper Merion Township Police Department, where the family spent the day with investigators.

A Montgomery County Court judge agreed Monday to a one-week delay in the September trial of a King of Prussia man accused of killing an infant and her grandmother in 2012. After a request from the defendant, Raghunandan Yandamuri, Judge Steven T. O'Neill moved the trial from Sept. 8 to 16. Yandamuri is representing himself, and the judge gave him the extra time to talk with the defense investigator, review a DNA analysis, and get more information from a forensic pathologist and a computer-generated animation expert the court recently appointed to work for the defense.

More than 200 Pennsylvania State University alumni turned out on a snowy Friday night in King of Prussia to support an effort to restore Joe Paterno's reputation in the aftermath of the Jerry Sandusky child sexual-abuse scandal. The gathering at the Radisson Hotel Valley Forge was organized and partly financed by pro football Hall-of-Famer Franco Harris, who played for Paterno. Applauded by the crowd, Harris argued that "Joe did the right thing" in handling the scandal and that the Penn State board rushed to judgment in firing him after charges were filed against Sandusky in late 2011.

The Marquis apartment complex in King of Prussia was draped with yellow crime-scene tape Tuesday as firefighters drained the pool, police academy cadets swept lawns and drainage ditches, and law enforcement authorities continued looking into the abduction of a 10-month-old girl and the slaying of her grandmother. Local, state, and federal authorities are jointly investigating the abduction of the girl, Saanvi Venna, and the killing of her grandmother, Satayvathi Venna, 61. Authorities gave few details of either incident Tuesday, citing concern for the baby's safety.

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.

A Montgomery County judge on Wednesday ruled Joseph McAndrew Jr. guilty but mentally ill of first-degree murder for fatally stabbing his parents and twin brother in King of Prussia in 2011. The verdict from Common Pleas Court Judge Gary S. Silow capped a three-day bench trial in which McAndrew and his lawyer sought to convince the judge that he was not guilty by reason of insanity when he used a sword to kill his father, Joseph; his mother, Susan; and his brother, James, in their Holstein Road home.

HARRISBURG - While battles rage in New Jersey and other states over whether to allow Tesla Motors to sell cars within their borders, Pennsylvania has quickly and quietly approved an expansion of the automaker's entry into the market. Gov. Corbett signed the legislation amid the budget frenzy last month, exempting electric-vehicle makers from a Pennsylvania law that bars car manufacturers from selling directly to consumers. The law lets Tesla open five stores statewide. The company opened a King of Prussia showroom last year and plans to open a second in Devon, a spokesman said.

Citing "institutional incompetence" at Nationwide Financial's mutual-funds business, based in King of Prussia, a Delaware judge ordered the company to pay a Michigan investment manager $10.3 million for breaching a contract. The lawsuit in Superior Court related to the 2007 management buyout of Nationwide's 65 percent stake in NorthPointe Holdings L.L.C., of Troy, which managed assets for some of Nationwide's retail mutual funds. As part of the $25 million buyout, NorthPointe managers negotiated provisions to protect their business with Nationwide Funds Group, which accounted for 22 percent of NorthPointe's $3.5 billion in assets under management, for three years.

When they showed up at the happy hour, they weren't wearing their office clothes, but sweats and tights. Nor were they drinking lagers and downing wings. Instead, they were contorting themselves, becoming at turns a Downward Facing Dog or a Half Lord of the Fishes. The 90 or so had gathered at 5:15 p.m. Tuesday at a nondescript office complex in King of Prussia for a "Yoga Happy Hour," a twist, bend, and stretch on a long-standing American tradition. The summertime yoga class and networking social draws scores of frazzled office workers, who change from business casual to sweat-friendly and stretch for 45 minutes on an office building patio in Upper Merion Township.
