Raghunandan Yandamuri pleaded not guilty Friday to two counts of first-degree murder and 11 other charges in a bizarre kidnap-and-ransom case that turned deadly in a King of Prussia apartment complex last October. The Montgomery County District Attorney's Office is seeking the death penalty against Yandamuri, 27, of Upper Merion, in the deaths of 10-month-old Saanvi Venna and her grandmother. County Court Judge Steven T. O'Neill accepted the 13 not-guilty pleas from Yandamuri's court-appointed lawyer, Stephen G. Heckman, as the defendant sat quietly next to his attorney.

A Montgomery County Court jury on Wednesday found a King of Prussia man guilty of killing his girlfriend's husband in a triangle filled more with blood than love. Gabriel Martinez, 25, was convicted of first-degree murder, kidnapping, and other charges in the 2010 killing of Jose Armando Cazares-Olarte. Though sentencing in Judge Joseph A. Smyth's court has not taken place, the crime carries a mandatory life sentence. "It was a particularly vicious, brutal attack," Assistant District Attorney John Gradel said.

"It's been 48 hours," Prasad Sanikommu said softly, leaving the audience to fill in the rest. Two full days since 10-month-old Saanvi Venna was last seen, since she was taken from the King of Prussia apartment where her grandmother had been killed. He was addressing supporters, media crews, and members of the Indian diaspora around the world. More than 200 people attended the candlelight vigil Wednesday evening at Heuser Park in King of Prussia, surrounding Sanikommu and other relatives as they prayed and pleaded for the girl's safe return, bathed in fluorescent camera lights that were a harsh contrast to the warm glow of the candles.

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.

  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.

Rashivar Karnati didn't know. He shared an apartment in San Jose, Calif., with Raghunandan Yandamuri in 2011, but could recall only one time his roommate visited a casino in Reno. Chendu Tummala had met Yandamuri years earlier in undergraduate school in India. Long after both men moved to the United States, they still hewed to Indian traditions and would never have discussed Yandamuri's gambling problem. "Asking financial information is not a good thing," Tummala told me. "We didn't even know he had filed for bankruptcy.

In a move that monetizes the real estate value of one of its prime locations, embattled Sears Holdings Corp. announced Thursday it would carve up and share its King of Prussia mall anchor with retailer Dick's Sporting Goods. Terms of its sublease were not disclosed, nor was a time frame for when Dick's would move in. But Sears said it would continue operating its department store on the first floor of the two-story, 215,000-square-foot anchor at the East Coast's largest shopping mall, and that Dick's would occupy parts of the second level.
