Down below, the malls loom out of the summer haze. Columns of hot air rise from the roads and parking lots a thousand feet below to jolt Tim Kunda's clattering airplane like speed bumps. Kunda looks down at the sprawling 330-store complex, home to the Court at King of Prussia and its soon-to-expand sister mall, the Plaza. Grinning, he takes his hands off the controls and turns his palms upward in a gesture of incredulity and pride. "It's huge. It's incredible how big it is," shouts Kunda, 34, chairman of the local planning commission.

The towering black wall has been impossible to miss. Rising from shiny, white floor tiles at the East Coast's largest shopping mall, it has projected a cloak of mystery all the more stark for being a short walk from Louis Vuitton, Hermes, and Neiman Marcus - stores forbidding for their prices, if not their facades. For months, the black monolith has broadcast nothing to shoppers at the Plaza at King of Prussia. Not even the benign nugget of history that behind it once hummed a now-defunct John Wanamaker department store.

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.

NORRISTOWN Montgomery County prosecutors will be allowed to present written and video-recorded confessions in the trial of a man accused of killing a grandmother and a baby in King of Prussia. Raghunandan Yandamuri, 28, is accused of killing 61-year-old Satyavathi Venna and 10-month-old Saanvi Venna in a botched ransom attempt in October 2012. County Court Judge Steven T. O'Neill rejected Yandamuri's claims that the confessions were coerced after 17 hours of questioning. It came down to the word of a county detective against the word of Yandamuri, O'Neill said, adding: "I find Detective Bradbury's testimony to be completely credible.

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.
