PHILADELPHIA — A Philadelphia man whose former girlfriend is said to have offered $1,000 on Facebook for someone to kill him was fatally shot after a judge upheld felony charges against his ex and the teen who purportedly offered to kill him.

Police say 22-year-old Corey White was shot Monday evening in West Philadelphia, but investigators aren’t sure why he was killed.

Earlier Monday, a city judge approved murder solicitation and murder conspiracy charges, respectively, against his ex-girlfriend and the 18-year-old who is said to have responded to her post in June.

Authorities say 20-year-old London Eley made a post offering “a stack” to kill her baby’s father. They say Timothy Bynum said he’d do it.

Miss Eley’s attorney says she was venting after an argument.

The Philadelphia Inquirer first reported Mr. White’s death.
