Question of the Day
TRENTON — A man high on PCP-laced marijuana stabbed two neighborhood children in their home while they slept, killing a 6-year-old boy and critically wounding his 12-year-old sister, authorities said.
Osvaldo Rivera was found hiding between a mattress and a bedroom wall Sunday afternoon inside a Camden apartment and was charged Monday with murder and attempted murder, said Jason Laughlin, a spokesman for the Camden County prosecutor’s office.
The attack was the second recent one in Camden, an impoverished city across the river from Philadelphia, involving a child and a suspect said to be high on PCP and marijuana.
Mr. Rivera, 31, was being held in jail awaiting arraignment, which Mr. Laughlin said will likely be held Tuesday.
Police found blood-stained sneakers inside the apartment where Mr. Rivera was arrested that matched bloody footprints in the home where Dominick Andujor was stabbed to death, Mr. Laughlin said. The boy’s 12-year-old sister had her throat slit while she slept in another room. She remained hospitalized Monday at Cooper University Hospital in Camden.
Police: Man grew pot on church property
GROVE CITY — Police say a western Pennsylvania man has been arrested and charged with growing marijuana on a church’s property.
State police arrested Jason Como, 28, on Saturday after the Beloved Disciples Church reported that two suspected marijuana plants were growing on their property in Grove City.
Authorities found a small path that led from the plants to the backyard of a nearby home. They contacted Mr. Como and say he confessed to growing the plants.
Mr. Como was charged with manufacturing and cultivating a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Marvel’s Venom pulls up NYC stake for Philly steak
PHILADELPHIA — Philadelphia is getting a new fan in the pages of Marvel Comics, but whether the City of Brotherly Love takes to anti-hero Venom remains to be seen.
Marvel Entertainment LLC says that Venom — a brute with big teeth and an elongated tongue who’s made a habit of sparring with Spider-Man — is leaving New York City to start fresh, and maybe learn to be a hero on the streets of Philadelphia.
Writer Cullen Bunn and editor Tom Brennan, an alum of Philadelphia’s Drexel University, say it’s time the city had a hero of its own, putting it in the same league as Los Angeles, New York and other real-life cities that populate Marvel’s fictional world.
