NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A suburban Philadelphia man accused of killing a baby and her grandmother in a botched ransom kidnapping has lost a bid to prevent a jury from seeing key prosecution evidence.

KYW-AM (https://cbsloc.al/1eEARVX) said a Montgomery County judge on Thursday ruled that detectives legally obtained the videotaped confession of 27-year-old Raghunandan Yandamuri (rag-oo-NAHN’-dahn yahn-duh-MOHR’-ee).

Prosecutors said the defendant describes in the video what happened to 10-month-old Saanvi Venna and her grandmother in October 2012.

Authorities allege Yandamuri kidnapped the baby from her family’s King of Prussia apartment and killed her grandmother who tried to protect the child. The girl’s body was found several days later.

The judge did grant a defense motion to delay the trial. It had been scheduled for next month. Now, it appears it will be in September.
