PHILADELPHIA – April 2, 2008 (WPVI) — Police say there has been a possible break in a deadly SEPTA attack. Authorities have four young men in the homicide unit on the verge of being charged in the fatal attack that claimed the life of a Center City coffee shop manager. Right after the attack police arrested a 16-year-old boy, and were looking for four other suspects. Now, police believe as many as six people were involved in the subway attack. It was a week ago today that 36-year-old Sean Conroy [NOT pictured] was attacked at the subway platform at 13th and Market. He was beaten mercilessly and died of a fatal asthma attack.
THIS JUST IN: For a second time, Pennsylvania’s highest court is siding with casino owners accusing Philadelphia City Council of foot-dragging over approval of the facility. On Wednesday, Supreme Court justices issued a 6-0 decision, saying the City Council’s failure to act is beyond its powers. It ordered the city to approve the construction of Foxwoods Casino Philadelphia, including altering its records, maps and plans to show that the casino has been approved. In a 19-page opinion, Chief Justice Ronald D. Castille wrote that “there is ample evidence that the inaction was a deliberate attempt by (City) Council to simply delay the construction of the casinos.” In December, the Supreme Court issued the same order for SugarHouse Casino.
