Accused Baby Killer Moves Closer To Trial

Raghunandan_YandamuriA man accused of killing a baby girl and her grandmother in October in King of Prussia is being held for trial.

At a preliminary hearing Wednesday, a district judge ruled that prosecutors have enough evidence to try 26-year-old Raghunandan Yandamuri (pictured here) for murder, kidnapping and other offenses.

In a video recording played at the hearing Yandamuri told police he never intended to kill anyone, and he just wanted to kidnap the baby for ransom.

He demanded $50,000, the amount he had lost gambling at casinos.  He also ran up more than $26,000 in credit card debt, and had filed for bankruptcy in California last April before moving to Pennsylvania.

Authorities say 61-year-old grandmother Satayvathi Venna was killed while trying to save ten-month-old Saanvi Venna’s life.

Yandamuri lived at the Marquis Apartments in King of Prussia, where the victims also lived, and he was a social acquaintance of the baby’s parents.  A note left at the scene threatened to throw their daughter’s body parts into their apartment if they told anyone about the note or failed to pay the ransom.
