The plea is guilty from a Towamencin man who was in Montgomery County Court on Friday for killing his infant son. 24-year-old Jameel East of Lantern Lane admitted striking the head of the child against a sink after the baby vomited on him. The judge deferred sentencing pending a background investigation. East faces at least 21-years in jail for third degree murder.
A teenage boy was struck and killed by a train while walking along a SEPTA commuter rail line track in Middletown on Friday. Police identify the youth as 15-year-old Chris Mongillo of West Highland Avenue in Middletown. He was a student at Neshaminy High School. Investigators say the boy left a note at home. The Bucks County Coroner is calling the death a suicide. It happened on the same SEPTA track where another Neshaminy High School student was struck and killed by a train on New Year's Day.
