‘He Died For No Reason’: Jury Still Out on Stabbing Trial
10/16/2019 5:55pm

Jurors remained undecided Wednesday after several hours of deliberating whether 22-year-old Michael White is guilty of voluntary manslaughter in the stabbing death of 37-year-old Sean Schellenger.Philadelphia Common Pleas Judge Glenn B. Bronson sent the jury home when they couldnt reach a verdict by the end of the day. They will resume deliberations Thursday morning. I Was Horrified: Michael White Recalls Rittenhouse Killing White is facing one count of voluntary manslaughter, plus tampering, obstruction and weapons charges. The jury must vote unanimously to either convict or acquit White.Voluntary manslaughter carries a maximum sentence of 10 to 20 years in prison. 2 Guys Ready to Go: Witness Recalls Seconds Before Killing The emotional four-day trial wrapped earlier in the day with lawyers from both sides presenting their closing arguments.In her closing statement, Philadelphia Chief Public Defender Keir Bradford-Gray said the case is about a lot of things: race, class. Michael White Pleads Not Guilty to Rittenhouse Killing We cant negate that, she told jurors, adding that White was defending himself against a drunk and aggressive man 50 pounds heavier who threatened to beat the black off him.Assistant District Attorney Sherrell Dandy painted a very different picture for the jury during her closing argument, saying the killing was not justified and urging jurors to hold White accountable for Schellengers death.This case is not about a white victim and a black defendant, she said. Schellenger died for no reason.The 14-person jury, which includes two alternates, must decide whether White was justified in killing Schellenger and whether he intended for him to die. In order to convict White of voluntary manslaughter, prosecutors must prove beyond reasonable doubt that White did not act in self-defense.When people are attacked, theyre allowed to defend themselves with force, Bradford-Gray said.Dandy, however, argued that White did not retreat during his fight with Schellenger. Instead, White provoked the victim by calling him a tough guy and brandishing a knife.None of his actions said he was scared, Dandy said.Both Dandy and Bradford-Gray rehashed key moments of the four-day trial during their closing statements. Dandy called mention of Schellengers cocaine use, heavy drinking and prior arrests victim bashing and a distraction from his death.Bradford-Gray echoed her clients testimony from Tuesday, calling Whites actions a series of reactions stemming from his fear of Schellenger. White held his hand up in a stop motion and walked backwards away from Schellenger in an attempt to end the fight. Rather than leaving him alone, Schellenger attacked, she said.He tackled White to teach him a lesson, Bradford-Gray said.White took the stand Tuesday, providing three hours of testimony in his own defense. He said the fight and killing happened in mere seconds, but the memory lingers.I cannot forget that night, he said Tuesday.White said he was riding a red bicycle north along 17th Street near Rittenhouse Square on his way to deliver Popeyes chicken when he came across two stopped cars. The driver of a black Mercedes honked his horn at a gold Taurus idling in front of him, allegedly muttering a racial epithet in his frustration, White said in court Tuesday.I had no intention of killing anyone, he told jurors.Prosecutor Anthony Voci, Jr., chief of the Philadelphia District Attorneys Office homicide unit, argued that White made a series of decisions that ultimately resulted in Schellengers death.You could have pedaled away, Voci said to White during cross examination.White formally pleaded not guiltylast week to all charges.Photo Credit: NBC10 - Alicia Lozano This story uses functionality that may not work in our app. Click here to open the story in your web browser.

10/16/2019 3:30pm

Lee esta historia en espaol aqu.It wasnt supposed to be this way. The house wasnt meant to feel so empty. Reward Rises to $52K in Search for Missing New Jersey Girl Standing in the bedroom she shared with her 5-year-old granddaughter, Norma Prez gazed at her own bed and recalled the young girl curling up beside her underneath the covers. Dulce Mara Alavez had her own small mattress, but rarely did she sleep there.She never liked to sleep alone. She liked it when we hugged her. That way she fell asleep faster, Prez, who is the childs legal guardian, recalled. A Desperate Plea From Mom of Missing 5-Year-Old Dulce Mara Things have changed since the girl vanished from a Bridgeton, New Jersey, park on the afternoon of Sept. 16. Federal, state and local authorities have scoured the area, followed more than 1,000 tips and checked in with registered sex offenders to no avail.We dont understand why this happened to us. Sometimes its really hard to believe that this has happened to our family, Noema Alavez Prez, Dulce Maras mother, lamented. FBI Talked with Dulces Father in Mexico Still No New Leads Alavez Prez recalled how happiness turned into sorrow the day her daughter went missing. It was supposed to be a joyous day. Dulce Mara loved pizza and her mother planned to take her to her favorite restaurant, the one that always made her happy.Instead, a stop at the park led to the girls disappearance, with authorities working on the hypothesis that she was abducted by a man as she played at Bridgeton City Park.Police described the suspect as a light-skinned male who appeared to be between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-8 inches tall with a thin build. He was clean-shaven and had acne on his face. The suspect wore orange sneakers possibly Nike, red pants and a black T-shirt.In hopes of finding her, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has added Dulce Mara to its Most Wanted list for kidnapping victims. A reward for information leading to her return stands at $52,000.Federal agents have spoken to the childs biological father, who lives in Mexico. Alavez Prez, too, has been questioned, though authorities said she has been helpful.Most recently, police released a sketch of a possible witness.All the leads have come up dry.Its really been hard for us because shes always been in the house with my mom, Alavez Prez said. Its very quiet now without her.Despite the time that has elapsed since Dulce Mara vanished, both her family and the authorities are clinging to hope.We have not given up and remain hopeful that we will determine the circumstances that led to Dulces disappearance, Cumberland County Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae said in a statement. ... We are still looking for that one piece of information that cracks this case. We need the publics help to do so.Likewise, Alavez Prez looks forward to the day when she might be able to hold her daughter in her arms once again.I have faith in God that hes going to bring her back safe and sound, Alavez Prez said.Photo Credit: Family photo

10/16/2019 4:41pm

Hometown roots paid off for presidential candidates with ties to the Philadelphia region in the first half of the year.Former Vice President Joe Biden - who lives in Delaware, was born in Scranton and operates his national campaign headquarters from Philadelphia - pulled in more than $1 million from Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey since launching his campaign in April. New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker raised $3 million from the three states combined most of it from New Jersey, according to campaign finance filings with the Federal Election Commission. Hunter Biden: Trump Attacks Based on Ridiculous Conspiracy Biden raised about $938,000 in Pennsylvania for the period, more than the other top three Democratic fundraisers in the keystone state Sen. Bernie Sanders D-VT, Sen. Elizabeth Warren D-MA and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg D - combined. Biden also brought in $297,000 from Delaware, a state he represented in the Senate for more than three decades, and collected $246,000 from donors in New Jersey. Biden announced his campaign in April, so his fundraising covers a shorter period than most of his competitors.Booker raised $2.82 million from donors in his home state of New Jersey, making it his top state for fundraising. That total from New Jersey also bests the per candidate fundraising hauls from the nationals largest state, California, for Biden, Warren and Sanders each of whom had California as their number one source for campaign money. Californias Sen. Kamala Harris far outraised them in her home state, bringing in $7.55 million from California. Buttigieg raised $4.32 million from there.
