2 arraigned, denied bail in deadly Pa. carjacking


PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Two men accused of carjacking a woman in north Philadelphia and plowing into a family selling fruit on a street corner, killing three children, have been ordered held without bail.

Court documents show that 23-year-old Cornelius Crawford and 19-year-old Johnathan Rosa were arraigned early Tuesday on charges including murder, kidnapping, conspiracy, robbery, aggravated assault and sexual assault.

Police announced the charges Monday, saying they believe the two forced a real estate agent into her sport utility vehicle and took off at high speed, only to crash about 15 minutes later a mile away.

Killed were 15-year-old Keiearra Williams, 10-year-old Thomas Reed and 7-year-old Terrence Moore, who had been selling fruit for a church fundraiser. Their mother was injured, as were a friend who was nearby and the carjacked woman.
