It's now up to the jury. Did a N.J. man kill a child during a bloody Camden gang war?

Authorities say Brown, 20, belonged to the Centerville Bloods and was feuding with Amir Dixon, a member of the Hoover Crips.  Their dispute spilled into the streets in the 900 block of South Eighth Street, close to the child’s house, in the early evening hours of August 2016.

    It's now up to the jury. Did a N.J. man kill a child during a bloody Camden gang war?
    Closing arguments were held in the riveting murder trial of Tyhan Brown, an alleged Centerville Blood gang member charged with killing an 8-year-old Camden girl who was caught in the crossfire during a street shooting two years ago. Gabrielle "Gabby" Hill-Carter was riding her bike outside her house when a stray bullet hit her in the head.

"That 'lost' space in your cellar can become the loveliest room you ever saw, with a FormStone beauty treatment.

This week, Mx. Rogers comes to the neighborhood.

    Philly's queer cabaret examines the truths (and myths) of Mister Rogers' signature kindness
    The first black-and-white frames of Morgan Neville's Won't You Be My Neighbor show the familiar Fred Rogers at the piano, coolly attempting to place value and meaning on his approach to communicating with children by way of modulation. As a trained classical composer, he knew that some key changes could be managed with ease, and others could not.
