Now by everything, I mean everything – Trips to India, marriages, engagements, divorces, deaths, deliveries, mother-in-law’s visit to the U.S. for delivery-assistance, father-in-law’s hernia surgery, H1B extension application, Green Card stamping etc.
Hey Tollywood producers – Make sure you don’t release any of your Mahesh Babu, Allu Arjun, Ram Charan Teja et al, monsterpieces in May 2014.
Montgomery County Common Pleas Court Judge Steven T. O’Neill today set May 5, 2014 as the tentative trial date for the criminal case of notorious Telugu bidda and unsuccessful gambler Raghunandan Yandamuri, who is charged in the twin Venna murders that rocked Pennsylvania in October 2012.
May 5, 2014 – Folks, mark the red letter day in your calendars.
Season 2, the highlight of which is the Trial, is the real deal.
Think of Season 1 (police interrogation, arrest and pre-trial motions) as Chicken 65, the appetizer.
The Trial is the entree, the Dum Biryani you guys have been lusting for. 😉
Yandamuri’s family members are expected to visit Amreeka as witnesses for the trial.
Presumably, the Pennsylvania tax payers will be footing the bill for their visit.
Pennsylvania tax payers are already paying for Yandamuri’s public defender attorneys.
The prosecution is seeking the death penalty for Raghunandan Yandamuri given the heinous nature of the crimes the Telugu bidda is charged with.
Yandamuri – Back in Court
Meanwhile, Raghu Yandamuri was in court today for cross-examination by the prosecution on his motion to suppress his written statement and the bizarre video confession he gave to the police on October 26, 2012 regarding his participation in the crime that led to the death of baby Saanvi Venna and her grandmother Satyavathi Venna in their King of Prussia apartment on October 22, 2012.
Answering questions from Montgomery County Assistant District Attorney Samantha Cauffman, Yandamuri stuck to his story in which he blamed the police.
This is the same tack Yandamuri took in his interview with an Indian TV channel in October 2013.
Yandamuri said today he signed the statements to the police because he felt that was the only way to be able to talk to, and save his wife, who he considered to be in danger.
According to Yandamuri, when he attempted to write about the involvement of three men (who he alleges are the real culprits) the police detectives did not allow him to do so on the ground that there was no time to get into such details.
Judge O’Neill is expected to rule on various motions including suppressing Yandamuri’s written statement to the police and video confession, and barring the death penalty some time next month.
Raghunandan Yandamuri will turn 28 on February 21.
