Philadelphia police have charged two men with murder in a carjacking and subsequent crash that killed three children and critically injured their mother as they were selling fruit on a street corner.
Police say Johnathan Rosa and Cornelius Crawford have each been charged with three counts of felony murder and other crimes. Authorities also have charged that the carjack victim was sexually assaulted before the men crashed her sport utility vehicle.
Defense lawyer Christopher Warren says Rosa got in the vehicle after Crawford carjacked it. He says Rosa will regret that decision the rest of his life but is now cooperating with police.
The arrests follow a three-day manhunt underway since the Friday carjacking and crash. The family had been selling fruit for a church fundraiser.
