    Suspects on Trial in Montgomery County Home Invasion Killing

    A prosecutor alleges that a man charged in a suburban Philadelphia home invasion slaying last fall had told his former girlfriend that "If we can't be together, someone's got to go."

    Twenty-one-year-old Naadir Abdul-Ali is charged in Montgomery County in the shooting death of the woman's father hours later.

    Police found 53-year-old Kevin Brown on the front lawn of the Lower Moreland Township home with a gunshot wound to the neck.

    Twenty-one-year-old Desmond Smith and another man are also charged. A fourth defendant pleaded guilty to third-degree murder and is expected to testify against the others.

    Smith's attorney says his client was nowhere near the scene that night. Abdul-Ali's attorney argues that it was all part of a staged kidnapping that wasn't his client's idea.
