9 Jurors Chosen for Accused Baby, Grandmom Killer's Trial

Nine jurors have been chosen for the Pennsylvania murder trial of a man charged in a botched kidnapping that left a grandmother and infant dead.

Prosecutors believe Raghunandan Yandamuri hoped to collect $50,000 ransom for the 10-month old girl to settle gambling debts.

They say the grandmother was babysitting in October 2012 when she was killed in a struggle with the intruder. The baby was later found dead in the basement of the King of Prussia apartment building.

The 27-year-old Yandamuri is representing himself in the capital murder case. He plans to argue that two other people committed the crimes.

Montgomery County police describe him as a family friend of the infant's software-engineer parents. Authorities say he had lost $15,000 at a nearby casino.
