PHILADELPHIA - A teen carjacking suspect said he hopes for forgiveness for the crash that killed a Philadelphia woman and her three children in July.
Johnathan Rosa said he's "going to ask for forgiveness from the family" of Keisha Williams.
Rosa, 19, waived his right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday and blurted out the statement as he left court. Lawyer Chris Warren said Rosa learned only minutes earlier that the 34-year-old mother died of her injuries last week.
Williams' young children died the day of the July 25 crash and have already been buried. Her funeral is set for Thursday.
None of Williams' relatives was in court.
Rosa and co-defendant Cornelius Crawford allegedly crashed the stolen vehicle into the family on a busy street corner.
Crawford's hearing has been postponed until October.
Pennsylvania's highest court is limiting the power of prosecutors to seize people's property through civil actions.Read More »
