Details on: Lee Kaplan Trial, Skimming Device Found at Gas Station, and Three Mile Island to Close

Jury Selection Underway in "Gifting" Case - The process of picking a jury for the trial of Lee Kaplan is underway at the Bucks County Courthouse.  Kaplan is accused of sexually assaulting young girls that were gifted to him by their parents.  Investigators say Kaplan also fathered two children with one of the girls.  WFMZ's Bo Koltnow will have live reports from Doylestown on 69 News at 4 and 6.

Skimming Device Found at Berks Gas Station - Police in Caernarvon Township say a customer found a skimming device on a card reader at the register inside the Sheetz on Main Street over the weekend.  The device apparently popped out when the customer's card got stuck.  WFMZ's Amanda VanAllen will have the search for the suspect at 4:30 and 5:30.

Three Mile Island to Close - The owner of Three Mile Island, site of the nation's worst commercial nuclear power accident, says it'll shut down the plant in 2019 without a financial rescue from Pennsylvania.  Chicago-based Exelon Corp. said Monday's announcement comes after five years of losses on the power plant and its failure last week in an auction to sell Three Mile Island's power into the regional grid.
