NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) – A man sentenced to death in the killings of a baby and her grandmother in what prosecutors call a botched kidnapping plot says he’s so dissatisfied with his attorneys he’d rather be executed now than continue seeking a new trial with them.
Raghunandan Yandamuri accuses the attorneys of not responding to his calls or letters. He said Monday in Montgomery County Court if his appeal keeps going the same way he would rather be executed immediately.
The judge calls that “a little dramatic.”
Attorney Henry Hilles says he and Stephen Heckman have spent more time with their client “than has ever occurred in Montgomery County history.”
Yandamuri was a technology professional from India. He was convicted of murder in the 2012 slayings of 10-month-old Saanvi Venna and 61-year-old Satayrathi Venna in King of Prussia.
