Man killed Sunday in Northeast Philadelphia

Philadelphia Police found a 41-year-old man dead Sunday inside a home on Holly Road, not far from Thornton Street and Woodhaven Road in Northeast Philadelphia, but the circumstances of his death were at first unclear.

Now, NBC10 is reporting that police have arrested and charged 23-year-old James Kelly with murder and related offenses in connection with the incident, and has identified the victim as Kelly’s stepfather, 41-year-old Rafael Santiago.


As of Tuesday morning, the Philadelphia Police Crime Maps and Stats page reported 200 homicides during 2014, seven more than had been reported by the same date last year.
