PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The attorney for a 17-year-old boy charged with shooting two students inside a Philadelphia school gym says his client isn't responsible.

Police have said they charged Raisheem Rochwell based on surveillance video and witness information from the shooting Friday afternoon at Delaware Valley Charter High School. Police say one bullet from a gun Rochwell was holding hit two students, wounding each in an arm.

But Rochwell's attorney, Amato Sanita, says he doesn't believe that account is accurate and says Rochwell "is not the person who will ultimately be responsible for this act."

The teen has been charged as an adult and remained jailed Sunday unable to post $500,000 bond. He faces a preliminary hearing Feb. 6.

The school will resume classes Tuesday, after the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

POTTSVILLE, Pa. (AP) - A judge has upheld charges against a Philadelphia woman accused of helping her 93-year-old father commit suicide through a morphine overdose.

   Prosecutors in Schuylkill County have charged 57-year-old nurse Barbara Mancini with aiding suicide.

 

   A judge refused to drop the charges after a preliminary hearing Thursday.

 

   Pottsville police say Mancini handed Joseph Yourshaw a bottle of liquid morphine at his home in February, leading to his death four days later.

 

   Mancini remains free on bail. A phone at her lawyer's office rang unanswered Thursday evening and he could not be reached for comment.

 

   An advocacy group called Compassion & Choice supports Mancini and says her father had end-stage diabetes and heart problems.

   The group says the U.S. Supreme Court allows dying patients to receive adequate pain relief, even if it hastens their death.
