(AP) The father of a suburban Philadelphia baby killed along with her grandmother in an apparent botched ransom scheme says those tragic deaths should not diminish supporters faith in humanity.


The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Venkata Venna told community members not to lose your hearts at a viewing Sunday for his 10-month-old daughter. The father told well-wishers to remember that people are good.


Saanvi Venna (SAHN'-vee VEHN'-ah) was found dead Friday after police say a neighbor at the family's King of Prussia apartment complex confessed to killing her grandmother on Monday and absconding with the girl.


Authorities say 61-year-old Satayrathi Venna (saht-yah-VAH'-thee VEHN'-ah) died trying to protect her granddaughter.


Family friend Raghunandan Yandamuri is charged in their deaths. Officials say he planned to ransom the girl for $50,000.
