(AP) A man charged with killing his neighbors' baby and the girl's grandmother in a botched kidnapping is due in court Wednesday for a preliminary hearing.


Authorities say 26-year-old Raghunandan Yandamuri (rag-oo-NAHN'-dahn yahn-duh-MOHR'-ee) hoped to get $50,000 ransom from the infant's parents. They are software engineers who lived in the same apartment complex near Philadelphia.


Prosecutors say the grandmother, 61-year-old Satyavathi Venna, let the suspect in while the parents were at work on Oct. 22.


They say Yandamuri fatally stabbed the grandmother during a struggle and suffocated the baby. He became a suspect days later when they canvassed residents of the complex.


According to a police affidavit, he eventually led them to the body of the missing 10-month-old, Saanvi Venna, in a basement fitness center.
