Verdicts Read at Horrific Home Invasion Case
Twenty-seven men who received prostate brachytherapy at the Philadelphia VA and four veterans' wives are seeking a total $58 million in damages for radiation errors at the hospital from 2002 to 2008, according to documents obtained by The Inquirer through a Freedom of Information Act request.
Two people were convicted Thursday of a San Diego home invasion robbery during which victims were doused with lighter fluid and a woman was raped.
Kevin Sellers Jr. and Vanna Chheun were found guilty of a combined 35 felony charges. Sellers faces up to 71 years in prison and Chheun faces up to 23 years when they're sentenced in February.
A third suspect remains at large.
Authorities said the suspects stormed into a home in the Redwood Village neighborhood in October 2008, tied up three renters at gunpoint and demanded money. When the homeowners returned some hours later, the husband was tied up and the wife was raped.
Authorities said the robbers doused some victims with lighter fluid and threatened to burn them.
