Charged with the two homicides was Raghunandan "Raghu" Yandamuri, 26, also a resident of the Marquis Apartments. Dressed in leg irons and a bulletproof vest, he was arraigned and held without bail pending a preliminary hearing Nov. 2. A crowd of about 100 - including some children - jeered obscenities at him as he was led from the courthouse.

Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman said Yandamuri killed Satayrathi Venna while the woman tried to defend the baby.
...
Yandamuri was on that list.
On Thursday, he was interviewed by Upper Merion police detectives. Police say he told them that he had no idea who killed the grandmother or stole the baby. In fact, he said, he had created a missing-child poster with two photographs of Saanvi and made about 200 copies, which he delivered to the family for distribution. He said he also attended the Wednesday night candlelight vigil to support the family.
Later in the interview, according to the arrest papers, he admitted his role in both deaths. Police say he told them he targeted the Vennas because both husband and wife worked and he believed they had money.
Yandamuri, who married in April, apparently was desperate for money.
On the Friday before the killing, Yandamuri spoke by telephone with his friend of eight years, Chendu Tummala, with whom he had attended undergraduate school in India.
...
Before moving to King of Prussia in September, Yandamuri had shared an apartment in San Jose with Rashivar Karnati, 25, a graduate student at San Jose State University. They were introduced by Tummala. When they were roommates, said Karnati, he was a student and Yandamuri worked as a software specialist for eBay.
According to Karnati, Yandamuri came to the United States in 2007 to attend Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, but the registrar's office said Friday it had no record of his attendance.
Karnati said he only caught up with the news about the missing baby Friday morning via the Internet. A few hours later, he learned that his old roommate had been arrested.
"He was always close to us and friendly," said Karnati. The news is "shocking . . . because he was not that kind of guy."
A starkly different view emerges from Yandamuri's alleged confession to police. In it, he is quoted as saying he was carrying a kitchen knife with a four-inch blade when he showed up at the Vennas' apartment about 11 a.m. Monday.
According to the document:
When the grandmother opened the door to the apartment, he threatened her with the knife, forcing her to retreat into the kitchen. He saw the baby sitting on the couch and picked her up. During a struggle with the grandmother, Yandamuri dropped the child and ultimately cut the woman's throat.
