PA - Ann Yuille, 25, Philadelphia, 6 May 2004
The two murder charges against Juan Covington - and the investigation into other killings he may have committed - convince at least two crime experts that the former SEPTA employee is a serial killer.
Police are looking into the 1997 disappearance of SEPTA bus driver Brenwanda Smith and the death last year of Temple University nurse Ann Yuille.
Covington's attorney Charles Peruto Jr. - hired by the suspect's sometimes estranged brother James Covington - said, "I can't say whether my client is involved with them [the killings] or not." But, he continued, "he's truly schizophrenic. He was functional. He would function and he didn't know he did something that heinous. He fooled himself and he fooled others."
Covington has confessed to the May 17 shooting of X-ray technician Trish McDermott and to killing his cousin, the Rev. Thomas Lee Devlin in 1998. The confessions were read in court Wednesday and Municipal Judge Marsha Neifield ordered Covington held for trial for both murders.

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

From May 2004:
The smile and round cheeks of Ann Yuille, a 25-year-old mother of five children who worked overtime to provide for her family, could light up a room.
But just two days before Mother's Day, Yuille was found dead early yesterday, in a grassy lot near Ninth Street and Girard Avenue in North Philadelphia, with a single gunshot to the head.
Yuille, who would have celebrated her second wedding anniversary at the end of the month, was dressed in the blue scrub top and white pants she wore as a medical technician at Temple Children's Medical Center. Police said she was last seen alive at 11:30 p.m. Thursday, leaving the parking garage at the hospital.
