routes home every day. don't park the the car in the same lot every day, you know, stuff like that. it is just a shame. she's a very nice lady. >> reporter: so again here's the the van that police have not recovered yet. likely stolen. likely dumped somewhere. surprised it hasn't been torched somewhere. it is red and maroon with white graffiti on the side. chances are not registered to any of these guys but nobody reported a van like this stolen either. police are hoping somebody from the public spots this. that would be one of the many pieces of evidence that police have but they are expecting to have some good evidence, from these machine machines and they may put it out. since sabina did this at headquarters yesterday not only did they not the put out surveillance of the van but we know woman is out of the hospital but she doesn't think she's out of danger since she is guys essentially stole her identity taking her drivers licenses and keys. she does not feel safe there knowing that these guys are out there. who knows what else they told her while they were punching
7:11 am

7:12 am
critical condition at children's hospital of philadelphia. a law firm representing the families say the epa is investigating. the firm says quote many questions remain, why an odorless pesticide of this level of toxicity could be manufactured, distributed, and a applied in a residential area resulting in this family's injuries. my goodness. carbon monoxide poisoning is blame for a death of the family in princes ann, maryland. officials say they started using a generator when their electricity was turn off due to an outstanding bill and they never realized the deadly gas was in their home. a father was killed with his seven children range nothing age from six to 16. their bodies were discover yesterday when the man's supervisor became concerned that he had not been to work. loved ones are upset. >> he had to do something to keep his kid warm in that house. he had to do something. >> the community and system failed him. a father taking care of seven

7:14 am
evidence for support of her claims. the fraternity is saying it will take legal action against the magazine. >> yes, they are suing rolling stone magazine. what do you do when you can't get in touch with your husband, to serve him divorce papers? you just can't find the guy, right? well, one attorney is serving divorce papers for his clients through a facebook message. attorney andrew spinel said he came up with the idea after he tried everything in an attempt to serve divorce papers of the husband of one of his clients. the wife only able to communicate via phone or facebook. attempts to meet up in person, would go ary. she cannot find the guy. she doesn't even have an address where he is living. the lawyer says after five years of jumping through hoops, a judge ruled he can use his facebook page to leave a message that she has filed
7:15 am
for divorce. >> it has to be realized by everyone that this is a service as a last resort, only under these circumstances they call it service by alternate means, when everything else fails is this to be used. >> so that attorney says he has sent the in message now, over the last two weeks and will send one more, next week. if the husband does not reply bye then the attorney says they are moving forward without him. coming up in the 9:00 o'clock hour we will bring in our attorney to talk about this, is this the wave of the future. >> wow, facebook message. >> yeah. >> i guess if you are not responding, do you check your facebook messages. >> i try to every day, yeah. >> it is easier if you send comments because i cannot check it on my phone, messages. can you imagine someone left a comment i'm filing for divorce. >> best way to get a held of me to divorce me is twitter. i check that more than facebook. >> i'm getting divorced. >> boom, done.
7:16 am
>> i owe $1,700 a month. >> all right. >> sue, i cannot believe it is coming to this. >> there has to be a way to see if there is red it. >> facebook will tell if you someone read it. >> let's talk about the weather and talk about is what happening over our temperature roller coaster ride. we are still in the warm front which means we're still mild. we got the to 75 degrees yesterday. we have retained that warmth because of the cloud overnight. we will have this on shore flow, from the high pressure system to our north which means cloud, coming off of the ocean, and then this system, coming southward, lets in chilly air from the north the next couple of days. it will be cloudy, damp and chilly a as this front stalls, wednesday, and thursday. friday it comes back as a warm front and mild air returns as well but we have got a couple of chilly days ahead. i hope you didn't put away the sweaters. we have dover, delaware with decent rain this morning and then we will move across the river in new jersey abe you
7:17 am
will see parts of the salem county, bridgeton, new jersey, getting some steady rain, pit grove as well, and up to browns mills and other places in burlington county. you will see steady rain, umbrella worthy to be sure with you you it is 47 in mount pocono. that is chilly. you don't need really heavy winter gear. fifty-seven in philadelphia a we are already at 61 in dover, delaware. lancaster has 53 degrees right now. so the peak of the week, of the past seven days was yesterday. so that was the high of 57 degrees. the we're not going to get that warm in the next seven. we will be close on friday. after that warm front comes through. the it is very unsettled the next couple of days. not raining every single minute but off and on showers today, rainy and much colder tomorrow. 68 degrees today to 48 tomorrow. then, on friday -- thursday and friday, still rainy but a big difference in temperature
7:18 am
once again as we go from 50 on thursday, backup to friday's high of 73 with some thunderstorms. then it calms down. we will get back to sunshine both saturday and sunday. so bob kelly, you definitely need that umbrella this morning. >> first one out of the house gets the best umbrella this morning. >> there we go. >> we are all fighting for it at the the umbrella stand behind the front door there. good morning to moorestown, new jersey and an example of the wet road out here in south jersey, it is hit and miss depending upon where you begin and end your trip. roads are wet. here's a live look at route one down here near route 72 in delaware, certainly got wipers working today. and kind of smack in the middle here of the blue route 476 still dry working your way through route one in delaware county. again, road conditions are starting to change just enough to kind of make it a little yucky and put those wipers on that intermittent stage. lets go westbound 422, i told but that overturned truck. somebody just tweeted me a
7:19 am
picture of that overturn truck sitting on the highway here. it looks like one of those tractor trailers taking out what would be the the left lane as you head west on 422, between sanatoga and arm and hammer. that will cause a delay for the daze. and then a truck fire on the pennsylvania turnpike, this is all westbound, out near that valley forge interchange so keep that in mind, already delay new from willow grove in through fort washington. for the the gang in new jersey find your normal delays on the 42 freeway heading in to 295. airport so far so good and no delays on mass transit. alex, back over to you. 7:19. could we soon see planes without pilots. the the deadly germanwings crash is sparking debate including whether pilots are even necessary on commercial flights. could it actually happen. jurors are set to begin deliberations in the boston bombing trial this morning, what they will to have decide to determine if dzhokhar tsarnaev gets the death penalty.
7:20 am
7:21 am
7:22 am
7:23 am
how does it feel? you know. >> a little sad. >> you know, yesterday, be grateful for yesterday, alex. >> look at you. >> okay. are you grateful. >> i'll tell you this, gratitude is my new attitude. >> and every day you say it is new, you know why, because he is not really feeling that. >> i start every day i hope i will be grateful. >> at least you are trying. >> would you get on a airplane without a pilot. let's say that the airplane was being controlled by a mouse with a man or woman on the ground controlling the airplane, lauren, is this actually a possibility. >> yes, it is. it is a possibility. it is something that is being spoken about, maybe, both pilots will be computers or robots. maybe one human pilot ape co pilot the that is a computer or robot or automated system. we're not sure. have after that crazy deadly
7:24 am
incident when germanwings co pilot purposely crashed that plane in the alps some people are saying why not, can we trust the computer more. will this get off the ground anytime soon? probably not. but if you asked me about driverless cars i probably would have said probably not. what i can tell you is that the government, pentagon and research agencies they are working on fighter jets and military aircraft that use robots, not the just drones but actual robots, in the the cockpit. so we will see. >> this has been, this has been tested, over in europe. i have seen video of it. three people, went into a plane, pilot, co pilot and passenger in the back. i think it was a reporter. a guy on the ground took control of the airplane with a mouse at his desk. >> oh, yeah. >> germanwings thing they could have, when pilot could not get back in the cockpit somebody on the ground should have taken over the the plane, is that the idea.
7:25 am
>> that would be a great idea if that could happen. you have the human pilot on the plane, human judgment but then you have a system where you can take control if you have to. >> yes. >> a backup. >> yes. >> i think if there is a human pilot there as well, then it sound better but i don't know about the robot. >> captain sully preferably, right. >> sully sullenberger. >> yes, but somebody has already done it, is there one man who has been doing this, his name is george jetson, you may have heard of him. >> i think so. >> yes, on that net we're out of here. see you tomorrow. >> see you guys, bye. >> we say this all the time. number one cause of death for woman is not breast cancer, it is heart disease. so why do they refuse to go to the hospital when they have symptoms, lot of woman will hesitate just like a guy they won't go to the hospital. the one simple thing that can save a woman's life we will tell you what it is after the break. and lets get to jen.

>> she's two floors above us. >> i thought were you running to get it. >> she in must be reglazing the mug on the way down. >> you got to cut the box open. >> it is sitting on my desk, exposed. >> yes. >> i could have run up there and gotten it by myself. >> not the way you run. >> look at that run. >> come on. >> yes. >> where is she. >> we will do it have after weather. >> let's look at bus stop buddy. a note for at tire, it is rain gear, yes, gorgeous weather from yesterday, it is gone, at least for a few days, we have some rain around not everybody is getting it this morning but we have a little here in olde city and a few places where it is steady. six out of ten in weather by the numbers today. we're talking about all that green you see there on
7:31 am
ultimate doppler radar hanging around for a little while. 57 degrees right now, heading to a high of 68 today. milder air is still with us but won't be for long. we are down to 45 tonight and some chilly times ahead. we will have details for you in the seven day forecast. so, why we anxiously await this amazing mug, bob kelly, tell us what is going on the roads. >> we have an accident on i-95. good morning. this is is a live look southbound lanes right here near academy road, off on to what would be the left shoulder there. you see penndot arrow truck right before academy road. leaving say yardley, bucks county, woodhaven road, heading south, right before academy, you got a little bit of the accident there off to the left and then is there the blue route, 476, heavy between macdade boulevard and route one in delco. is there your speed meter reading, double tooth picks on i-95 southbound approaching
7:32 am
the betsy into girard. 9 miles an hour on that schuylkill expressway. and then on 422, westbound here's a dash cam pick sent to us by one of the viewers there that overturned tractor trailer that is in the left a hand lane of the westbound side of 422 between sanatoga and arm and hammer. the rain is slowing us down not impacting air travel here at philly international. that is not from yesterday. it looks like exact same thing from yesterday. >> that is not from yesterday that is live from today. >> intern brought the mug down. it the is not the right one. can you put it over there. there is two white mugs on my desk. 50/50 chance. >> that is okay. >> she can go get another one. >> elaborate nature of the mug, it is already breathtaking. >> can we not show it after this. >> we're here until ten. >> i need to fill the time.
7:33 am
it is coming down to the end now. jury is set to begin deliberations this morning in the trial of the boston marathon bombing suspects. >> in closing arguments, prosecutors tried to spare the life of the surviving suspect insisting dzhokhar tsarnaev deserves the the death penalty. >> ken rottweiler who has been watching this case very closely. what is the idea this dzhokhar guy, my brother made me do it. >> that is the the defense my older brother made me do it so therefore i should be let go. it will not work by the the way. they will start deliberating in an hour and a half. by noon there will be a guilty verdict. by noon. >> they are saying, basically his brother led every ago of violence and dzhokhar was just following him. >> didn't he put a nap sack down with a bomb in it. >> pressure cooker bomb was in his nap sack. the there is 30 charges against him. law says aiding and a betting is same thing as doing it.
7:34 am
he will be found guilty. real interesting part of this trial is what will happen in the sentencing phase. what is entering is this case was tried in federal court and in the state court do you know why? in federal court they have a death penalty. state court in massachusetts no death penalty. aaron hernandez is being tried in boston in state a court and is there no death penalty in that trial for aaron hernandez but in this trial he is tried in federal court and prosecutors are trying to get the the death penalty. so next phase is whether he gets life in prison. or the death penalty. you and i were talking about this yesterday. which is worse? people think being put to death is worse? i think for a 19 year-old or 21 year-old, putting him in prison for 70 years with all of those prisoners around him who, by the the way, you get beaten if you are a child molester or you are a terrorist. so for 07 years this man is likely to get beaten up almost every week in prison. i personally think that is more harsh punishment then
7:35 am
putting him to death good i a agree completely. >> zero seven to 80 years in a prison. >> yes. >> he killed a kid. >> no doubt bit. >> he intentionally put a backpack near a family. >> we should remember, he did kill four people, one of them we're talking about was an eight year-old. he shot in the head, a security guard like three or four times. there were two other deaths along with the young boy. he killed four people. 264 people were hurt during this. >> right. >> this is a major thing. his defense is ridiculous. i don't know how any lawyer with any credibility argue any defense for this guy but you have to obviously he is entitle toll his defense but real interesting phase will be sentencing phase. under the the sentencing there is an argument they may be able to convince one jury, i was under the the influential of my brother, the whole thing, the the brother's fingerprints, older brother
7:36 am
fingerprints are on the bomb and on all of the things that caused all of the damage. he made me do it. >> they have been saying, the older brother it may not have happened. >> i think that is ridiculous. >> that is defense. >> sentencing phase they only to have convince one person to not give him the death penalty they have to convince all 12 he is guilty. when they did the jury here there was one woman, juror number five, who said she doesn't really believe in the death penalty but she could impose it under certain circumstances. it is likely she could be a hold out. >> when will sentencing happen. >> i don't know, they will schedule it down the road after the guilty conviction. >> good to see you. >> as always, good to see you. lets go back to spring break. >> let's play whiffle ball, that is what i call it. mike, it is real deal thing. it is like a wi: is there reasons you might want to do whiffle ball instead of baseball for your kids.
