Family Photos Show Firebomb Victims: The Kaboni Savage Drug Kingpin Trial In Philadelphia
Veteran organized crime reporter George Anastasia is covering the federal Kaboni Savage drug kingpin trial in Philadelphia for Bigtrial.net.
The family photos brought tears to the eyes of government witness Eugene Coleman.
His mother, Marcella, 54, smiling in her living room. His sister, Tameka Nash, 34, hugging her 10-year-old daughter, Khadjah. Another photo of Khadjah smiling impishly. A nephew.
Tahj Porchea, 12, standing tall and proud. And Coleman's infant son, Damir Jenkins, 15-months, laughing in his father's arms.
Each color photo was flashed on large television screens in the eighth floor courtroom where Coleman was testifying in the racketeering-murder trial of drug kingpin Kaboni Savage.
Family members in happier times.
Family members killed when their North Sixth Street rowhouse was firebombed in the early morning hours of Oct. 9, 2004, on the orders, authorities allege, of Savage.
