PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A Philadelphia man whose former girlfriend allegedly offered $1,000 on Facebook for someone to kill him has been gunned down hours after a judge upheld felony charges against his ex and the teen who allegedly offered to kill him.
Police say 22-year-old Corey White was shot Monday evening in West Philadelphia, but investigators aren't sure why he was killed.
Earlier Monday, a city judge approved murder solicitation and murder conspiracy charges, respectively, against his ex-girlfriend and the 18-year-old who allegedly responded to her post in June.
Authorities say 20-year-old London Eley made a post offering "a stack" to kill her baby's father. They say Timothy Bynum said he'd do it.
Eley's attorney says she was venting after an argument.
The Philadelphia Inquirer first reported White's death.
