Kyle R. Adams delivered the fatal blow in the 2016 beating of Donavin Yenser. Before sentencing Kyle Adams Monday for his role in the Pagoda murder, Judge Eleni Dimitriou Geishauser said she’s always been disturbed by the fact that no one stepped in to save 18-year-old Donavin Yenser. As Adams and his friends chased Yenser and eventually went over a guardrail to the spot where he was brutally beaten, the rest of the young adults gathered on Mount Penn Dec. 6, 2016, drove away.
The jury found Adams, 22, not guilty of first-degree murder and conspiracy, but found him guilty of third-degree murder, aggravated assault, possession of a weapon, conspiracy and other related charges.
A Reading man admitted this afternoon in Berks County Court that he fatally shot a Hamburg man in broad daylight during a drug deal in the city in April 2016. Jajour Caceres, 20, of the 900 block of Old Wyomissing Road pleaded guilty before Judge M. Theresa Johnson to third-degree murder and carrying a firearm without a license in the case. Johnson sentenced Caceres to 18 to 40 years in state prison as part of a plea agreement.
The trial began Monday and each day there has been a large group of supporters present for the victim. The group has been waiting outside of the courtroom for nearly four hours now as they wait for the verdict.
The defense is arguing Valentin-Bair acted in self-defense as a group beat him, but prosecutors say the evidence shows the stabbing happened during a one-on-one fist fight between the defendant and victim.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
