SEPTA Union Contract Expiring; Killed Husband With Anti-Freeze/Steroids; PHC Approves iPic Boyd Plan

The contract between SEPTA and it's largest union is set to expire tonight at midnight. Despite the unlikelihood of a workers' strike from Transport Workers Union Local 234, SEPTA does have plans in place in case of service interruption. TWU represents 5,200 bus, subway, and trolley operators inside the City of Philadelphia. Negotiations between SEPTA and Local 234 are continuing. Union officials say that talks of a strike are premature. If a strike does happen, Regional Rail, CCT and suburban transit will continue to run.

A Delaware woman is being accused of killing her husband by mixing anti-freeze with his steroids. Jamie Baker of Smyrna, DE, called police on September 16th, 2013 to report finding her husband, James, dead in their bedroom. The autopsy found that 42-year-old James died from Ethylene Glycol poisoning. During the ensuing investigation police discovered that James had ordered steroids online last June and planned to use them with a friend. He apparently kept them in his toolbox. Yesterday, authorities searched the Baker home. Jaime admitted to using a syringe to withdraw anti-freeze from a container in the garage and inject it into bottles of her husband's steroids. Jamie Baker, 44, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder and related counts. She is being held without bail.

The Philadelphia Historical Commission granted approval today for a Florida-based based company to partially demolish the Boyd Theater. The commission sided with iPic, who wants to turn the historic building at 1908 Chestnut St. into a eight-screen multiplex and restaurant. The company plans to save the facade of the building outside but will gut the insides include the ornate art deco lobby and auditorium. The Friends of the Boyd had hoped for a different outcome. They even had a competing offer that would save the entire theater. The Boyd was the last of the great movie houses still left in the city.
