(AP) An infant girl who disappeared from her family's suburban Philadelphia apartment earlier this week has been found dead, and a family friend is charged in her death and her grandmother's killing.


Ten-month-old Saanvi Venna (SAHN'-vee VEHN'-ah) had been missing since Monday, the day her 61-year-old grandmother was found slain in the family's Upper Merion Township apartment.


Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman says a family friend planned to kidnap the girl and ransom her for $50,000.


Ferman says that plan went awry when Satyavathi Venna (saht-yah-VAH'-thee VEHN'-ah) was killed trying to fight the man off.


An autopsy is under way on the girl. Ferman says her body was found in the basement of another building in the apartment complex.
