Kraft Facility Undergoes 'Flexible' Restart After Shooting
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Workers have returned to the Philadelphia Kraft Foods plant where a suspended employee fatally shot two co-workers and wounded a third last week.
The Northeast Philadelphia plant reopened Sunday night, with counselors on hand to help employees cope with the aftermath of Thursday's shooting.
Police say 43-year-old Yvonne Hiller was escorted from the building after being suspended for feuding with co-workers. But authorities say she came back with a gun and shot her three foes in a break room, killing two.
Kraft officials tell The Philadelphia Inquirer the plant will be flexible with workers needing time off, particularly with funerals for the slain victims set for this week.
Hiller is charged with two counts of murder and related counts. A preliminary hearing is set for September 29.
