#PhillyFive Developing Stories: April 3, 2015

Your early look at the day's developing stories.

Here's your look at five stories we're following today:

1. Sheridan Case: Sons of Cooper CEO John Sheridan are interviewed on Good Morning American and blast investigation into their parents' deaths, saying finding of murder-suicide is a cover-up for shoddy police work.

2. Gun charge pardon:  Gov. Christie pardons Philadelphia woman who had faced up to five years in prison for bringing into the state a gun that was legally registered in Pennsylvania but not in New Jersey.

3. Religious-freedom debate: Pennsylvania Democrats, including Gov. Wolf,  have grabbed onto the controversy over religious freedom laws in other states to bolster their bid for a state ban on discrimination against gays.

4. Mayoral race: Some of the Democrats seeking their party's nomination for mayor are no strangers to packing heat.

5. Casinos: Is the Revel bankruptcy saga finally over? In the meantime, the fight rages on in an effort to turn the shuttered Showboat casino into a Stockton University campus.
