PHILADELPHIA — Investigators filed a murder charge Saturday against a man who they said led police on a wild and deadly car chase through the city Friday that left one bystander dead and two others, including a 4-year-old boy, critically injured.

The chaos began about 10 p.m. Friday, when two 25th Police District officers stopped a silver 2001 Volkswagen Passat in the 4200 block of North Broad Street near Hunting Park Avenue for a traffic violation.
