May 9

The trial of Cedric Stancil, 28, of Poplar Street, was scheduled to begin at 9:30 this morning before Judge Paul A. Smith. On March 1, 2004, the Baltimore City Grand Jury indicted Stancil for the July 9, 2003 shooting death of Edwin Boyd, 17, in the 2300 Block of E. Oliver Street. Stancil was also indicted for conspiracy to murder.

At a hearing this morning, Charles Carroll, a teacher arrested for raping a student and other sex offenses was given "no bail" status. Carroll's preliminary hearing is set for May 31 at North Avenue District Court in Room 1.

Also given "no bail" status was Ross Talp, accused of killing his mother. His preliminary hearing is set for June 2 at Wabash District Court in Room 6 at 8:30 a.m.

At a hearing today, Thomas Anthony White, 46, of North Washington Street, pled guilty to second-degree murder. Judge John Glynn sentenced White to 25 years in prison. Says the prosecutor's office:
On January 15, 2004 at approximately 9:30 p.m., Joann Betty Dunn, 51, of the 200 block of North Linwood Avenue, was found lying in a pool of blood on her kitchen floor with numerous cuts and stab wounds throughout her body and a large screwdriver sticking out of right side of her head. Several latent prints were recovered from the scene and upon comparative analysis, White's left thumbprint and right palm print were identified. White's DNA profile was also obtained from evidence samples recovered from the crime scene.

On January 21, 2004 at 9:30 AM, Thomas Anthony White was arrested at 3617 Pulaski Highway on the charge of first-degree murder. The defendant executed a written wavier of his rights and gave a tape-recorded confession of his involvement in the murder of Joann Betty Dunn. According to White, he was under the influence of narcotics when he went to the victim's home to ask for money. When the victim refused and drew a knife, he took the knife and stabbed her.
Assault, robbery and a guy who shot himself in the leg in the Blotter.

The murder trial of Alveate Jerome Wallace, 35, is scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. tomorrow before Judge John M. Glynn (that guy seems to get all the really depressing ones). The Baltimore City Grand Jury indicted Wallace March 3 of last year for the January 24, 2004 first-degree murder of Shella Christian, 42. He was also indicted for the attempted first-degree murder of Christian's six-year old son. The alleged incident occurred on Seagull Avenue in Cherry Hill.

The murder trial of Charles Norfolk, 42, is scheduled to begin at 9:30 tomorrow morning before Judge Joseph P. McCurdy. The Baltimore City Grand Jury indicted Norfolk August 9, 2004 for first-degree murder in connection with the stabbing death of 47-year old Vincent Fitzgibbons.

A 15-year-old in Brooklyn Park is charged with reckless endangerment after shooting his girlfriend in the face and lying about who did it.

And 15-year-old Christopher Gaines has turned himself in following the stabbing at the Coppin State gym.

In Hagerstown, Scott Patterson has been charged with beating his three-year-old daughter to death for spilling water.
