March 6

The Baltimore City Grand Jury today indicted Vivian Day, 49, of the 2000 block of W. North Avenue, on charges of first-degree murder. Court documents allege that on December 28, 2006 Vivian Day struck and killed her friend, Nelsene Burnette, 44, with an object during an altercation. Subsequently, court documents allege Ms. Burnette was found in the bedroom closet in Day's apartment. Ms. Burnette had been reported missing by a family member days before Day revealed the location of Ms. Burnette. An arraignment is scheduled for April 6 before Judge Martin P. Welch, Rm 228, Courthouse East. Assistant State's Attorney and Division Chief of Homicide Mark Cohen will prosecute.

Former MD Federal prosecutor Thomas DiBiagio says he was forced out of his job because he had investigators "interested in tracing substantial payments made by a gambling company to a political marketing business in Maryland with ties to Maryland Republicans."
Ehrlich, on the other hand, says he was made ineffective due to lingering resentments over the Edward "R." Norris affair.

The 19-year-old shot on West Hamburg Street and driven to the Hyatt died at Shock Trauma [48].

Dept of WTF?
Tracey Gardner-Tetso, who went missing on her way to a Crüe concert two years ago, is still gone without a trace, and it's implied an estranged husband may be involved somehow.

State police found a human skull and some other creepy crap in a cauldron in Conowingo.

Fledia Powell, nominated for a County panel for the disabled, is accused of talking crazy talk and pulling a shotgun on her son's girlfriend.

Whomever shot Russian intelligence expert Paul Joyal in PGC last week "did not, as law enforcement sources said, take his wallet, the victim's adult son said yesterday."

Charles: Whether Antoine Jones of Waldorf was one of the area's biggest cocaine importers and money launderers, or merely a successful nightclub promoter, the jury simply could not decide.

Ed Norris's middle initial is T, not R.

Uhm, it's, like, the New York Times, I think they would know on account of checking their facts copiously, mkay?

ppatin said...

The Citypaper & ednorris.com both say his middle initial is a T.

Good to see that O'M has taken his mind off of po-dunk issues like the economy and crime and is focusing on our beloved terrapins...

...what a tool.
