Guilty Plea, Indictment in Christine Richardson Murder

Lloyd Chase, 17, of the 2100 block of McHenry Street pleaded guilty today to "accessory after a fact to murder" as his trial was scheduled to begin in Baltimore Circuit Court. Sentencing will be held sub-curia until after he testifies in a related case. Chase will face a maximum penalty of five years in prison. The Baltimore City Grand jury indicted Chase August 3, 2007 for first-degree murder and other counts. The Grant Jury also indicted Calvin Puryear, 20, of the 2600 block of Dulaney Street.
