Another one!

WMAR reports that another pastor, James Omar Clea, was arrested in Orangeburg, SC for the murder of Lemuel Wallace.

Also, police tweet: "3200 NORMOUNT AVE 2 males shot. Police working crime scene, avoid area."

Pastor, Grifter, Murderer

What the?! The man who has confessed to killing Lemuel Wallace was a "businessman" indeed-- a pastor who allegedly murdered him for the insurance money, a la Olga and Helen in LA. Police say he had taken six policies out on the victim (did he think no one would notice that?)
More from Hermann.

And TG that alleged homicidal alleged rapist Ronnie Winkler = in jail.

Please tell me English is a second language for whoever wrote this story and its homoerotic headline...

Weinstein Goes to Washington

Steven Levin tells us that Jason Weinstein, Chief of the Violent Crime Section in the US Attorney’s Office in the District of Maryland, will leave the MD office to become Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Criminal Division under Eric "Nation of Cowards" Holder. Weinstein is perhaps best known around town for his work on the case against one Edward T. Norris.

more saucy details of the Black Guerrilla Family indictments from the CP's Edward Ericson Jr.


A 70-something Calvin Hayes and 63-year-old Harold Able Sr., both shot in their cars in separate incidents last week, were apparently hack cab drivers.

It IS a small town! The CP reports that businessman John Zorzit, owner of Club 410, is now "the nexus for three current federal investigations" and the sentence of the day:
"But the Zorzit case--which received attention after a forfeiture action was filed against him in January because for 14 years he used the brother of Baltimore County Councilman John Olszewski (D-6th District) as a runner to collect the money from his illegal slot machines--is perhaps more interesting for the amounts of money involved (the feds seized close to $1.2 million in bank accounts and more than $41,000 in cash--including some above the ceiling tiles in an office bathroom) and for his links to Harris."

Supreme Court: cops need a warrant to search your car

Pot-smoking lawyer suspended for trying to expunge himself

At a hearing Monday, Judge John Carroll Byrnes sentenced Jason Allen, 26, to life in prison for the first degree murder of Jeff Payne. A Baltimore Jury convicted Allen of first-degree murder January 15, 2009 after a week-long trial. Details from Jessamy's office:
On February 15, 2008 at approximately, 12:45 AM Allen entered an apartment in the Morgan View Apartments, a Student Housing Complex catering to Morgan State University Students, where he took out a rifle and shot and killed Jeff Payne. Payne suffered a single gunshot wound to the chest and died at the scene. Immediately after the shooting the defendant fled Baltimore for Yonkers, New York, where authorities eventually apprehended and arrested him April 21, 2008. Exactly one year from this arrest, the defendant was sentenced.

During an emotional victim impact statement, Payne’s family told the judge about how the victim survived years of civil war in Liberia, only to be gunned down in the United States. Despite the loss of their eldest son, the family expressed gratitude to the Baltimore City Police Department for their tireless efforts in bringing the defendant to justice.

A co-defendant in this case, Powerful Aguilar pled guilty to accessory after the fact and was sentenced April 7, 2009 to a suspended five year prison term. Assistant State’s Attorney Charles Blomquist of the Homicide Division prosecuted this case.
