Lee Stephens is Guilty

Lee Stephens has been convicted of murdering CO David McGuinn at the now-closed Maryland House of Correction in 2006.


The 15th homicide of the the year has occurred in the sleepy Windsor Hills neighborhood in Northwest Baltimore. An as of yet unidentified 62-year-old man was found shot in the head in the 2900 block of Haverford Rd.*

Two men get serious time for attempting to kill a third man in front of his mother. Tavon Jackson , 27, and Dijon McClurkin, 20, were sentenced to 75 and 60 years respectively for the April 2010 attempted murder.

The Robocall trial of former Ehrlich consultant Julius Henson, 62, has experienced an unexpected delay.

Maximum time for a man who cut an Olympic boxing hopeful's life short. Terrance Sims, age 31, who had already been convicted of manslaughter once before, was given a 10 year sentence after having been convicted of killing 17-year-old Ronald Gibbs.*

Historical document thief Barry Landau, 63, has plead guilty. He faces up to 15 years when sentenced in May.

This week's crime blotter has a variety of weird crimes, including a panty raid gone too far, an assault on a sick man, and two men caught absconding with a stolen refrigerator.

43-year-old Robert Mclean has been busted for committing this years 12th homicide.

County police are still ISO Renard Antonio Hunt Jr., accused of shooting up an office in Woodlawn.

Speaking of people County police are searching for, keep your eyes peeled for daytime burglar Alvin Saleem Elamin Thompson, 20.

Finally, a little tip for those of you out their with a vendetta against the ATF. No a matter how angry you are, don't threaten to kill any, and I mean any, federal agents, especially ATF agents. If you snap and do threaten to kill one, for the love of god don't repeat your threats word for word in the company of possible recording devices. If you do, expect to recieve an eight year sentence, just like Craig Allen Shepperd, 38, did.
