Baltimore County Executive Roger B. Hayden and his wife, Nancy, yesterday reached a settlement on ending their marriage of nearly six years and she withdrew her divorce suit against him.
John F. Eckhart, attorney for the executive, refused to disclose the terms of the agreement, confining all comment to a one-paragraph statement which said the Haydens "have reached a mutual agreement on the issues surrounding the dissolution of their marriage. The couple remain separated and will pursue an amicable divorce."
"I am pleased that we reached an agreement," Mr. Hayden said. He declined to comment further.
The notice of dismissal was filed in county Circuit Court by Richard J. Reinhardt, Mrs. Hayden's attorney.
"We're very satisfied," Mr. Reinhardt said.
Mrs. Hayden, who works as a county elementary school supervisor, was not available for comment.
Mrs. Hayden filed suit for divorce early last month, charging physical and mental cruelty and adultery.
The Haydens have been separated since May 20, although Mrs. Hayden left the family home in Baldwin on Dec. 13, 1991, the suit said.
Mr. Reinhardt said the divorce cannot become final under Maryland law until the couple have been separated for at least one year.
