Mr. Berman's car struck another being driven by Cheri Catherine Royhholz, 30, of the 800 block of Streaker Road in Sykesville.

Woman stabbed, man shot in separate killings


BALTIMORE -- A 41-year-old woman and a man in his early 20s were killed yesterday in West Baltimore in separate incidents, police said.

The woman, Shirley Jingles of the 1200 block of Woodington Road, was stabbed at least 10 times in the upper body about 5:40 p.m. after she became involved in a dispute with a man in an apartment in the 700 block of Lennox St.

Police arrested Walter Rogers, 29, of the Lennox Street address and charged him with first-degree murder. He was being held in the Central District lockup pending an appearance before the court commissioner.

Homicide detectives said they had not been able to determine what relationship Mr. Rogers had to Ms. Jingles. Some narcotics paraphernalia were found in the apartment.

In the other homicide, Antonio Wheeler of the 1900 block of Edmondson Ave. was shot once in the left side of his chest and killed about 2:30 p.m. in the 1200 block of N. Carey St. There were no witnesses to the shooting, and there are no suspects, police said.

Off-track betting is sought in Cambridge


CAMBRIDGE -- A restaurant owner has asked City Council for permission to open an off-track betting facility.

Charlene Burton, owner of the Shoal Restaurant and Quality Inn on U.S. 50, presented a plan Monday for a facility that would allow people to watch and bet on live thoroughbred and harness races in Maryland via simulcast television.

The City Council would have to hold a public hearing on the proposal and, if the council approves it, change zoning laws, which do not cover off-track betting, City Attorney Richard Matthews said. The plan would also have to be approved by the Maryland Racing Commission.

Maryland tracks hope to open three to five off-track betting facilities next year, said Ted Snell, president and chief operating officer of Rosecroft Raceway and Delmarva Downs. He said Cambridge would be a good location.
