Westminster man accused of attack on half-brother

A Westminster man accused of clubbing his brother after an altercation in Gamber early Sunday morning remained in the Carroll County Detention Center yesterday afternoon on $6,000 bail, according to court records.

Maryland State Police said that Robert Lee Wiles allegedly struck his half-brother, Christopher Alan Bosley, also of Westminster, with an ax handle.

They said the fight occurred after Mr. Wiles and his girlfriend, Bonnie Miller, both of West George Street in Westminster, began arguing after leaving a dance at the Gamber fire hall in a vehicle about 12:30 a.m. Sunday morning.

After Mr. Wiles, 30, allegedly struck his 25-year-old girlfriend in the head, Ms. Miller dropped him off along Niner Road and returned to the fire hall. There she told Mr. Bosley of the alleged assault.

Police said Mr. Bosley, 23, of East Main Street in Westminster, took an ax handle from the trunk of his car and drove off in pursuit of his brother. Upon meeting him on Niner Road, police said, Mr. Bosley confronted Mr. Wiles with the ax handle. A fight ensued, and Mr. Wiles allegedly hit Mr. Bosley over the head.

Mr. Bosley, who was originally taken to Carroll County General Hospital, was listed yesterday in fair and stable condition at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

Zoning board approves church foyer addition

The Carroll County Board of Zoning Appeals has approved a request for a variance to allow the enlargement of White Rock United Church on White Rock Road in Eldersburg.

Church officials propose to build a new foyer to the 1868 church to offer members protection from the weather as well as safety features and architectural improvements. To add the foyer, however, the minimum re

quired front yard of 100 feet needs to be reduced to about 74 feet.

0$ The board approved the variance.
