Judge sets bail at $150,000 in fatal shooting of husband

An Anne Arundel Circuit Court judge set bail at $150,000 yesterday for a Pasadena woman charged with killing her husband.

Judge Eugene M. Lerner set bond for Deborah M. Young, 32, after a brief hearing. She had been ordered held without bond by District Judge Clayton Greene Jr. on March 22.

XTC If she posts bond, the judge said, she will be required to stay in her parents' home on Ridgely Road in Glen Burnie at all times. She also is prohibited from contacting any prosecution witnesses in the case.

The judge said Mrs. Young's lack of criminal record, testimony that she was a good mother to her three children, and the fact she and her parents were longtime county residents contributed to his decision.

Her attorney, Mitchell A. Greenberg, said Mrs. Young's parents would likely post bond by Tuesday.

Mrs. Young was charged with first-degree murder March 21, about 10 hours after she called police to report finding the body of her husband, Henry William Young, 42, in the couple's home in the first block of Margaret Ave.

She told investigators that when she had left the house, her husband was asleep in bed and that someone must have come $$ in the house and shot him while she was gone, charging documents said.

According to charging documents, Mrs. Young allegedly told witnesses she wanted to hire someone to kill her husband, and if she couldn't find anyone, she would have to do it herself. The documents said Mrs. Young needed money from her husband's insurance policy because she was behind in her house #i payments.

The charging documents said Mr. Young was asleep when he was shot several times.
