May 18, 1993|By Dennis O'Brien | Dennis O'Brien,Staff Writer

A 67-year-old Severna Park man, who spent three years in psychiatric facilities after he was found not criminally responsible for killing his wife, was indicted yesterday in the stabbing of his girlfriend.

Bernard Day of the 100 block of McKinsey Road was indicted by a county grand jury on a charge of assault with intent to murder.

Deputy State's Attorney Gerald K. Anders said that Mr. Day is accused of cutting his girlfriend, Doretha Gross, 30, with a knife numerous times in the stomach, neck, face and hands in the victim's home, in the first block of McKinsey Road in Severna Park.

Mr. Anders said the assault occurred April 11, after Ms. Gross told Mr. Day that she no longer wanted to see him.

Mr. Day was charged with killing his wife, Shirley Day, whose body was found in a neighbor's yard May 8, 1984.

The shooting was reported by the couple's son, who fled the family home on East Joyce Lane in Severna Park and ran to the nearby home of a state trooper.

Mr. Day was found not criminally responsible Feb. 2, 1987, and committed to state psychiatric facilities.

He was released in May 1990, Mr. Anders said.

The grand jury yesterday also indicted:

* Raymond L. Horsman, 28, of the 100 block of Governor's Court, Glen Burnie, in the breaking and entering of a home Sept. 16, 1987, in the 8100 block of Waterview Drive in Brooklyn Park.

* Terry J. Bradley, 18, of the 1100 block of Madison St., Annapolis, in the Feb. 21 armed robbery of an Annapolis resident.

* William D. Parker, 31, of the 100 block of Chester Ave., Annapolis, in a burglary. He is accused of breaking into the home of a 91-year-old Annapolis man in March and taking $47 in cash and a blank check, which police said he later tried to cash.
