May 24, 1994|By Andrea F. Siegel | Andrea F. Siegel,Sun Staff Writer

An Anne Arundel County grand jury yesterday indicted Kathryn E. McLane of Pasadena on a charge that she solicited an undercover county detective to kill her boyfriend's ex-wife.

Ms. McLane, 30, was arrested April 7 by Anne Arundel police at her home in the 8300 block of Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd. Police said she offered to pay the detective $5,000 and gave him half on March 31 in the parking lot of B J's Warehouse on Ritchie Highway in Pasadena.

She is free on bail.

The indictment was among 27 the grand jury returned yesterday.

Two women from Puerto Rico were indicted on a charge that they brought about 4 1/2 pounds of cocaine onto the mainland on an American Airlines flight to Baltimore-Washington International Airport. State's Attorney Frank R. Weathersbee said state police received a tip that two women would arrive at the airport carrying the illegal drugs.

Troopers arrested Lourdes Micagnos Martinez-Cortez, 23, of Rio Piedras, and Zulaika Pacheco Clemente, 19, of Trujilco Alto, on April 28 after they watched two women put packages of cocaine in their suitcases. Mr. Weathersbee said the women are suspected of strapping the drugs onto their bodies during the flight from San Juan.

They are being held without bail at the Anne Arundel County jail.

Brian William Mathews, 26, of the 300 block of Batharbor Road, also was indicted on a charge that he escaped from the county jail on April 16, where he was serving a one-year sentence for driving under the influence.

He was returning from his work-release job when his pager sounded and he ran off, Mr. Weathersbee said. He was apprehended April 25 and remains incarcerated.
