WASHINGTON — Justices won't hear death row appeal

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Supreme Court yesterday refused to hear the appeal of Maryland death row inmate Eugene Colvin-El, who was convicted of the 1980 murder of a Florida woman who was visiting Pikesville.

The court's action was taken without comment except for a dissenting statement by Justice Harry A. Blackmun, who opposes capital punishment under all circumstances.

Colvin-El was sentenced to death for killing Lena Buchman, 82, during a burglary at her daughter's Pikesville home.
