A 12-week-old baby boy found dead Thursday in his Northwest Baltimore home may have died from sudden infant death syndrome, a state's medical examiner said yesterday.

Dr. David Fowler, who performed the autopsy yesterday, said Davon Mosley's death does not appear to be a homicide. "There was no evidence of any injuries," he said. David was found unconscious by his mother at their Belle Avenue home.

Fowler said he is awaiting lab test results due in two weeks.

Ex-police officer receives six-month term in gun sales

A federal judge sentenced a former Baltimore County police officer to six months in prison yesterday for selling guns without a license.

Timothy Thomas Mitchem, 34, a nine-year veteran, will remain free pending an appeal to be heard in about 18 months, said Mitchem's attorney, Michael P. May. Mitchem said he bought and sold guns as a hobby, but federal agents claimed his dealings amounted to illegal gun sales.

Between 1992 and 1995, prosecutors said Mitchem bought 225 firearms and sold 175 of them. U.S. District Judge William M. Nickerson, who imposed yesterday's sentence, also sentenced Mitchem to six months of home detention and two years of supervised probation.
