Convicted killer gets another year in prison


Richard Janey, who is appealing an Anne Arundel County Circuit Court murder conviction and 30-year prison sentence, has received another year in prison.

Janey pleaded guilty recently to assault on a county jail guard Oct. 15, 1997. Throwing batteries, he hit the officer in the head so hard the guard blacked out briefly, according to charging documents. Janey's jail misconduct records, inadmissible at his April sentencing for second-degree murder, were an inch thick.

Janey, 34, of the 100 block of Obery Court in Annapolis was convicted slaying of Susan McAteer, 29, of Annapolis, who was stabbed 58 times in December 1994. Janey and a friend drove around while the victim bled to death, then dumped the body and burned the car.
