Lanham men charged in stabbing death at Inner Harbor

February 07, 1999|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Two Prince George's County men have been arrested and charged with fatally stabbing a Northwest Baltimore man last summer at the Inner Harbor.

Keith and Kevin Scott, 23-year-old twins from Lanham, were arrested Tuesday night by the FBI fugitive task force, said Baltimore homicide Detective Robert L. Patton.

The brothers were charged in the death of Martrelle Creighton, 20, who was stabbed in the neck about 2 a.m. July 20 after an argument between two groups of people in front of the Light Street Pavilion at Harborplace.

"We initially thought this was going to be an open case forever," Patton said. "The Inner Harbor is not a neighborhood, just a place where everyone comes in to visit."

Witnesses were able to provide detailed descriptions of the suspects, which enabled a police artist to make a good composite sketch.

A Laurel police officer, Mike Pianpiano, saw the sketch, thought he recognized the two men and called Baltimore police.

"He said he knew them from Laurel," Patton said. The men were arrested in Laurel.

The Scott brothers, who were charged with first-degree murder, were being held at the Central Booking and Intake Facility without bail.

Police are seeking two more suspects in the stabbing, Patton said.
