Annapolis police are investigating three deaths -- one believed linked to this week's snowstorm, one a homicide during the storm and an earlier killing.

Alvin C. Bouchelle, 43, was stabbed to death yesterday in his home in the first block of Silopanna Road, and officers have charged his brother, David M. Bouchelle, 35, with the killing, said Lt. Robert Beans.

Police said they received a call at 12: 22 a.m., and officers found the victim with a single stab wound to the chest. He died about 3 1/2 hours later at Anne Arundel Medical Center.

The victim told police that his brother had stabbed him, and David Bouchelle told police he meant to kill his sibling, according to charging documents.

David Bouchelle is being held at the Anne Arundel County Detention Center without bond.

James Raymond Lane Sr., 75, of the 900 block of Bay Forest Court, was found dead by a neighbor at the side of his Eastport apartment building around 5 p.m. Tuesday, police said. He was wearing a coat and did not appear to have been robbed, police said. There were no signs of foul play, and an autopsy will be performed.

City police also are investigating the first homicide of the year, which occurred about 1: 16 a.m. Saturday. Police responding to a call for shots fired in the 1100 block of Madison St. found Michael Dwayne Hall, 24, of the first block of Barrensdale Drive in Severna Park with a gunshot wound to the head.

He was pronounced dead at Anne Arundel Medical Center. Police said they have no suspects and know of no motive.
