City man accused in 2 fatal carjackings leads police to body

A man charged in two fatal carjackings in Baltimore's Clifton Park in August led police to the body of a third man during the weekend, a homicide squad supervisor said yesterday.

Javes Hall, 20, of the 1500 block of E. Chase St. was being held at Central Booking and Intake Center in the carjack killing of Anthony Rogers, 31, of the 1300 block of Kenton Ave. in Baltimore County. Rogers' body was found in the park Aug. 28. Hall was taken to police headquarters Saturday and questioned about the similar death Aug. 23 of Khjali Samateh, 40, of the 1500 block of Eastern Ave.

Homicide Lt. Errol Etting said Hall was charged in Samateh's killing, then told police about stealing another man's car and dumping a body in a wooded area in Northeast Baltimore.

Early Saturday evening, Hall directed police to the 4600 block of Denview Way, and the decomposed body of a man who had been shot. Police withheld the victim's name pending notification of relatives.
