Teen held awaiting extradition to Va. on murder charge
A teen-ager charged with murder in the death of a scientist in suburban Washington was being held in Anne Arundel County yesterday without bail to await extradition to Virginia, authorities said.
Kyle Hulbert, who was arrested Tuesday in Millersville, waived extradition proceedings at his bail review hearing yesterday in District Court in Annapolis, authorities said.
He is to be moved within 15 days from the Anne Arundel County Detention Center to Loudoun County, Va., where he and two others are charged with first-degree murder in the stabbing death of biophysicist Robert M. Schwartz, authorities said. Schwartz's body was found Monday in his Leesburg, Va., home.
Hulbert, 18, was arrested Tuesday night outside a home in Millersville by Anne Arundel police serving a warrant from Loudoun County, authorities said. Police searched the Millersville house, in the 500 block of Brightview Drive, Wednesday afternoon, police said.
Although Anne Arundel District Court records list the Brightview Drive house as Hulbert's address, Loudoun County authorities said he is from Woodbridge, Va.
10 property owners apply for land preservation
Anne Arundel property owners who want to exchange their development rights for tax breaks or cash pay-outs recently filed applications with the county Department of Recreation and Parks that would affect more than 800 acres, county officials said yesterday.
Ten applications representing 863 acres were received recently by the county, which said yesterday that it has closed the application period for the fall. The applicants could be eligible for one or more county or state programs, including Rural Legacy.
About 9,000 acres has been permanently preserved in the county, including 3,650 acres preserved since County Executive Janet S. Owens took office, county officials said.
