East-side woman charged with murder in stabbing

A 32-year-old East Baltimore woman was charged with first-degree murder last night in a stabbing that became the city's second homicide of the year.

Police said they charged Yavonda S. Jones, of the 800 block of N. Chester St., after a 31-year-old woman was stabbed at Jones' house Friday night during an altercation. Police withheld the victim's name.

A police spokesman said the two women got into an argument that escalated into violence. The victim was cut in the stomach about 10 pm. and died later at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Police would not say what kind of weapon was used. In Maryland

Winter's first snowfall forecast for area today

The Baltimore area can expect its first snowfall today, thanks to a storm making its way from the Gulf Coast.

National Weather Service forecasters said they expect 1 to 3 inches of snow to accumulate in Baltimore by midnight. North and west of the city could get between 2 and 4 inches. The storm should begin by late morning as rain, forecasters said, then mix with or change to snow by afternoon.

Road crews will be put on notice to prepare for plowing and de-icing once the storm reaches Northern Virginia, a spokeswoman for the State Highway Administration said last night. In Baltimore County
