Pioneer City man found on roadside dies of severe burns

A Pioneer City man died of severe burns yesterday at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, where he was taken after pedestrians found him lying on the roadside, police said.

Everette R. West, 50, was discovered crawling in the grass in the 2700 block of Annapolis Road about 6 p.m. Sunday by three pedestrians walking to a liquor store. They called police, who took West to the hospital. He was pronounced dead late yesterday morning from severe burns to his upper and lower body.

Anne Arundel Police Lt. Joseph Jordan said yesterday that West, who lived in the 8300 block of Pioneer Drive, told officers he had been assaulted but was unable to provide details.

"Unfortunately, because of the amount of pain he was in, he was not coherent," said Jordan, who added that West's death has been ruled "suspicious."

Police are asking anyone with information to call 410-222-3455.

Ex-judge gets 5 1/2 years for violation of parole

Former state Administrative Law Judge Marvin Lee Teal was sentenced yesterday to 5 1/2 years in prison for violating probation on his 1997 Anne Arundel County child abuse conviction.

In 1997, Teal received a seven-year sentence for molesting an 11-year-old boy, with 5 1/2 years of that suspended. But Circuit Judge Nancy Davis-Loomis imposed the rest of that sentence yesterday because of Teal's indictment in Baltimore this year on federal charges of possession and attempting to possess child pornography.

An administrative law judge from 1990 until his resignation in 1995, Teal was also convicted in 1995 in Howard County of molesting two children - one a foster son - and pleaded guilty to a third-degree sex offense in 1998 in Baltimore.
