Responding to a 911 call reporting a person not breathing and lying in an alley, city police officers found a 27-year-old man dead of stab wounds yesterday morning in East Baltimore.

The identity of the victim, whose body was found shortly after 7 a.m. in the 500 block of N. Decker Ave., was withheld pending notification of relatives, police said.

Police also announced arrests of three men in connection with two separate homicides that occurred Tuesday - one of them the apparent result of a domestic dispute.

Ronald McClary, 59, was charged with first-degree murder in the shooting of his wife, Eartha McClary, 44, during a domestic incident in or near their home in the 2500 block of W. Pratt St. about 6 p.m. Tuesday, police said. The woman, who was shot in the upper body and found lying outside the house, died a short time later at Maryland Shock Trauma Center, police said. The husband was being held last night at Central Booking and Intake Center.

Two men were arrested and charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in the shooting about 6 a.m. Tuesday of Eddie Scott of the 2400 block of Loyola Northway.

Northwestern District officers responding to a report of a man shot in the 5300 block of Cuthbert Ave. found Scott lying in the street, bleeding. Scott, 30, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Arrested a short time later and charged in Scott's death were Craig Fogarty, 33, of the 5700 block of Nelson Ave. and Derrol Gordon, 23, of the 2000 block of Winford Road. They also were being held at Central Booking.
