Woman, 50, charged in stabbing death

CRIME WATCH

March 16, 2007

A 49-year-old man died late Wednesday after he was stabbed inside a home in Southwest Baltimore, and a woman was arrested in the killing, city police said yesterday.

About 7:45 p.m. Wednesday, police officers found Michael Stuckey on his back on the living room floor of a home in the 100 block of Diener Place, police said. Stuckey, of the 700 block of N. Augusta Ave., died about 11:45 p.m. at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

Police said that detectives arrested Robin A. Weaver, 50, of the 6000 block of Radecke Ave. She has been charged with first-degree murder and possession of a deadly weapon.

In November, Weaver was indicted in Baltimore County on charges of assault, carrying a concealed deadly weapon and making a false statement to police. She had been in jail for several months until she posted bail in January, court records show.

Police identified another homicide victim yesterday who died after being shot in Northeast Baltimore's Lauraville neighborhood Tuesday evening. A gunman in the 2500 block of List Ave. approached a car carrying Antwan D. Askins, 27, and two other men, and fired at them. Askins died, and another occupant was wounded, police said.

In November 2005, Askins pleaded guilty to drug distribution and was given a seven-year sentence. He served about three days when the remainder was suspended by a city Circuit Court judge, electronic court records show. Askins was on probation for that conviction at the time of his death.

Askins had also been convicted of second-degree assault and drug dealing. According to court records, one of his most recent addresses was an apartment in the 7700 block of Greenview Terrace in Towson.

Police have arrested a second suspect in the Tuesday killing of Steven Washington, 17, who was shot in the 1600 block of Cliftview Ave. in East Baltimore. Maurice Wilkerson, 17, of the 2700 block of The Alameda, was arrested Wednesday and charged as an adult with first-degree murder, police said.

Man convicted in double killing

Almost four years after two men were fatally shot in a Fells Point apartment, Anthony Jerome Miller, 31, was convicted yesterday of two counts of second-degree murder.

Miller, of the 4500 block of Runnymeade Road in Owings Mills, was found guilty by a jury in the shooting deaths of Jason M. Convertino, 31, and Sean M. Wisniewski, 22. The two men, both promoters who had worked for Redwood Trust nightclub in downtown Baltimore, were killed about 2:30 a.m. April 16, 2003, in an apartment in the 1900 block of Gough St.

Prosecutors said their evidence against Miller included a laptop of Convertino's that Miller pawned a month after the killings and DNA matching Miller's that was found inside a latex glove found at the crime scene.

Miller is scheduled to be sentenced June 8. He could be given up to 60 years in prison.
