A 23-year-old woman was fatally stabbed yesterday afternoon in a liquor store in western Baltimore County near the city line, Baltimore County police said. The woman was in the Charing Cross Liquors store in the 5200 block of Baltimore National Pike around 4 p.m. when she was stabbed in the neck, Cpl. Ben Yohe said. The woman, whose name was not released, was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center where she was pronounced dead, Yohe said. Police are searching for a suspect in connection with the stabbing, but a description of that person has not been released. The motive is uncertain, but it appears the woman was not a store employee, Yohe said.

By popular vote, dolphin will be named Bayley


The voters have spoken and the nearly 4-month-old female dolphin at the National Aquarium in Baltimore finally has a name. It's Bayley. Late yesterday morning - with the assistance of an aquarium dolphin - Mayor Sheila Dixon did the honors and read the name aloud for the first time before an enthusiastic audience that included 300 area Girl Scouts. "More than 22,400 votes were cast by the public in text messages or online since the naming contest began on Nov. 11," said Jen Bloomer, media relations manager, at the Inner Harbor aquarium. According to Bloomer, Bayley was the choice of 31% of those who participated. Other choices for the baby calf who was born in July, were Calli, Charm, Hannah and Sassafras. Bayley, who is the National Aquarium's 10th successful dolphin birth since 1990, is the daughter of Chesapeake. Her father, Chinook, lives in a separate pool, while Bayley and her mother, and grandmother, Shiloh, live in a nursery pool. Also, sharing the nursery pool is 1-year old Foster, with whom she shares her toys, and his mother, Jade. Aquarium officials are enthusiastic that Bayley has already learned to swim on her own and started interacting with trainers, taking fresh fish from their hands.
