Police identify woman's body found in East Baltimore

City police have identified the woman found dead in East Baltimore this week, not far from where police have been searching for suspects in a string of rapes. The body of Lykeisha Freeman, 35, was found Tuesday in the rear of the 900 block of E. Eager St., in a grassy area behind a convenience store. The cause of death was listed as blunt-force trauma. Freeman had a history of prostitution charges, and her death came amid a string of attacks that took place at bus stops and inside homes in East Baltimore, police said.

Sex offender charged after DNA is linked to 1993 rape

A former Annapolis man, a convicted sex offender who is serving a 15-year sentence for burglary, has been charged with first-degree rape and related counts after his DNA was linked to a 1993 sexual assault in Annapolis, officials said. An Anne Arundel County judge unsealed the indictment of James Albert Henson, 47, this week. Henson is charged in the rape of a 21-year-old woman who was attacked Oct. 21, 1993, in her apartment in the 200 block of Victor Parkway.
