Man indicted on murder charges in death of off-duty city detective

November 16, 2010|By Tricia Bishop, The Baltimore Sun

A Baltimore grand jury has indicted Sian James on murder charges, alleging that the 25-year-old killed an off-duty city police officer last month.

James, of the 2800 block of Dillon St., was scheduled to appear Tuesday in District Court for a preliminary hearing on the charges, but the indictment moves the case to Circuit Court, where James will be arraigned Dec. 10.

According to the city state's attorney's office, James was arguing Oct. 16 with Brian Stevenson on the 2800 block of Hudson Ave. and threw a chunk of concrete at the detective's head, killing him. James is being held without bail.
