Murder charges were dropped Friday against a Severn man accused of killing a driver at a traffic light in August, according to the Anne Arundel County state's attorney's office. James William King Jr. was charged with first-degree murder and indicted in the Aug. 6 slaying of 40-year-old Calvin Chi-Man Yeung of Severn. Yeung was stopped at a red light when a man approached the driver's side of his car and shot him twice in the head, police said. New evidence, including phone records and enhanced video footage, substantiated an alibi for King, according to a statement from the state's attorneys office.

"Want to see Pinocchio!"They saw the movie, but that night, July 26, would be father and daughter's last together.

With investigators grilling him about his alleged role in the fatal shooting of a 23-year-old computer student two years ago, Tavon Donya Sands offered up an alibi - and a denial. He was with his girlfriend, getting drunk, all night, Sands told the lead detective on the case. And although he heard a white Cadillac was seen near the scene of the crime, he has never had such a car, Sands told investigators during a profanity-laced taped interview. "I didn't [expletive] shoot nobody, man. And I know that's what you getting at, man," he said before ending the interview.

The Washington Bullets had a convenient alibi for blowing a 14-point halftime lead and losing to the Philadelphia 76ers, 105-101, at the Baltimore Arena on Saturday night.As has become the norm whenever the Bullets play here, the Arena scoreboard and timing devices malfunctioned at least a ++ half-dozen times, interrupting the flow of the game, which took 2 hours, 30 minutes to complete."I think all the interruptions threw both teams out of sync and ruined our timing," said Bullets center Pervis Ellison, who scored 28 points and grabbed 16 rebounds.

Attorneys for the teenager accused of shooting a 5-year-old girl in Southwest Baltimore plan to call the vendor for the state juvenile services' GPS ankle-monitoring system as a defense witness to show that the device provides an alibi. Defense attorneys also contend that at least three witnesses interviewed by police, including a 17-year-old also shot in the incident, identified a different person as the shooter but that police ignored their statements. Police have said that Lamont Davis, who had been arrested 15 times as a juvenile, was wearing a GPS ankle bracelet that police cut off when he was arrested in the shooting about 4 p.m. July 2. The case has raised questions about the effectiveness of the monitoring technology, a top priority of Gov. Martin O'Malley.

At yesterday's Alibi Breakfast, there was much of the latter but remarkably little of the former. Usually, this pre-Preakness event is an opportunity for big talk. Owners and trainers would make boastful predictions about how their horses would do in the race - or perhaps start dropping excuses should they perform badly - and politicians would use the event to promote the need to support the grand tradition of thoroughbred racing. Translation: Slots. Slots! SLOTS. But this year, with Kentucky Derby winner Big Brown far and away the favorite in Saturday's Preakness, most of the breakfast-goers speaking on behalf of the other horses in the race were not so much bragging as nearly conceding.

Voters in Maryland's 1st Congressional District have a habit of sending people to Congress with a fondness for the Chesapeake Bay, from former Interior Secretary Rogers C.B. Morton to Wayne T. Gilchrest. The latest Republican vying for that seat, Andy Harris, has an abysmal score on a leading environmental "report card," which he claims is unfair and political. Specifically, the Baltimore County state senator says the Maryland League of Conservation Voters, the nonprofit group that each year rates environmental voting records in Annapolis, has included legislation allowing voters to cast their ballots ahead of Election Day. Mr. Harris has a point.

Articles published Monday and Tuesday about a car accident that claimed the life of a Towson University freshman might have created confusion about when he died. Kevin Ryan was declared dead Saturday, according to a Sinai Hospital spokeswoman, but doctors kept him on life support until Sunday so his organs could be donated. Also, his age was incorrectly reported in one of the articles. He was 18. The Sun regrets the errors.

For the second time in a week, Anne Arundel County prosecutors have thrown out a murder case, this time because one of two men accused in a fatal Annapolis shooting could not have been at the scene. Prosecutors dismissed first-degree-murder charges yesterday against Keith Brown, 27, and Ryan B. Wheeler, 26, both of Annapolis after Wheeler's attorney, F. Spencer Gordon, produced several witnesses who corroborated his client's alibi, that he was drinking with friends in downtown Annapolis bars on Oct. 12, 2006, the night that Jamore Van Johnson, 39, was killed.

If you're waiting for this year's Preakness prediction, you're going to be waiting a long time. Lest anyone forget, it was almost exactly one year ago today that I declared Barbaro a "mortal lock" to win the Triple Crown and I've been dealing with that guilt ever since. I don't really believe in jinxes, but I turned off last Sunday's Orioles game in the top of the ninth inning because I was sure that the bullpen could hold a five-run lead at Fenway Park. If memory serves, I also picked the Ravens to beat the Colts in the playoffs and Sanjaya to win American Idol.

I stepped onto the treadmill with a cocktail of success swimming inside of me. Who knew exactly what type of historic athletic achievement was going to take place once this machine started whirring? With all the training I'd done over the course of the previous hour, I knew something memorable was about to happen. As a responsible journalist, one who fights off cynicism with a baseball bat, it was my duty to finally give athletes the benefit of the doubt. Maybe they really did break baseball's home run records cleanly.
