Four inmates have died at the Jennifer Road Detention Center this year, including two who took their own lives. A consultant with the National Institute of Corrections will visit the jail this month to see if mental health screening tests can be improved to prevent future suicides, said jail administrator Terry Kokolis. "It's tragic," Kokolis said.

When Baltimore County voters elected Circuit Judge Vicki Ballou-Watts to a 15-year term Tuesday, they answered an uncomfortable question that had been hovering around county elections for at least four years. They were willing, even eager, to elect an African-American to a countywide position. Before Ballou-Watts' victory, no black Baltimore County candidate had ever won in a countywide vote. And the election defeats of Judge Alexander Wright Jr. - a widely respected judge who is African-American - in 2000 and 2002 were in the minds of those watching this year's judicial race.

In three years as a Baltimore County District Court judge, Vicki Ballou-Watts has won over much of the county's legal community. "She listens, she takes charge and she's very fair," said Carey Deeley Jr., a Towson lawyer and a former president of the Baltimore County Bar Association. But when she is sworn in this month as the county's first black female Circuit Court judge, Ballou-Watts will be breaking a barrier in a jurisdiction where critics say too many judges have been white males.

Poolesville came to Dunbar last night determined to slow down the Poets. The Falcons spread the floor often in the first half, repeatedly found back-door layups and used patience to control the tempo and stay close. But then came the second half. The No. 2 Dunbar boys basketball team rattled visiting Poolesville with increased defensive pressure in the second half, and guards Maurice Barksdale and Herman Hayes helped the Poets break the game open quickly and cruise to an 84-52 victory in the Class 1A South regional final.

The West Baltimore man who told police his 2-month-old infant daughter was abducted by an unlicensed cab driver later confessed to homicide detectives that he "killed his daughter by accident," according to court documents. Kenneth Lee Jenkins, 20, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of A'shia Monique Jenkins. He is expected to have a bail review hearing today at Central Booking and Intake Center, where he is being held without bond. Jenkins initially told police -- and the child's mother, Lakeisha Ballou -- that A'shia was abducted by an unlicensed cab driver, or hack, who had pulled a gun on him and robbed him of $5 as Jenkins and his twin girls were on their way to meet Ballou.
