A Morgan State University student who was partially blinded with a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire alleges in a recently filed lawsuit that the school ignored warning signs of Alexander Kinyua's potential for violence. Joshua Ceasar of New Jersey was struck by Kinyua, who is accused of killing a family friend before eating some of his body parts in Harford County. Kinyua pleaded guilty but not criminally responsible in December in the attack on Ceasar. "There were numerous warning signs that Kinyua was a danger to the community, and Morgan State failed to act to protect anyone on campus," said Ceasar's attorney, Steven D. Silverman.

A Glen Burnie teen was found responsible yesterday in the death of a 49-year-old man who died after being struck on the head with an aluminum baseball bat. Christian J. Schellenschlager Jr., 16, was found the juvenile court's equivalent of guilty of voluntary manslaughter. He avoided a similar finding on more serious charges, including second-degree murder, in the death of Brian Michael Myers in April. Prosecutors had attempted to have him tried as an adult. The teenager did not admit responsibility, but he agreed to a statement of facts read yesterday morning by prosecutors in the Anne Arundel County courtroom of Circuit Judge J. Michael Wachs.
