The judge described Robert Brazell Jr.'s death as a "totally senseless tragedy." Prosecutor Danielle Duclaux, in fact, couldn't even give the judge a reason for the fight that led to the teenager's killing. "I don't really understand why I'm standing here," Duclaux said, calling Brazell's death foolish and tragic. "There doesn't seem to be any good reason why this happened." Yesterday, Kevin Francis Klink, the Howard County teenager who had pleaded guilty to killing Brazell by hitting him on the head with a baseball bat last year, was sentenced to serve 13 years in prison by Howard County Circuit Judge Lenore R. Gelfman.
