"What he did not do is murder the man," attorney Thomas J. Maronick, Jr., said. His client, Willie Mayes, 59, is accused of first-degree murder in the Sept. 2 death of Donald Robinson, 52, in Reservoir Hill. Baltimore police said Mayes, his 19-year-old daughter, Latiqwa Mayes, and two teenage strangers ganged up on Robinson after Latiqwa screamed out that Robinson had raped her. Latiqwa Mayes was also charged with murder as was Kwan Blackburn and Malik Antonio Hampton-Cummings, both 17.

A defense attorney for George Huguely V has filed a motion in a Charlottesville, Va., court requesting a retrial for the former University of Virginia lacrosse player convicted of second-degree murder and grand larceny in the 2010 beating death of his former girlfriend, Yeardley Love. The motion to set aside that verdict and schedule a new trial, and a memorandum in support of the motion, were filed Friday, which was the deadline. The motion questions many aspects of the February trial, including the selection and treatment of the jury - which recommended that Huguely serve a total of 26 years in prison for Love's death and the theft of her laptop - and the handling of an illness suffered by one of Huguely's attorneys during the trial.
