Bolton Hill community leaders pleaded with Baltimore zoning officials Tuesday to prevent a fraternal lodge from holding late-night parties, saying that the raucous gatherings are destroying the character of the neighborhood. City Councilman William H. Cole IV, who represents the area, clutched a sheaf of fliers for Hiram Grand Lodge events that featured scantily clad women, promises of "top shelf liquor" and names such as "Love & Lust Pre-Valentine's Day event. " "We're asking you to end these activities because it's killing a great neighborhood," said Cole.

The attorney for a man accused of raping a woman and strangling her to death in her Bolton Hill home more than 20 years ago told a Baltimore jury during his opening statements that his client had sex with the victim but that the incident went no further. Kevin Gerald Robinson is charged with first-degree murder in the killing of Lisa Barselou, a 26-year-old whose body was found beaten and submerged in the bathtub of her home in November 1989. Nicholas Panteleakis, Robinson's lawyer, told the jury that Robinson and Barselou had consensual sex, and that his client's DNA, found on her body, could have been there up to five days before she was killed.
