A seventh person was convicted Friday in Baltimore Circuit Court in what police and prosecutors say was a gang-related killing of a man who was beaten, wrapped in a blanket, stabbed and set on fire for failing to carry out a task. With his trial about to begin — in which several co-defendants were expected to testify — 25-year-old Anthony O. Williams entered an Alford plea, maintaining his innocence but acknowledging that prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him in the murder of Petro Taylor in December 2008.

The knock came shortly after 7 a.m. As the door was answered, five agents, pistols and batons in hand, entered the tiny brick rowhouse in Northeast Baltimore, plowed up the stairs to a bedroom and nabbed their man.Anthony William Burnes stumbled out of bed and pulled on jeans and a sweat shirt. Still groggy, he was handcuffed and driven away as relatives peered out a window.Because the armed men were bounty hunters, they needed no search warrant to enter Burnes' house. There was no need to read him his rights.

How many times can network television rewrap the same package and get one more sale out of an old idea?"Brimstone," a new Fox drama debuting tonight, might sound as if it's never been done before. It stars Peter Horton ("thirtysomething") as a bounty hunter from hell tracking down 113 souls that escaped back to Earth. The escaped souls are among the most vile hell has ever known. Stone is working for the devil, who is not at all happy about the big escape.But Stone is essentially playing Steve McQueen's role in "Wanted: Dead or Alive" on CBS from 1958 to 1961, with numerous variations on the bounty-hunter formula ever since.

The darkened apartment conveys all the warmth of a cave. No furniture, an empty refrigerator, a musty bathroom where the last shredded square of toilet paper clings to the roll.The 18-year-old hacker who lives here, in Irvine, Calif., says he doesn't need much, only a fictional world within the glow of his computer screen.He goes by the name Vengeance. Or Mr. Vengeance to strangers. He is a digital bounty hunter, a for-hire computer game player who punishes bullies on the Internet.He picked the name because it suits him better than the one his parents gave him. After all, who has ever heard of a vigilante named Tom Reginald?

When members of the Bloods gang step out of line, authorities say, the Bounty Hunters step in. Two Baltimore members of the group - an enforcement arm of the Bloods gang - were convicted last year of shooting a fellow member in the back of the head for "false-flagging," or misrepresenting his status in the gang. In 2006, a California Bloods member, who was sent across the country to Baltimore to separate real Bloods from wannabes, slashed Terrance Randolph, 19, with a boxcutter, smashed him with a sledgehammer, stabbed him with a samurai sword and set his body on fire.

The conflict between a woman's inner good girl and inner bad girl is a great movie subject. Unfortunately, it remains untapped in Domino, the "inspired-by-fact" story of a ferocious female bounty hunter who in the end displays a heart of tarnished gold. Domino (Keira Knightley), the daughter of a British movie star, Laurence Harvey (Room at the Top, The Manchurian Candidate), and a London model (played by Jacqueline Bisset), chucks pampering and privilege to grab fugitives and bail-jumpers off the mean streets and out of the crummy motels and trailer parks of the American West.

AND YET MORE tales from the world of bounty hunters. Wednesday's column told the story of one Harry Cokley's experience with bounty hunters, or bail recovery agents, who came to his house early one morning in August looking for his stepson, Marc Hill. Cokley said four men identified themselves as police, marched into his house after he opened the door and conducted a warrantless search without consent. Cokley alleged that the men produced a bag of marijuana in an attempt to intimidate his son's girlfriend into revealing Hill's whereabouts.

IT WAS half past one in the morning when Harry Cokley, desperately trying to get enough sleep so that his early rising wouldn't leave him groggy, heard the knock at his front door. Cokley, a 52-year-old truck driver who lives on Belvieu Avenue in Northwest Baltimore, works for the North Bay Distributing Co. His job requires getting up early and allows no time for late-night nonsense. But that's exactly what happened on this August evening. "Everybody was asleep," Cokley said of the members of his household, which include his wife, son, his son's girlfriend and her three children, and Cokley's daughter and her 4-month-old baby.

PUERTO VALLARTA, Mexico - Under any other circumstances, the residents of this beach town would have been just plain happy to have Andrew Luster off the streets. In his last five days of freedom, the heir to the Max Factor fortune and fugitive serial rapist was living in a motel that rents by the hour next to the local office of the Mexican version of the FBI. Nights would find him in the flashy clubs, consorting with lots of young women. But when a U.S. bounty hunter tackled Luster last month in front of a taco stand near the waterfront, the capture created its own brouhaha over vigilantism, national sovereignty and neighborly relations.

The second of two bounty hunters accused of bursting into an Ellicott City apartment, taking the occupants' money and holding them there for more than two hours pleaded guilty yesterday to five counts of false imprisonment after conceding that he made a "mistake" and stayed "too long." "It definitely was a mistake, and because of that, that's why I'm in the situation I'm in," Everett Ambush Chambers, 27, told Howard County Circuit Judge Diane O. Leasure. Noting prosecutors' belief that Chambers, of the 4400 block of Mary Ave., was "less culpable" than his co-defendant, Darnell Anthony Brown, 30, Leasure sentenced Chambers to 18 months in jail, suspending all but the month and a half he served while the case was pending, and placed him on two years' unsupervised probation.
