Baltimore's spending panel is asked Wednesday to approve about $4,700 in back pay for a city police sergeant who was suspended without pay after allegedly pointing a gun at her 20-year-old son's head. The Board of Estimates will vote whether to pay back salary to Robin Blackmon while she was suspended for about a month in 2013, under an agreement with the Police Department and the union. The board also is asked to provide back pay of about $105,000 to Carlos M. Vila, a former police sergeant accused of secretly recording a conversation with a judge.

A Baltimore County jury found an Anne Arundel County man guilty Monday in the fatal stabbing of a woman he once dated. Jeffrey Shiflett, 35, was convicted of first-degree murder and related offenses in an attack in which he walked into Katie Hadel's Garrison apartment carrying a long knife and stabbed her nearly 30 times in front of her 2-year-old daughter. Hadel was under police protection at the time of her death after years of harassment and threats from Shiflett. As the verdict was read, Hadel's mother had tears in her eyes.

As their corporate partners express concern about the Ray Rice case, the Ravens have been reaching out — courting them anew — to try to ensure that dozens of long-held relationships and the millions in revenue they provide remain intact. In the strongest-worded statement from a Ravens sponsor yet, Southwest Airlines on Monday called the allegations of misconduct by NFL players "disturbing," adding that it was ready to "take prompt action," depending on the course of events. The club, which sent an open message to sponsors and fans Monday, wants to be certain its fabric of about 100 sponsors — both local and national firms — does not begin to unravel over questions surrounding its handling of the Rice situation.

Several U.S. senators have proposed stripping the NFL of its tax-exempt status — a warning analysts say the image-damaged league can't afford to ignore even if the threat proves hollow. Just as it did during Major League Baseball's steroid scandal nearly a decade ago, Congress is using its bully pulpit — and threatening legislation — to prod change on another of the nation's pastimes. Lawmakers introduced bills last week threatening to revoke the league's tax exemption for two different reasons.

As an unusual strain of virus continues its march across the country — showing up most recently in Pennsylvania and Virginia — health officials in Maryland are warning doctors to be on the lookout and advising parents to prepare. Enterovirus is common, with millions in the United States sickened every year, most with mild cases. But the relatively rare strain called EV-D68 can cause severe respiratory illness in children with asthma or other health conditions, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns.

A Baltimore judge this week ruled to allow city prosecutors to withhold identifying witness information from defendants in the sweeping case against alleged members of the Black Guerrilla Family gang. Judge Sylvester B. Cox on Tuesday granted a protective order, requested by the state's attorney's office, on any materials that could expose witnesses to harm or intimidation, after hearing a detective describe the fears witnesses had about cooperating with the investigation. Forty-eight suspects accused of being members of the BGF gang, which operated a violent, widespread drug trade in the city and corrupted the Baltimore City Detention Center, were indicted last November.

In an organization that relies heavily on the acceptable behavior of its employees to support its mission, there are generally accepted ways to deal with a crisis. First, if an employee is found to be in violation of the "acceptable behavior," deal with it immediately. The Ravens were told by the NFL that Ray Rice was suspended without pay for two games. Last Monday, after the video tape of Mr. Rice hitting his wife in an elevator became public, the Ravens terminated his contract.
