An 18-year-old Rockville man was one of four college students killed in a plane crash in Ohio Monday night, police said. Abraham Pishevar, a Georgetown Preparatory School graduate and freshman at Case Western Reserve University, died in the crash at about 10 p.m., shortly after takeoff at Cuyahoga County Regional Airport, according to the Ohio Highway Patrol. The other three men aboard the small Cessna aircraft were also Case Western students - William Felten, 20, of Saginaw, Mich.; Lucas Marcelli, 20, of Massillon, Ohio; and John Hill, 18, of St. Simons, Ga., the university said.

Prosecutors had no eyewitness tying Eric Jordan to a pair of armed robberies at Baltimore fast-food restaurants. But they didn't need one to win a conviction — radio waves darting from his cellphone had silently betrayed him. A few paragraphs tapped out from a prosecutor's office and the flick of a judge's pen were all investigators needed to get the phone records. That turned Jordan's Sanyo phone into a weapon against him, calling into question his assertion that he hadn't acted as a getaway driver for Aaron Graham.

Under increasing legal and political pressure, the Obama administration issued a new rule Friday designed to ensure that female employees have access to birth control while accommodating religious employers that object to covering it through their health insurance plans. But the latest attempt at a compromise — which comes in response to recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions — was quickly criticized by religious groups, including the Catonsville-based Little Sisters of the Poor, for not fully addressing their concerns.

Baltimore Immigration Court, facing an increase in the number of cases involving immigrant children who crossed the border illegally, is expediting reviews to more quickly decide whether the children should be deported, according to attorneys with clients before the court. The so-called "rocket docket," created in response to a directive last month from the Obama administration to fast-track the cases, has meant the children receive initial hearings within 21 days and in some cases are given a matter of weeks, instead of months, to find an attorney.

Some foster children were placed in the care of relatives with a history of alleged abuse or neglect because Maryland's social services agency did not properly monitor local agencies, according to a new audit. State auditors found that 16 children, ranging in age from 2 months to nearly 5 years old, were put in the care of relatives despite "credible evidence of abuse or neglect" by them before or during the placements. The Office of Legislative Audits, which released the report this week, reviewed records from July 2010 to January 2013.

Editor's note: This article has been updated from an earlier version Criminal trials typically end once the jury returns its verdict. The attorneys move on to their next cases, unless appeal is pursued, and the debate ends. Unfortunately, that has not been the case after the recent trial of State v. Joseph Walker in Anne Arundel County. An Anne Arundel County grand jury indicted the defendant in this case for murder and other offenses after a Maryland State Police investigation revealed strong evidence that the defendant shot and killed an unarmed man during a road rage incident.

A 19-year-old man has been charged in a Northwest Baltimore double shooting that injured two men in late July, Baltimore police say. Michael Pickett, 19, of 603 E 38th St., faces attempted murder, assault and weapons charges after Baltimore police say he shot two men sitting in a 2000 Saturn on July 30 in the 5000 block of Gwynn Oak Ave. in Howard Park. Police say a 22-year-old man was shot in the chest and lower back while a 27-year-old man was shot in the right arm. Witnesses identified Pickett as a person of interest in the shooting and he was arrested after a photo lineup, detectives wrote in charging documents.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- After an evening spent dodging and sprinting past potential Dallas Cowboys tacklers, Ravens wide receiver Deonte Thompson wasn't about to run and hide from what was blatantly obvious. Having seemingly lost ground in the wide receiver competition in recent weeks, Thompson needed a performance like this in the worst way.    “I'm in a tough competition right now, so everything counts, and it was big for me personally,” Thompson said following the Ravens' 37-30 victory over the Dallas Cowboys.

Seeing news reports about the recent shooting and its aftermath in Ferguson, Mo., makes me wonder whether all police officers should be armed with new weapon, the uniform-mounted video camera ( "'Another senseless death,'" Aug. 13). Arming officers with cameras and recording devices would document exactly what takes place in any police situation and action. Officers would be required to activate the device before each action, even in minor situations such as issuing traffic citations.

A lawyer for the Orioles-controlled Mid-Atlantic Sports Network told a judge the network's cash reserves would be nearly eliminated and its operating margin dangerously thin if a June 30 decision by a league committee is allowed to stand, according to court documents. Documents — including affidavits, memorandums, transcripts and exhibits — describe from MASN's perspective a worst-case scenario in the television rights fee case pending before a New York judge. MASN has asked the judge to extend a temporary restraining order issued Aug. 7 blocking the panel's decision from being enforced.
