Lamarr Cornelius "Junebug" Harris, 41, who is already serving more than three life terms for Baltimore murder convictions, looked blankly ahead after Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge Paul A. Hackner handed down his ruling. Harris was one of two prisoners accused of fatally ambushing Cpl. David McGuinn on the catwalk of a prison tier tier in July 2006 - part of the violence that led state officials to close the prison.

Baltimore police have made an arrest in the killing of a 50-year-old man whose body was set on fire in April, and court documents appear to indicate an effort by the Police Department to be more deliberate in building cases. Eugene Emmett Bates, 36, was indicted last week and charged in the death of Elmore Rembert, who police say was killed during an argument as the pair used drugs in a vacant home in the Booth-Boyd neighborhood of Southwest Baltimore. Bates is accused of setting the house on fire and stealing Rembert's truck.

Mary Elaine Shereika was a dedicated runner, posting six to 10 miles a day no matter what. Her daughter remembers her coming home with ice in her hair from running in weather so cold that her perspiration froze. And she was a careful runner, always hitting the pavement during the daytime and in her own neighborhood. Shereika, 37, was attacked one morning in May 1988, just a mile from her house on Maytime Drive. A man dragged her into a rye field, then sexually assaulted, beat, stabbed and strangled her. Her killer, police say, tore through not only Shereika's family but also three others - leaving six children without mothers and one mother without her only daughter.

A teen-ager who prosecutors say admitted being involved in a chilling carjacking-slaying in the heart of Annapolis' historic district apparently will not be tried on murder charges because Maryland's highest court ruled yesterday that police improperly questioned him after he asked for a lawyer. In a calculated gamble, prosecutors appealed a judge's ruling barring them from using Leeander Jerome Blake's incriminating statements at trial. Under state law, prosecutors can appeal a judge's pretrial decisions on matters of evidence, but the case must be dismissed if they lose.
