PORT TOBACCO - Rose Hill, a mansion overlooking the Port Tobacco River in Charles County, is one of the finest examples of Georgian architecture in Southern Maryland. One of its most illustrious owners was Dr. Gustavus R. Brown, son of the man who built the mansion about 1730. Brown was a friend of George Washington, who visited Rose Hill several times, and was the physician who attended the former president at the time of his death. Today Rose Hill is owned by a couple who also had presidential connections.

Mundy Jr. said.Implicit in the charge of accessory after the fact to murder is the grand jury's finding of probable cause that Charles Stuart had murdered his pregnant wife and was responsible for the death of their unborn son after the couple attended a birthing class in Boston, Mundy said.

In 1989, when Charles Stuart claimed that his wife had been murdered by a black man with big lips, Boston police seemed to lose their heads. Officers fell upon black neighborhoods like gangbusters. They stopped and searched black men of all ages and descriptions -- those with big lips or otherwise. They conducted massive fishing expeditions through entire apartment complexes, looking for evidence.It wasn't until police had latched onto a big-lipped suspect and were in the process of sweating a confession out of him that Mr. Stuart's brother suffered an attack of conscience and pointed hTC police in the right direction -- to Charles Stuart himself.

BOSTON -- Three years after the murder of Carol DiMaiti Stuart, law enforcement officials and politicians are still feeling the repercussions.The Stuart case profoundly changed the law enforcement community in Boston, helping to bring the first black district attorney in the state's history into office and prompting unprecedented scrutiny of the Boston Police Department.It also demoralized some of the city's black leadership, which failed to win either of its major demands: an apology from Mayor Raymond Flynn for what many agreed was the mistreatment of a neighborhood and the creation by the state Legislature of a special commission to investigate the Stuart case.

The docudrama "Good Night, Sweet Wife: A Murder in Boston" is bad "docu" but good drama.CBS' dramatized version of the murder of Carol Stuart -- who was shot dead while on her way home with her husband from a childbirth class last October -- is filled with questionable facts and intimate events the filmmakers could only speculate about.The film itself carries this disclaimer: "The following story is based upon actual events as reconstructed from news reports and interviews with participants.

THE MINUTE I saw the police composite drawing of the black man who supposedly kidnapped Susan Smith's two boys flash across the television screen, I knew she was lying.That was several days after the Union, S.C., woman first reported that her car had been stolen with her kids -- strapped into their car seats -- still inside. When I saw the sketch of the alleged carjacker I said to myself sarcastically, "Yeah, right. A black man driving around in a stolen car with two little white boys in it would have been caught within 15 minutes.

"Goodnight Sweet Wife: A Murder in Boston" would have been a better movie if it had gone one way or the other, become an exploitative film that took us into the innards of yet another sicko American family, or a socially relevant commentary on the resonance of racism in American society.But, like so many products of executive producer Arnold Shapiro -- he does "Rescue 911," a show that exploits emergencies and personal tragedies but also gives useful lifesaving tips -- "Goodnight Sweet Wife" tries to walk down both sides of the street.

Tonight's TV is surprisingly and refreshingly busy, so let's get right to it.* "Victim of Love: The Shannon Mohr Story" (8-10 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- As a television docudrama inspired by stories previously presented on "reality shows," this "Unsolved Mysteries Movie" is much better than the Charles Stuart case from "Rescue 911," though not nearly so potent as the John List case from "America's Most Wanted." NBC.* "Nova: 'The Real Jurassic Park' " (9-10 p.m., WMPT, Channels 22 and 67, WETA, Channel 26)
