The 23-year-old Baltimore man convicted of killing an off-duty city detective in a robbery attempt outside his girlfriend's home was sentenced yesterday to life in prison without parole. In issuing the sentence for the murder of Detective Troy Lamont Chesley Sr., Baltimore Circuit Judge Timothy Doory described Brandon Grimes as a "cruel and cowardly criminal" whom the citizens of Baltimore had "every reason to fear" for "every day of his adult life." Chesley's mother, Joyce, began sobbing on the stand, and a detective stepped in to finish reading her written remarks.

A city police officer allegedly caught on videotape swinging at or hitting a spectator during the Preakness on Saturday lost his police powers after an internal hearing yesterday and was assigned to administrative duties. Police officials said Officer Troy Chesley, 29, an eight-year veteran, will remain on administrative duty pending the outcome of an internal investigation. The videotape shows Chesley and other officers trying to control a melee involving between 10 and 15 people in the infield of Pimlico Race Course, and the fight appears to be getting out of hand when Chesley is seen swinging at a spectator with something in his hand or with both hands, police officials said.

Some of the images of Baltimore Detective Troy L. Chesley Sr. that flashed on screens above the pulpit made people laugh. In one, he is bare-chested, belly out and wearing white swim trunks. Another shows him as a boy, with a silly grin and eyes as big as grapes. Others shown at his funeral yesterday revealed his serious side. Posing for a portrait as a young police officer, he looked straight into the camera with a stony expression. Later, he stood with chin up, leaning against a patrol car with other members of the Western District.

He joined the Baltimore police force, where he was commended for saving a woman from a burning house and later hand-picked to join an undercover narcotics unit. He had children, including two boys. Yesterday, Chesley was shot to death in what police said was a botched robbery outside his girlfriend's home in Northwest Baltimore.

By returning fire and wounding his assailant in the leg, Detective Troy Lamont Chesley Sr. "marked" Brandon Grimes as his killer, prosecutor Kevin Wiggins told a Baltimore jury yesterday during closing arguments in the first-degree murder trial. "Troy Chesley shot the person who tried to kill him," Wiggins said. The prosecutor walked to the witness box, sat down in it and, taking on Chesley's persona, spoke into the microphone: "Brandon Grimes murdered me." On the final day of the two-week trial, Grimes took the witness stand in his defense, saying that he had been at his girlfriend's house on the night of the shooting, went to meet a friend, Kelly Carter, in a patch of woods nearby, and then suddenly "shots rang out."

Donta Robinson and Jamal Carter had just parked their car in West Forest Park when a man with a gun came up and yelled, "Get down." The gunman took Robinson's wallet and keys, and drove away with his 2005 Mercury. Robinson rushed to a neighbor's house and called the police. Officers found Robinson's car a few blocks away, but they didn't find a suspect. They also didn't take a report, dismissing the complaint as unfounded. That was Jan. 5. Four days later, police believe, the same gunman killed Officer Troy Chesley in a shootout that took place blocks away from the carjacking.

The investigation into who killed Detective Troy Chesley moved quickly. Within hours of his death, police found a suspect, witnesses and the weapon used in the killing - a Sig Sauer handgun customized with a laser targeting system. The serial number: U540876. At a news conference held the day Chesley died, police commanders angrily complained that the suspect, Brandon Grimes, had been arrested 17 times - twice for handgun possession - yet was still on the street. But police later learned some disturbing news: The gun used to kill Chesley in January had slipped through their hands - twice.

Researchers probing the roots of autism say they've found fresh evidence that the disorder, like cancer, could be a tough one to conquer. That's because it's really a constellation of related diseases - with a wide range of genetic underpinnings. In a study released today, scientists say that children who are the sole cases of autism in their families are five times more likely to have a particular genetic mutation than autistic youngsters in families in which the disorder has shown up repeatedly.
