Police wanted criminal charges filed against a woman who they believed supplied alcohol to underage drinkers at her Ellicott City home the night last year that 17-year-old Steven Dankos was killed in a drunken-driving accident, according to prosecutors. A Howard County District Court commissioner refused, and Linda Stapf was given a citation instead. That procedural dispute led to prosecutors' agreeing Wednesday in Howard County District Court to Judge Mary C. Reese's putting Stapf's case on the inactive docket, where it will stay as long as Stapf attends a victim impact panel hosted by Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

A Westminster man accused of arson in fires at Cockey's Tavern in Westminster and a nearby garage March 8 was granted a bail reduction in Carroll County District Court in return for his agreeing to postpone a preliminary hearing scheduled yesterday. Bail for Clarence E. Mullinix, 29, of the 200 block of E. Main St. was lowered from a combined $150,000 to $60,000 in the two cases against him.
