It took Chris Brown months to return to work after the death of her 17-year-old son. She has left her old home and is still hesitant to look at pictures of the teen. On Monday, a little more than a year after Christopher Brown died, the Baltimore County police officer accused of killing him is set to be tried for manslaughter. And Chris Brown will have to relive her loss through agonizing courtroom testimony. "Now I am faced with all those feelings again," said Brown, who plans to watch as prosecutors try to convict Officer James D. Laboard.

We are all Boston. It's something we said on Monday, when we were at a loss for words to describe our shared sorrow and horror at the marathon bombings, when we knew no other way to express our solidarity with a city reeling from terrible loss. Four days later, it is something we said as we cheered along with all those gathered on a quiet street in Watertown as police captured the second suspect in the bombings alive, put him in a squad car and drove away. We say it now out of pride for a city that responded to tragedy in a way we all hope we would and brought a terrifying week to a close with a professionalism and dignity that represents the best in us all. We now know just enough details about the two men believed to be responsible for the bombings to invite speculation about what could have led them to commit such a terrible act. The older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was a promising amateur boxer who experienced troubles in this country.

Baltimore County prosecutors will not be allowed to use information provided by James D. Laboard's lawyer on the night that the off-duty police officer allegedly killed a Randallstown teenager, a judge ruled Friday. During a criminal motions hearing, Circuit Judge Jan Marshall Alexander ruled that the lawyer's decision to talk to detectives violated attorney-client confidentiality. Prosecutors said the ruling would have little effect on the case. Laboard, a Baltimore County police officer, is charged with two counts of manslaughter in the death of 17-year-old Christopher Brown.

Baltimore Police found a man dead of an apparent homicide on Friday morning in an industrial, half-vacant section of the Carrollton Ridge neighborhood. The man was found at 6:07 a.m. in a field behind a string of abandoned railroad cars next to some tracks just off the 600 block of S. Fulton Ave. Bits of crime scene tape remained attached to a rusted railroad car that had marked off the crime scene, where, at noon, blood could be seen still pooled on the ground. No description of the victim's age, injuries or manner of death was available.

Dexter and the Dark Passenger. They've been together for as long as we've known our charming serial killer, but in swoops Hannah, a girl he barely knows, and out goes the thinking that has balanced his entire life. It all started when the arsonist struck again; fifth time's the charm right? Dexter gets to thinking that the arson inspector looks a little fishier than he has a right to be. While he doesn't seem to share Dexter's cold eyes, he must have a strong stomach to smell the burnt bodies.

Maybe Carrie's family is right about this job being too stressful. Beyond the psychological challenges of subterfuge and shifting loyalties, this week's episode of "Homeland" zeroes in on the broader, more tangible threat of violence. Episode 6 of the show's second season yielded the first casualties of the year, as an investigation into Abu Nazir's U.S. network leaves a team of CIA agents with their backs to the wall in a shocking, bloody scene. This week's action also offered some payoff for awkward story lines and slow-moving action in some of the show's sub-plots and provided some new complexity in the relationship between Carrie and Brody.
