Mark S. Schwandtner drowned 22 years ago after being thrown from a railroad trestle into the Gunpowder River. But the case is far from being solved, even though three suspects were charged with the killing more than four years ago. A court hearing in Baltimore County yesterday moved the case no closer to a conclusion. Circuit Judge Christian M. Kahl gave lawyers two months to write legal arguments concerning the use at trial of a secretly taped confession by one of those accused in the killing, John S. Derry, 47, a Baltimore plumber.

Derry, N.H.We followed Robert Frost's advice and took the road less traveled -- state Route 28, to be exact -- and found ourselves at the doorstop of the poet's Derry, N.H., home.In fact, on our first try, we passed by the home, an unassuming white New England farmhouse with attached barn. While living here from 1900 to 1911, the 26-year-old teacher and aspiring poet hadn't fit in that well. He chose to follow his artistic whims and milked cows at noon and midnight, much to the dismay and wonderment of the locals -- and perhaps the animals as well.

As Glenda Schwandtner sees it, all that stands between justice and her brother's long-unsolved killing is a tiny number a Baltimore County police officer neglected to glue onto a tape recorder.The trial of John S. Derry, 44, on first-degree murder charges in the 1978 killing of 22-year-old Mark S. Schwandtner has been derailed because police left the identification number off a tape recorder used for an alleged confession. In a pretrial ruling, a judge threw out key evidence -- a secretly made tape of Derry -- because the number wasn't "affixed," as specified by state law.Now, a county prosecutor says that unless he can overturn a judge's ruling on the issue, Derry will go free.

DERRY, N.H. - The George W. Bush for President Show is now playing in a state near you, and it's a marvel of organization and affirmation. When the president flew into this southern New Hampshire Republican stronghold the other afternoon for what was billed as a town meeting, the state party and the Bush state campaign team assembled a crowd of nearly 2,000 faithful to greet him, packing a large gym. Town hall meetings are a storied tradition in New...

A Baltimore plumber will go on trial for murder more than five years after his arrest, and 23 years after the killing of Mark Schwandtner, a Towson construction worker who was beaten and thrown over a railroad trestle into the Gunpowder River. Baltimore County Circuit Judge Christian M. Kahl has ruled that a tape recording that allegedly contains a confession by John S. Derry - one of three suspects in Schwandtner's death - can be introduced as evidence. Prosecutors have said the tape is crucial to their case.
