Shorter sentence denied driver in crash that killed 4 A Delaware woman who in 2002 caused a car crash that killed four members of a northern Baltimore County family should remain in prison, the Delaware Board of Pardons has decided. Tishara A. Duffy had asked that the remainder of her nine-year prison term be commuted in the deaths of Wayne and Emily Abbott of Freeland and their sons, Douglas, 9, and Brian, 5. Duffy, who pleaded guilty in 2003 to first-degree assault and four counts of criminally negligent homicide, expressed remorse during a hearing Thursday for her role in the high-speed accident on Route 1 north of Dover, but the board voted not to recommend to Gov. Ruth Ann Minner that Duffy be set free.

Anthony Swiderski said he was sitting in his Canton rowhouse Aug. 10, 2007, watching television, when he heard a bang outside, followed by screeching tires. His car had been hit, a hole punctured in the side, and a good Samaritan had taken down the tag number of the vehicle that sped away. The first responding police officer ran the number and looked up at Swiderski with a half-smile. "I work with her. She's a cop," Swiderski, 56, recalls the officer saying. What happened during the next 17 months might be frustrating for anyone who's been on the receiving end of a hit-and-run.

There were no record shops in the neighborhood, and the nearest one was two bus rides away. The tiny, hopelessly conventional Welsh town where Aimee Anne Duffy grew up offered next to nothing in the way of soul education. But years later, the singer, who goes by just her last name, would find the earthy stylist within. A new world opened up when, at about age 19 or 20, she discovered the sounds of Aretha Franklin, Sam Cooke and other legends from soul's golden era. Such vintage sounds largely inspired Rockferry, her critically lauded, gold-selling debut that was released in March.
