The elderly woman who lives in the van in the shopping center on 41st Street in Hampden is Harriet Kahn. It says "Kahn" on the vanity plates of her van, but "Can" is how she pronounces her name because, she says, the softer "ah" (as in "Kaan") gives her name a pretentiousness she dislikes. Ms. Kahn is at most 5 feet tall; she says she'll be 80 in late March. She has small hands. Her hair is straight and gray; she keeps it wrapped with a scarf on cold days. She has sharp features and dark eyes with a certain savvy spark.

But a couple of blocks to the south, a neighborhood remains "traumatized," according to a community leader, after a 78-year-old woman was attacked outside her home Friday by a pit bull that ran across the street and bit her in the face. Athina Neofitou, a member of the church, remained in intensive care at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, said her son-in-law, Dennis Koulatsos.

If 71-year-old Irene Ebberts was murdered, it was a particularly heartless crime. The frail Catonsville woman weighed only 81 pounds. She lived alone with her heart problems and lung ailments, hooked up to an oxygen machine. She often kept to her bed, the spot where her brother found her body Oct. 19, 2001. But that "if" is in significant dispute, and it is a question jurors in Baltimore County's most recent death penalty case will decide. Prosecutors and police have their answer. They believe the frail woman was killed during a robbery.
