One day, maybe in a year, maybe two, Jimmy Escalante should step off a team bus outside the players' gate at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium in Salisbury. His catching gear stowed in a well-worn travel bag, he and a clutch of soon-to-be Delmarva Shorebirds would be home for the summer.But Escalante would also be home for real. Back on a peninsula he and his family made theirs nearly a decade ago. Back in a ballpark that was his workplace before he was ever a professional baseball player."It would be just an unbelievable thing, like coming home," he said.

The last of three men convicted in the beating and stoning death of a Honduran immigrant whose body was found in a Columbia creek bed last spring was sentenced yesterday to 18 years in prison. William D. Maldonado was a "significant participant" in the "bizarre and brutal" attack that left 33-year-old Antonio Ayala dead, Howard Circuit Judge James B. Dudley said before imposing the sentence. "The bottom line is that this was a senseless and brutal killing. It was murder," Dudley said.

The last of three men charged in the fatal beating of their roommate during a fight in a wooded area in Columbia last year pleaded guilty yesterday to second-degree murder. The man, William D. Maldonado, said the victim, Antonio Ayala, was the first to land a blow in a scuffle that involved all four roommates, prosecutors said. He admitted hitting Ayala with a piece of wood and with rocks before he and the other two men, cousins Marcos and Reyes Escalante, dragged Ayala to a rocky stream behind Flowerstock Row, prosecutors said.

The second of three men convicted of second-degree murder in the beating and stoning death of a 33-year-old Honduran immigrant in Columbia last spring was sentenced yesterday to 25 years in prison. Marcos Escalante, 26, not only hit Antonio Ayala in the head with a 4-by-4 piece of wood, he also helped drag him to a rocky stream bed where he threw rocks at him and left him to die, Howard Circuit Judge Lenore R. Gelfman said before imposing sentence. A landscaper discovered Ayala's body on May 20, 2002, a few days after the beating in woods behind Flowerstock Row. "The defendant was not simply a passive participant but, rather, took an active and, in fact, the most brutal role in this unfortunate event," Gelfman said.

A 24-year-old Elkridge man accused of robbing an armored car at gunpoint in January 2001 and stealing $368,000 was indicted in the case yesterday, more than a year after initial charges against him were dropped for a lack of evidence. A Howard County grand jury returned a four-count indictment against Eric Allen Miller of the 5900 block of Setter Drive with charges of armed robbery and felony assault. Prosecutors said yesterday that new information led investigators to recharge Miller.

DENTON -- A Guatemalan teen-ager who was ruled incompetent to stand trial in the death of her newborn baby has been handed over to federal immigration authorities, who began deportation proceedings yesterday. Jailed for nearly a year, Erminia Escalante Berdugo, 18, is eligible for bail -- set at $10,000 by the Immigration and Naturalization Service -- and could be released to the custody of a Queen Anne's County couple who have volunteered to act as her guardians. Supporters who have rallied to defend Berdugo say she is the victim of a legal system she cannot understand.
