A Baltimore man convicted in the 2003 shooting deaths of two men at an Essex party was sentenced to life plus 20 years in prison Wednesday, prosecutors said. Jaron Grade, 36, was first convicted by a jury in December 2004 and sentenced to life plus 20 years, but the Maryland Court of Appeals later overturned the conviction. The panel ordered a new trial because it found that a Baltimore County judge violated Grade's rights by replacing a juror with an alternate during his trial with no input from the defense.

Seven years ago, James M. Schneider was told by Baltimore County public works officials that a large sewer pipe would have to be laid through his 1.4-acre property at the edge of the Back River. Once the job was completed, he was told, the land would be returned to its former condition. However, damage to the Essex property - and especially to its septic system - was such that the county ultimately condemned and bought the land, its seven-bedroom house and a smaller adjoining residence from the Schneiders and agreed in writing to help relocate the nine-member family to a comparable property.

Baltimore County police shot and wounded a woman this morning after coming under fire while serving a warrant at a house in Essex, authorities said. Plainclothes detectives from the Essex drug unit were looking for another woman wanted on a drug-related warrant at the residence in the 300 block of Magnolia Terrace, police spokesman Bill Toohey said. The officers entered a second-floor bedroom shortly before 8 a.m. and identified themselves as police, according to Toohey. A woman in the bedroom -- reportedly the mother of the suspect sought in the warrant -- allegedly fired a handgun once at the officers but missed, and police returned fire.

He was arrested Friday in the city, 11 days after Breaunna Floyd was stabbed and the family's Foxridge Lane townhouse was set on fire "in an attempt to cover the crime," according to charging documents.
