Dear Mr. Azrael, I inherited my father's house when he passed away. Later, my husband died and I re-did my will. The house was put in my daughter's name without my realizing it. My daughter moved into the house and I thought that was that. In 1998, my daughter passed away without leaving a will. I thought she had paid all the taxes and water bills. Wrong! When I tried to sell the house, I was told on the day of settlement that I did not own the house and that I could not sell it. It had been sold at a tax sale.

A 37-year-old Florida man who met a Cockeysville woman through the Internet was found guilty Friday of stabbing her to death on Thanksgiving Day 2008, less than two months after moving in with her. Rex N. Wesley's first-degree murder conviction came after a three-day trial in Baltimore County Circuit Court and less than an hourlong deliberation by a jury. Prosecutor Stephen R. Roscher said Wesley was discovered standing over the body of Donna Jean Brown, 31, in the kitchen of her father's house in Randallstown, her body and head slashed and pierced by "scores" of wounds.

A man suspected of killing his father yesterday surrendered to police officers who had surrounded the older man's home in Lutherville for several hours. The father, John Raymond Kauffman, 66, was found dead in the garage of his home in the 100 block of Westbury Road shortly after the son stepped outside. Police arrested the son, and he was being interviewed by homicide detectives last night. No charges had been filed. Neighbors said the 37-year-old son had moved into his father's house about six months ago. Shortly after 8 a.m., a Glen Burnie man had called the Kauffman home about a meeting he and the father were to have there later in the day at the house, said police spokesman Shawn Vinson.

Ever since 1929, when architect-inventor Buckminster Fuller stunned the world with his alien-looking geodesic dome, planners and dreamers have plotted grand-scale designs of the future.Disney's 1957 "House of Tomorrow," for instance, wasn't just an amusement park attraction but a guesstimate of the plastic, pre-fabbed world we'd live in centuries hence. Levittown wasn't just a means for sheltering legions of returning World War II vets, but the very blueprint for modern suburbia. Yes, Bill Gates' $53 million Seattle mansion is a latter-day variation on the Newport megastructures that America's robber barons built at the last fin de siecle, but it's also a laboratory for the technological and environmental innovations that, one day, will echo in houses for the masses.

Brady AndersonWhat he would be doing if there were no strike: Anderson, 31, would be preparing for another season as the Orioles' regular left fielder, and perhaps for a new spot in the batting order. New manager Phil Regan is considering using rookie Curtis Goodwin to lead off and play center field, and has talked about batting Anderson anywhere from second to sixth in the order. Last year, Anderson batted .263 with 12 homers, 48 RBIs and 31 stolen bases in 32 attempts.Where he is instead: Anderson is at his father's home in Poway, Calif.

At 7 years old, Thomas Albright started selling fruits and vegetables in front of his father's house in Jacksonville. Thirty years later, not much has changed for Albright. He can still be seen selling produce in front of his father's house, which sits across from the Jacksonville Volunteer Fire Company. In fact, Albright says, the family produce stand might be Jacksonville's oldest business. "We've been here for 30 years, in basically the same location," Albright said. Albright, who has two young sons, wanted to make sure the family farm would be around if they decided to stay in the farming business.

PHILADELPHIA -- When police burst through David Ebron's front door, pointed guns at him and ordered him to put his hands in the air, he felt only one emotion: relief. "I feel like a weight has been lifted off me, and I'm just glad no one got hurt," Ebron said after police stormed his North Philadelphia rowhouse Saturday afternoon and arrested Richard Antonio Moore and Wesley John Moore. Ebron, 66, took in his brother's grandsons when they showed up at his home about 6: 30 p.m. Thursday because they were family and needed a place to stay.

Before Donald DeLong sent his son Jason back to Maryland, he gave him a 3-inch, folding, leather-working knife as a going-away present."I wanted him to get involved in working with his hands," the elder Mr. DeLong recalled yesterday from the stand during his son's first-degree murder trial in Carroll Circuit Court in Westminster.Prosecutors contend that the ivory-colored knife -- which has never been found -- was one of two weapons used in the fatal stabbings of Jason DeLong's mother, Cathryn Brace Farrar, and her boyfriend, George William Wahl, at her Westminster apartment last summer.
