Four men who allegedly used profits from Baltimore's drug trade to try to make a name in the rap music business face rarely used federal racketeering charges that could bring the death penalty, federal authorities announced yesterday as they linked the group to as many as five unsolved city homicides. These include the slaying in March 2002 of an associate of former heavyweight boxing champion Hasim S. Rahman and a woman the man was dating at the time. The group also is charged with a second double killing less than a month later - a crime solved in part with the help of an inadvertent cell phone message.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. - In a setback for the government, a federal judge ordered yesterday that four men whom prosecutors had linked to a violent terrorist group be released until trial - even as another judge ruled that a fifth suspect must remain in custody. Taken as a whole, the actions suggested a weaker case than the one the Justice Department portrayed last week, when it unsealed an indictment that it called a step forward in the war against terrorism. At one point yesterday, prosecutors even agreed that one defendant posed no threat to the community and should be released without bail until trial.
