Prosecutors and defense attorneys in the trial of three men accused of killing former Baltimore Councilman Kenneth N. Harris will get a last chance on Thursday to convince jurors of the merits of their respective cases. Since the trial began Sept. 13, the jury in Baltimore Circuit Court has listened — sometimes wearily — to a long stream of prosecution witnesses testify in support of the state's contention that Charles McGaney, Gary Collins and Jerome Williams were responsible for the death of Harris, who stopped by a Northeast Baltimore jazz club just as it was about to be robbed at gunpoint and was shot as he tried to flee.

A jazz club owner who was with Kenneth N. Harris moments before the former Baltimore City Council member was shot to death said in court Tuesday that when a gunman approached them outside the club and ordered them back inside, Harris blurted out an expletive and then his wife's name, Annette. Harris, who was spending the evening with another woman, disregarded the gunman's commands and "broke off to get back to his car," where the woman was sitting, said the club owner, Keith A. Covington.

The trial of three city men accused of fatally shooting former City Councilman Kenneth N. Harris in 2008 was postponed Friday at the request of defense attorneys. A new trial date was not immediately scheduled. Charles Y. McGaney, 21, Gary Collins, 21, and Jerome Williams, 17, face first-degree murder charges in the fatal shooting of Harris at the Northwood Shopping Center on Sept. 20, 2008. All three remain held without bond at the city detention center.

The murder trial of three men accused of killing former City Councilman Kenneth N. Harris was postponed Monday because one defense attorney is in trial with another client and a second lawyer needs more time to investigate the case. The state also needs time to respond to a defense motion, filed by Jason Silverstein on Christmas Eve, seeking to throw out certain DNA evidence as illegally obtained. The new trial date for defendants Charles McGaney and Gary Collins, both 21, and Jerome Williams, 17, is April 30. The three young men are accused of fatally shooting Harris in the early morning of Sept.

Congressman Frank Kratovil was the last person we contacted when our family experienced a life changing medical event that caused us to mortgage our home via Countrywide, through which we got caught up in the subprime mess. After pursuing numerous avenues with the federal, state and private sources, we had given up in getting a response and assistance from our lender on resolving our mortgage. Congressman Kratovil and his staff responded to our request, and within days we had received a personal phone call and immediate action from the lender in correcting our mortgage to be within the government guidelines, thereby saving us from losing our home.

Harris Sr. A hearing on the gag order could occur as early as 11 a.m. today in Baltimore District Court, but is likely to be postponed. Attorneys for Gary Collins and Charles Y. McGaney, who are accused of fatally shooting Harris outside a Northeast Baltimore jazz club during a robbery, requested the order, saying it was necessary to ensure a fair and impartial jury.
