Canadian officials today will try to deport a Baltimore man wanted in the fatal shooting in February of 20-year-old Anthony Henson in the victim's Brooklyn apartment.But David A. Gatton, also of Brooklyn, may have stalled the process for up to two years by charging that Maryland's death penalty is so harsh that he deserves protection under United Nations international law.At today's deportation hearing in Vancouver, British Columbia, Gatton is expected to cite an obscure 1951 United Nations Refugee Convention and the subsequent Torture Convention, which the United States signed in 1997.

William B. Gatton Sr. of Pasadena was 92, had just bought a new tire for the bicycle he regularly rode around the neighborhood and was with his son, on their way to have lunch. Michael T. Spears of Odenton was 37, had 45 prior criminal and traffic convictions, and had cut off the ankle bracelet he was wearing while on home detention for burglary when he sped through a red light while fleeing from police. That was June 25, 2004, in Crofton. Spears, crashing his truck into four cars before running from the scene, killed Gatton, who was a passenger in one of the cars, and blinded Gatton's son. Yesterday, Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge Joseph P. Manck sentenced Spears to eight years in prison, suspended another two years, and added five years of supervised probation for Spears' manslaughter conviction, the sentence requested by Assistant State's Attorney Shelly S. Glenn.
