Baltimore County police said yesterday that homicide detectives are investigating the death of a man whose body was found in a 2002 fire, launching a fresh inquiry into the case after the recent sentencing of the man's widow in the killing of her boyfriend more than three years later. Clarence "Buddy" Downs III's body was found in a house fire that was ruled to have been accidentally caused by careless smoking, but investigators said there was revived interest in the case after the body of a boyfriend of con artist Cynthia J. McKay was found on fire in February 2006 in Anne Arundel County.

The 20-year-old son of a brazen con artist who has been convicted of killing her boyfriend and then setting his body on fire is scheduled to plead guilty later this month for his role in that crime, according to court records. Matthew Haarhoff is charged with first-degree murder in the February 2006 death of Tony Fertitta, whose body was found burning in the Old Mill community of Anne Arundel County. A family member said yesterday that Haarhoff was expected to plead to a lesser charge, but his attorney and prosecutors declined to discuss the details of the plea.

The 20-year-old son of a career thief who received 30 years in prison Tuesday in the stabbing death of her boyfriend entered a guilty plea yesterday to a charge that he helped dispose of the body. Matthew Haarhoff was released from jail after more than two years awaiting trial. But Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge Pamela L. North tacked on one condition to the plea agreement that led to his release: Haarhoff can have no contact with his mother, Cynthia J. McKay, for one year. "You need a recess from her," North said.

Anne Arundel County prosecutors said Christopher James Haarhoff, 21, who was initially charged with first-degree murder in the February 2006 death of Anthony Fertitta, helped his mother, Cynthia J. McKay, drag Fertitta's body out of her Millersville house, through a back door and onto the sidewalk of her community, where it was doused with gasoline and set afire.

A 52-year-old career thief and mother of six was convicted yesterday of secretly stealing thousands of dollars from her boyfriend and stabbing him to death before his body was found burning along an Anne Arundel County road. Two weeks before her trial was to begin, Cynthia J. McKay entered a guilty plea to charges of second-degree murder and felony theft, ducking a possible life sentence in a crime that ensnared two of her sons. She now faces a maximum penalty of 30 years. Prosecutors and defense attorneys involved in the case said piecing together not just the death of Anthony Fertitta, whose body was found ablaze not far from McKay's Millersville townhouse in February 2006, but McKay's past made the case one of the most complicated they had ever handled.

It was one of those "don't snooze or you lose" kind of pro boxing shows at Michael's Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie Friday evening.Just under eight rounds of boxing marked what was the fastest show in Anne Arundel County since pro boxing returned to the county in August 1987.Highly touted heavyweight Thomas "Top Dog" Williams of Washington and upstart locals Bobby "The Maryland Mauler" Haarhoff and Alfonzo "Too Good For You" Daniels knocked out their opponents in rapid succession.Glen Burnie's Jeff "Persecutor" Passero was the only winner on the four-bout card to go the distance.

One thing you have to say about boxing promoters Josh Hall and Victoria Savaliski is that they try to please.And because local boxing fans want a feast with their fists, that's what are going to get Thursday at Michael's Eighth Avenue.Hall and Savaliski have worked hard to make pro boxing go in Anne Arundel County. But their dinner and boxing shows have experienced as many lows as highs in terms of attendance.So, when Hall attempted to stage an arena-style show in July, the response was rather surprising.
