A Baltimore County judge ruled yesterday that prosecutors will be able to present at trial statements that a former University of Maryland, Baltimore County student made to police when he confessed to beating a woman to death after their first date and described in gruesome detail how he disfigured her body to prevent her from being identified. Lawyers for John C. Gaumer, 23, had asked the judge to suppress the statements, arguing that they should be considered involuntary, in part because they were obtained during the time that police detained Gaumer between Feb. 7 and Feb. 8 before charging him with a crime.
