Victoria Vernetta Glover had taken the available legal steps to protect herself from an allegedly abusive husband but was killed nonetheless. Police say Cory Bowman shot his estranged wife this week outside her Parkville home as she was putting her 3-year-old son in a car. In recent months, she had filed for divorce, citing cruelty as grounds, obtained a protective order and pressed assault charges on which Bowman was out on bail. He was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in a Baltimore apartment a day after her killing, police confirmed Thursday.

A Baltimore County jury on Tuesday rejected a White Marsh woman's claim that the only way to end years of spousal abuse was to hire a hit man to kill her husband. The jury, composed of nine women and three men, convicted Karla Porter of first-degree murder in a case that tested the scope of self-defense arguments. The 51-year-old defendant stood stoically in a dark pant suit with her long red hair tightly braided as the jury foreman read the verdict, which could send her to prison for the rest of her life without the possibility of parole.

Jurors are expected to begin deliberating Monday whether Karla Porter is guilty of premeditated murder for hiring a man to kill her husband, or of a lesser charge because she was acting in self-defense. Porter, 51, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her husband of 24 years, William "Ray" Porter. He was shot to death March 1, 2010, at the Towson gas station he owned after prosecutors said his wife offered to pay an Essex man $9,000. The hit man, William Bishop, was previously convicted in the murder and is serving a life sentence.

When her husband of 30 years died in 2004, Rosalie Lijinsky decided she no longer wanted to live in the 3,000-square-foot home they had shared with their daughter in the Columbia neighborhood of Hickory Ridge. She sold the house the same year for $720,000, more than double the purchase price, and rented a townhouse in Columbia with a view of Lake Elkhorn. Five years later, she purchased a townhouse in the same community overlooking the lake for $370,000. Her new home, built in 1986, has four stories, but it's about half the size of her previous residence, she said.

Karla Porter matter-of-factly confessed on Thursday to hiring a hit man to kill her husband, testifying that she had him shot because she feared he would kill her first. "If Ray was alive, I would be dead," Karla Porter said as she gave three hours of testimony in her murder trial in Baltimore County Circuit Court. The 51-year-old White Marsh woman could face life in prison in the death of William "Ray" Porter, who was gunned down March 1, 2010, at the Towson gas station he owned.

Accused of ordering a man to kill her husband at a Towson gas station, Karla Porter claims that she felt she had no other choice as she sought to escape an abusive relationship in which she believed her life was in danger. "Ray Porter had become verbally abusive, controlling … physically abusive," Porter's attorney, Teresa Whalen, said in opening statements Tuesday. She said Porter's husband once ground her face into her mother's headstone, telling her she should be dead, too. But prosecutors urged jurors not to lose sight of the fact that the White Marsh woman arranged the hit on her husband and tried to mislead authorities, starting with the 911 call in which she claimed that an unknown man had shot her husband and fled the scene.

Julie Stitt begged her husband for years to let her donate her kidney as he spent nearly a decade in dialysis, through two failed transplants. Last year, he relented. It was a difficult decision. Her husband, Chuck, didn't want her to make the sacrifice. And she knew her father, Richard Kern, would need a transplant eventually as nearly five decades of diabetes wore on his kidneys. That time came about a month after her decision. "It was a hard place," Julie Stitt said. "I wanted to give to my husband, but I knew my father would need one. " She volunteered to donate to a stranger, getting her husband on a donation exchange waiting list.
