A Baltimore jury convicted Marcus Satchell Thursday of second degree murder for shooting and killing a man in the Northwest Baltimore in 2010, after he mailed a confession to the victim's family, the State's Attorney's office said. Satchell, 35, picked up his victim - identified in Baltimore Sun records as Javon Perry, 27 - on July 17, 2010 and took him to Park Heights Avenue. They got in a fight and another person gave Satchell a handgun, prosecutors said. He fired four times, hitting Perry in the neck once, prosecutors said.

Her daughter disowned her as a devil-worshiping witch. Police didn't believe her allegations of brainwashing. And social services said they weren't equipped to deal with a cult. But Seeta Newton still would not let her grandson Javon go. Her dreams pushed her to hold on. In one, the infant boy clings to Newton's neck while his mother, Ria, floats toward them, her arms spread wide, gown sleeves hanging like angel wings. Javon whispers insistently in Newton's ear: I want to come live where you live.

The head of Baltimore's Division of Social Services said yesterday that her agency received two calls from people concerned about the welfare of a 15-month-old boy who police said died while in the care of a religious group, some of whose members have now been charged with murder. But Molly McGrath, the chief operating officer of DSS, said the complaints about how Javon Thompson was treated while with 1 Mind Ministries were not specific enough to thoroughly investigate. Police said the toddler was denied food and water because he would not say amen after meals.

Tiffany Brown's Christmas list included a Tweety Bird coat, a Tweety Bird blanket, Tweety Bird sheets and a cell phone. Those gifts would have been carefully wrapped and tucked under the little tree that she and her young sister had decorated with gold tinsel and red bows. They would have been opened at the family Christmas party. But Tiffany's life ended abruptly in Pigtown on Wednesday when a van hit the 13-year-old and a boy minutes after classes let out at Diggs-Johnson Middle School at 3:35 p.m. "It hurts so bad," Tiffany's mother, Mechell Parents, said yesterday as tears streamed down her face.

The trial of four people accused of being members of an abusive cult was delayed again Tuesday after the leader and a follower chose to defend themselves against charges that they starved 2-year-old Javon Thompson to death. The murder trial has been postponed several times because Queen Antoinette, 40, and Trevia Williams, 21, said they had a lawyer when, in fact, they did not, or said they were going to hire a lawyer and never did. Prosecutors Julie Drake and Patricia McLane had attempted to have Antoinette, the leader of the defunct 1 Mind Ministries, and Williams psychologically evaluated for a possible insanity defense, but the two defendants refused to cooperate.

Baltimore police have obtained warrants charging four more members of what authorities call a religious cult in the death of 2-year-old Javon Thompson, whose body was found in May in a suitcase in Philadelphia. The warrants bring the number of people charged in the boy's death to five. Charged with murder in warrants were Queen Antoinette, 40, Trevia Williams, 20, Marcus Cobbs, 21, and Steven Bynum, 42. All but Bynum are in jail on other charges, and the Warrant Apprehension Task Force is looking for Bynum in the New York area, said Sterling Clifford, a spokesman for the city's Police Department.

A Baltimore woman who police say is connected to a religious cult has been charged with first- degree murder in the death of her child, according to court documents obtained yesterday. Ria Ramkissoon, 21, also known as "Princess Marie," additionally is charged with child abuse, reckless endangerment and other offenses in the death of 21-month-old Javon Thompson. In December 2006, Ramkissoon had taken her son and joined the religious group, 1 Mind Ministries, which operated for a time out of East Baltimore, according to relatives and police.

A 22-year-old woman accused of starving her infant son to death pleaded guilty Monday afternoon to one count of child abuse resulting in death and will be released from jail in exchange for her cooperation against her co-defendants, who prosecutors say are fellow members of a cult called 1 Mind Ministries. The unusual plea agreement also includes a "process of deprogramming" for Ria Ramkissoon and the promise that charges will be dropped if 2-year-old Javon Thompson is resurrected. Ramkissoon's attorney said his client insisted on the clause, which he believes is a first in American legal history, because she still holds out hope that her son will be brought back to life.

A jury will decide whether 21-year-old Ria Ramkissoon is guilty of murder in the death of her son, Javon Thompson, who police say was starved to death in 2006 while his mother was a member of 1 Mind Ministries, a secretive Baltimore cult. But it's already clear that others also were involved. The 21-month-old toddler's death, related in charging documents released this week, is a horrific tale of cruelty and neglect. Police say Ms. Ramkissoon allowed group members to beat her son for trivial infractions such as disobeying orders to say "amen" at meals, then slowly starved him to death.
