For a state that has taken great pains to shield its judges from undue political pressures, Maryland now faces a dilemma. It can beef up its system of judicial discipline or watch as public anger fuels pressure for impeaching a Baltimore County Circuit Court judge who imposed a light sentence and expressed sympathy for a man who killed his wife.At a press conference in Annapolis earlier this month, a majority of women legislators announced that they will initiate action in the General Assembly to remove Baltimore County Circuit Judge Robert Cahill from the bench.

The Dundalk man gunned down last week outside his tavern was struck by four bullets in the head and four in the chest. He was still breathing when help arrived but was beyond saving by the time he reached a hospital. A day after Robert Lee Martin's wife, her brother and two accomplices were charged with first-degree murder in the barkeep's death, additional details of the killing emerged Thursday in a Towson courtroom during the defendants' bail review hearing. Garret P. Glennon, an assistant state's attorney who oversees murder charges for the county, told the judge that an "appreciable amount of planning" had gone into the shooting of the tavern owner early Saturday as he left Hop's Inn for the night, a "coordinated effort" that involved a "division of labor."
