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.

THERE WERE moments of humor and even what might pass for candor during some contentious exchanges. But, for the most part, the confirmation hearings of John G. Roberts Jr. to be chief justice of the United States have been carefully scripted, with few if any surprises. Given the stakes - the first hearing on a Supreme Court nominee in 11 years and the first for chief justice in 19 years - the posturing by some senators and the frequent evasiveness by Judge Roberts was predictable. But after a day of opening statements and two days of interrogation, the senators and the public had at least a picture of Judge Roberts - as he chose to present himself.

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."

After saying that Leroy Lincoln Sr. seemed to be an "outstanding candidate for murder if there ever was one," a Baltimore Circuit Court judge found Lincoln's wife guilty yesterday of killing him. Geralene Lincoln, 57, could receive up to two life sentences for planning the 1995 bludgeoning death of her husband, who sexually abused their daughters and forced their sons to sell drugs, according to testimony. The state's theory of the case is that Lincoln was the mastermind behind the killing, while her son, Leroy Lincoln Jr., and a third defendant, John Ulrich, carried it out with the handle of an ax from her house.
