A Baltimore County jury found an Anne Arundel County man guilty Monday in the fatal stabbing of a woman he once dated. Jeffrey Shiflett, 35, was convicted of first-degree murder and related offenses in an attack in which he walked into Katie Hadel's Garrison apartment carrying a long knife and stabbed her nearly 30 times in front of her 2-year-old daughter. Hadel was under police protection at the time of her death after years of harassment and threats from Shiflett. As the verdict was read, Hadel's mother had tears in her eyes.

Former cardiologist Mark Midei improperly placed three stents in the heart of a prominent businessman who didn't need them, a Baltimore County jury ruled Wednesday in a malpractice case. The jury also found the former owners of St. Joseph Medical Center partly responsible because Midei appeared to be its representative, which means that the penalty phase of the trial can go forward to determine how much both defendants should pay. The lawsuit seeks $150 million in damages, including from lost income and emotional distress.

Her hand shaking, the defendant held a tissue to her face and appeared to stifle sobs as her recorded voice echoed through the courtroom. "I will survive you," Mary C. Koontz told her husband, whom she is accused of killing, in one of 23 phone messages — many of them belligerent and profane — that were played Monday during her trial in Baltimore County Circuit Court. "I won't make any threats that I won't carry out." Later in that same call, she said, "I have had all the pain I'm going to take."

About 320 Anne Arundel County residents were scheduled to complete jury questionnaires Friday in preparation for the upcoming criminal trial of County Executive John R. Leopold. Leopold, in the midst of his second term, is fighting charges that he used his taxpayer-funded police security detail to arrange sexual liaisons and to defeat political opponents. His trial on four counts of misconduct in office and fraudulent misappropriation is scheduled to begin in mid-January. Advance questionnaires for potential jurors are typically used in high-profile, death penalty or complicated cases in which a large number of people will be called for jury duty.

A Baltimore County jury on Monday began considering the fate of Brian Maurice Savage, 22, accused of beating to death his girlfriend's 15-month-old baby last year. The jury retired to deliberate after hearing closing arguments from Savage's attorney, Roland Walker, and Assistant State's Attorney Karen Pilarski. Savage's trial began last Tuesday in Baltimore County Circuit Court.

After deliberating for 15 hours over three days, a Baltimore County jury rejected a 60-year-old woman's insanity defense on Thursday and found her guilty of shooting her estranged husband to death and of trying to kill their teenage daughter. Mary C. Koontz, a former English teacher at Sparrows Point High School, showed no visible reaction in the tense courtroom as the jury's forewoman declared her "guilty" of each of six counts — including first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder and assault — and answered "yes" to a final question, which asked whether the defendant was criminally responsible for the crimes.

A turbulent spring among a family of immigrants nine years ago led to a plot to slash the throats of three young children, prosecutors said Thursday in closing arguments in the murder trial of Policarpio Espinoza Perez. "There was something terribly wrong in that family dynamic," Assistant State's Attorney Nicole Lomartire said. Prosecutors told a story about the days and hours before the killings, pointing to romantic tensions among members of the large Espinoza Perez family of illegal immigrants from Mexico, but stopped short of spelling out a conclusive motive for the May 2004 killings.

The case against three men standing trial in the death of former City Councilman Kenneth N. Harris continued Friday with the testimony of a police crime lab specialist. Richard Remy, a 31-year-old criminalist in serology at the Police Department's crime lab, spent hours on the witness stand providing compelling and even cheerful testimony on matters often considered tedious and arcane. His command of the facts earned him a degree of deference. "I compliment you — it's beyond thorough the amount of work you've put into this," Jason E. Silverstein, who represents defendant Charles Y. McGaney, told the witness, who had explained at considerable length how he obtained samples of skin cells and other microscopic matter from several items found at and near the scene of the Sept.
