After approximately nine hours of deliberation, the Howard County Circuit Court jury tasked with deciding the fate of the defendant in the Maryland School for the Deaf sex abuse case remains deadlocked, according to deputy Howard County State's Attorney Mary Murphy. The 12-member jury spent all day Tuesday deliberating on the charges against Clarence Cepheus Taylor III, 38, of Baltimore County, who is accused of groping, and in some cases kissing, seven girls while working as an aide at the school's Columbia campus from 2008 to 2011.

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.

A jury on Monday evening said that a national homebuilder owes $5.6 million to an Anne Arundel County condo association because their condominium complex was poorly constructed, according to the association's attorney. Following a five week trial and testimony from more than two dozen residents of the Eden Brook Condominiums in Odenton, a jury determined that Virginia-based NVR Inc., which does business as Ryan Homes, NVHomes and Fox Ridge Homes, should pay homeowners for defective construction and misrepresentations about the quality of the complex's construction, said attorney T. Allen Mott, of the Baltimore law firm Cowie & Mott.

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.

The jury in the trial of three men accused of the murder of Kenneth N. Harris had two questions Monday - neither of which the judge answered. In the first, jurors wondered how many guns had been used in the hold-up of the New Haven Lounge, to which retired Baltimore Circuit Judge David Ross responded that the jury should study the evidence at its disposal. The second question was whether Jerome Williams, the youngest of the defendants, was holding a gun during the crime. The judge's answer was the same.

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. The defendant faces counts of first- and second-degree murder and child abuse in the death of Cameron Justin Williams, who had been left in Savage's care on Nov. 1, 2009, while the boy's mother went to work.

A city jury awarded $600,000 to a sheriff's deputy who was arrested by a police officer in 2008 when he tried to help with an emergency call. The decision came after a three-day civil trial, said Adam Sean Cohen, an attorney for Baltimore Sheriff's Deputy Arthur Phillips. "The citizens of Baltimore will not allow police officers to indiscriminately arrest people and try to cover it up with lies," Cohen said. City Solicitor George Nilson did not return a phone call seeking comment.

A 44-year-old Gwynn Oak man was convicted Monday of second-degree attempted murder and second-degree rape in the first of three city trials in which he is accused of sexual assault and murder. A Baltimore jury deliberated roughly three hours before returning the verdict against William Vincent Brown, who faces up to 50 years in prison, according to the Baltimore State's Attorney's Office. Brown was accused of acting as an illegal "hack" taxi driver and picking up the victim in April 2003, assaulting and brutally beating her. He nearly severed her ears from her head, according to the woman's pre-trial testimony, and dumped her comatose body in Leakin Park.

A Baltimore jury on Monday afternoon acquitted Keith X. Holly Jr., 23, who was accused of murdering James Ingram, 46, two years ago. Holly had denied committing the crime, and his public defender argued that it was committed by another man, Donte Collins, who has since been killed. The state's case "just doesn't make sense," said Denise Winston, the defender, during closing arguments. Prosecutors relied on the testimony of Renee Barnes, Collins' mother and a longtime friend of Ingram's; Yvette Edwards, a neighbor; and Latia Moses, Collins' girlfriend and the mother of his child.
