In a brief ceremony Friday, the family of a dentist slain in his Glen Burnie office and the Korean Society of Maryland thanked police, prosecutors and other Anne Arundel County officials who worked to bring the four-year-old homicide case to a recent indictment. "It's a good thing for the detectives — they did a good thing and they are working very hard — to show our appreciation," said Dr. Charles Kim, a brother-in-law of the victim, Dr. Albert Woonho Ro.

Leopold, Sheriff Ronald Bateman and others.
