A 29-year-old accused of killing her baby and burying him in Druid Hill Park pleaded guilty Wednesday to involuntary manslaughter and was given a 10-year suspended sentence. While Lakesha Haynie was able to walk free for the first time since her arrest 10 months ago, she will be on probation for five years, must report to the Department of Social Services if she becomes pregnant again and is forbidden to have unsupervised contact with children ages 6 and younger. She must also attend a counseling program at Planned Parenthood on Jan. 24. Baltimore Circuit Judge Charles J. Peters told Haynie that if she violates any of the terms of her probation, "this court will not hesitate to put you in jail" for the rest of the 10-year sentence.

Accompanied by his mother and a lawyer, Orioles reliever Alfredo Simon, suspected of killing a man during a New Year's Eve party, surrendered Monday to police in the Dominican Republic and said the shooting had been an accident. Police said Simon, in blue jeans and a dark purple shirt, handed over a gun used in the incident, which resulted in the death of a 25-year-old man and the wounding of his 17-year-old half brother. Authorities said Simon fled after the 4 a.m. shootings Saturday and later they issued an arrest warrant for him. A spokesman for the National Police, Lt. Gonzalez Mateo, told The Baltimore Sun that the case remained under investigation and that any possible charges would have to await the detectives' conclusion.

One man stabbed another in an argument over marijuana — hardly a unique motive for a killing in Baltimore. But this confrontation occurred on South Calvert Street in the heart of the city's tourist district, two blocks from the Inner Harbor. It happened shortly after 10 in the morning on a warm spring day in April 2007. It happened in a stairwell of a McDonald's restaurant. A tourist from New York followed the suspect and called the police, who quickly made an arrest.

A man from Friendship admitted guilt Monday in the drunken-driving death of an elderly motorist, a man who was on his way to the home of a disabled friend whom he drove to work almost every day for more than 15 years. Sean Kevin Fitzgibbon, 28, pleaded guilty to automobile manslaughter in the death of Robert Francis Burdette, 74, of Clinton, before Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge William C. Mulford II. Assistant State's Attorney Brian Marsh said prosecutors intend to seek a jail term followed by five years of supervised probation when Fitzgibbon is sentenced in September.

A jury has found a Baltimore police officer not guilty of manslaughter in the 2008 shooting death of an unarmed man who ran from him to evade arrest. Fifteen witnesses took the stand over the course of the four-day trial of Officer Tommy Sanders, who faced voluntary and involuntary manslaughter charges in the death of Edward Lamont Hunt, 27. Sanders testified that Hunt assaulted him during a drug arrest at Hamilton Park Shopping Center two years ago, and that if Hunt hadn't reached for his pocket while running away, the five-year veteran wouldn't have shot him twice in the back.

Baltimore Officer Tommy Sanders drew from his upbringing in the city's Park Heights neighborhood, his six months of police training and his days patrolling the city's "hot spots" to defend himself when he took the stand in his manslaughter trial Wednesday. Sanders, who is accused of unnecessarily shooting and killing a 27-year-old man who was evading arrest two years ago, told the jury that he was certain that Edward Lamont Hunt made a reaching motion as he ran from Sanders in the Hamilton Park Shopping Center in January 2008.

The defense and prosecution agree: There's no question that Edward Lamont Hunt ran away from Officer Tommy Sanders in January 2008 in the Hamilton Park Shopping Center in Northeast Baltimore. But whether that meant he was resisting arrest, or justified Sanders' firing his gun three times, striking Hunt in the back twice, is another matter, attorneys argued Tuesday. The jury trial of Sanders, charged with voluntary manslaughter in Hunt's shooting death, began Tuesday with defense attorney Michael J. Belsky vowing to prove that the officer's response to Hunt's attempt to evade arrest was in line with his training.
