Calling his crime "diabolical," a Howard County judge sentenced Paul Stephen Riggins, the Elkridge man convicted of killing his long-missing wife, to life in prison yesterday. Before imposing the sentence and with crying friends of Nancy Lee Riggins huddled on courtroom benches, Judge Lenore R. Gelfman noted that the killing left the couple's only child, Amanda, who turns 11 tomorrow, without either parent - and friends and family without a grave to visit. "The family has no place to mourn, no sense of closure," she said.

For more than a decade, Paul Stephen Riggins resolutely maintained that he did not kill his wife. After all, there was no body, blood, fibers or crime scene. His conviction was based solely on circumstantial evidence. Earlier this month, however, he led Howard County detectives from prison, where he is serving a life sentence for killing Nancy Lee Riggins, to a patch of woods off Hanover Road in Anne Arundel County. There police found human remains and are awaiting the results of DNA analysis to confirm a match with Riggins' wife, the department announced yesterday.

Federal authorities did not make a "bad faith" decision when they destroyed most of the suspected explosives found in Richmond C. Laney's Ellicott City home last summer before the devices could be tested, a Howard County Circuit Court judge ruled yesterday. Instead, investigators appeared to be motivated by concern for the public's safety, Judge Raymond J. Kane Jr. said before denying the former sheriff candidate's motion to dismiss prosecutors' case against him. Yesterday's ruling boosted prosecutors over the most basic of hurdles stemming from the Army's decision to detonate the cache of suspected explosives that were discovered July 14 in Laney's Fels Lane house.
