An Annapolis woman who admitted her role in a 1994 murder was sentenced to 14 years in prison yesterday by an Anne Arundel Circuit Court judge who said her drug habit was no excuse for her actions.Wanda R. Hall, 32, of the 1000 block of Bay Ridge Road received the maximum sentence from Judge Bruce C. Williams for being an accessory after the fact to second-degree murder in the stabbing death of Susan McAteer of Annapolis."This is another tragic result of drug use, but I don't think we can look at this as just another case of drug use being responsible," Judge Williams said.

A nervous key witness told an Anne Arundel County Circuit Court jury yesterday that she was identifying defendant Richard E. Janey as her friend's killer because it's the truth, not because that testimony could win her freedom from prison.The opening day of Janey's trial -- his third on a charge that he killed Susan McAteer -- focused on Wanda R. Hall, who had refused to testify in the past but made a deal to take the witness stand this time.The pact that Hall, 34, made with prosecutors Feb. 11 calls for her to testify in exchange for the state's recommendation of her release from a 14-year prison term into a residential drug treatment program or the state's support in reducing her sentence to a year in the county jail and outpatient drug treatment.

An Anne Arundel County Circuit Court jury convicted an Annapolis man yesterday of helping to hide a 1994 murder, but it deadlocked on whether he killed the woman.The unusual split decision leaves room for a third trial on whether Richard E. Janey murdered Susan McAteer. But, as in this trial, which came after the Court of Special Appeals overturned Janey's murder conviction, evidence of previous beatings would be excluded.McAteer's family was livid."It's a huge blow, to our family of course, and to the fight against domestic violence," said Susan McAteer's brother Marc McAteer, 37, of Annapolis.

Moments into the retrial in a notorious 1994 Annapolis murder, defense lawyers accused the prosecutor of making an improper reference and sought a mistrial yesterday. They failed.In his opening statements to the Anne Arundel Circuit Court jury, assistant state's attorney Frederick Paone characterized the relationship between defendant Richard E. Janey and the late Susan McAteer as "an abusive relationship."Nancy Cohen, Janey's lawyer, immediately objected. She told Judge Clayton R. Greene Jr. that the allusion to domestic violence, especially at a time when the issue receives so much public attention, was out of line.
