Mr. Ohler, who was known as Ernie, earned a captain's license from the Coast Guard when he was 85 and maintained it well into his 90s, scoring 100 on his last qualifying written test.

A Rosedale heroin addict was convicted last night of the Thanksgiving Day 1998 killing of an elderly eastern Baltimore County couple, setting the stage for a possible death sentence this month. The Anne Arundel County Circuit Court jury deliberated more than five hours before finding Lawrence Michael Borchardt Sr., 48, guilty of two counts each of first-degree murder and robbery with a deadly weapon. Borchardt was convicted in the fatal stabbings of Joseph Ohler, 81, and Ohler's 82-year-old wife, Bernice.

In closing arguments yesterday, prosecutors told an Anne Arundel County jury that a Rosedale heroin addict on trial for murder robbed and killed a elderly couple because he wanted money to buy drugs and did not want to leave witnesses. "Stabbing them didn't matter to him," Baltimore County Assistant State's Attorney Stephen Bailey said shortly before the jury began deliberating. Testimony began Monday in the trial, which was moved out of Baltimore County due to pretrial publicity. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for Lawrence Michael Borchardt Sr., 48, accused of two first-degree murders and related charges in the Thanksgiving Day 1998 deaths of Joseph Ohler, 81, and his wife, Bernice, 82. The Rosedale couple was slain in their home in the 6500 block of Golden Ring Road after returning from a Thanksgiving meal.

A death row inmate from Baltimore County said during a court hearing yesterday that he wanted to give up the legal fight to save his life, but then changed his mind and decided to allow his legal team to proceed with a challenge alleging that he had ineffective counsel during his 2000 trial. The hearing, in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court, was ultimately postponed until early next year. Lawrence Michael Borchardt Sr., who was convicted for the Thanksgiving Day 1998 killings of an elderly couple in Rosedale, initially told the judge during yesterday's hearing that he wanted to end his challenge to his death sentence because of his poor health, saying, "They're going to kill me anyway."

A 48-year-old heroin addict was sentenced to death yesterday for the killing of an elderly Rosedale couple on Thanksgiving Day in 1998, after they had given him cash when he came panhandling through their neighborhood. Lawrence Michael Borchardt Sr., 48, sat stone-faced as an Anne Arundel County jury sentenced him for the stabbing deaths of Joseph Ohler, 81, and his wife, Bernice Ohler, 82. Borchardt becomes the 18th inmate on Maryland's death row, and the 11th from Baltimore County. He seemed almost lighthearted as he left the courtroom yesterday in leg irons and handcuffs, thanking Baltimore County Circuit Judge Barbara Kerr Howe and acknowledging the dozen spectators.
