A meeting attended by more than a hundred residents of the Thirteenth District was held in the Arbutus Community Hall last Friday night, for the purpose of taking measures to prevent more tragedies such as that in which three girls were drowned in an ice-covered pond near Lansdowne last week. A resolution was passed, requesting the Baltimore County Commissioners either to fill in or fence in the ponds and ore holes in the Lansdowne, Relay, Halethorpe and Arbutus sections.

CUMBERLAND -- John A. Miller IV, described by prosecutors as a "highly motivated predator" who lured a Carroll County girl to her death, was convicted yesterday of murder and sexual assault, setting the stage for a death penalty hearing next week. Miller, 27, was found guilty of first-degree murder, a first-degree sexual offense, robbery and false imprisonment in the strangling of 17-year-old Shen D. Poehlman in Reisterstown in July 1998. The defense had conceded that Miller killed the girl but had fought the sexual-assault and robbery allegations, knowing that prosecutors needed those convictions to pursue the death penalty.

Liberty tennis coach Bruce Damasio has a simple philosophy, which was at its best in yesterday's Carroll County Tennis Championships in Eldersburg."I always tell the kids at the beginning of the season that you want to be better in May than you are in March. May is what counts," the 16-year coach said."And here's a good example," he added, pointing to Shen Poehlman, who had just won the county girls singles title over top-seeded Courtney Liddick of Westminster. "She worked her way up."Poehlman started the season playing doubles before moving to No. 2 singles in the last week of April.

It has been a decade since Chuck Poehlman unzipped the body bag to see the thick purple bruise around his daughter's neck and the shoe imprint left on her chest by the man who stood on top of her as he strangled the life out of her with a belt. Family members attended countless court hearings as John A. Miller IV was tried, convicted of killing 17-year-old Shen Poehlman and sentenced to death. There have been more court dates since that sentence was overturned and Miller agreed to plead guilty if prosecutors dropped their pursuit of a second death sentence, only to have him spend the past 15 months trying to undo that agreement.

For years, Chuck Poehlman couldn't imagine anything less than an execution for the man who sexually assaulted and strangled his 17-year-old daughter after hiring her to baby-sit his nephew. Even after the convicted killer's death sentence was overturned, Poehlman was adamant that prosecutors ought to pursue the death penalty the second time around. But the Carroll County man has relented, finally signing off this year on a plea agreement designed to end the years of roller coaster-like appeals that so many victims' families experience in capital cases while also ensuring that a murderer will spend most, and perhaps all, of his life behind bars.

Once again, the murderer was in the spotlight. The prosecutors and victims' advocates had warned Chuck Poehlman that this would happen, that some days it would seem as if his teen-age daughter had been forgotten, that people cared only about her killer. He knew that other victims' families, faced with a court ruling that overturned a death sentence, had asked prosecutors to avoid another capital trial and instead agree to a plea. And after he learned Thursday that the Maryland Court of Appeals had set aside the death sentence for the killer of 17-year-old Shen Poehlman, he knew people might wonder whether he would do the same.
