He first heard the "wails for help" as he walked out of the police station about 10:30 p.m. Saturday. After jumping in his car, putting down the windows and following the sounds, the detective got closer and heard the sound of "metal hitting an object. " Soon after, Detective Mike Ebaugh of the Prince George's County Police Department allegedly witnessed a man "strike a nearly lifeless man with a shovel to the head," according to police.

The commissioner has warned that slashing his spending could erase achievements in crime reduction. But it appears that members of the Budget and Appropriations Committee want to talk about nearly everything but Budget and Appropriations. The committee's chief aide e-mailed a list of 14 questions to the police commissioner Tuesday to help him prepare for the hearing.
