A Baltimore jury convicted two men on murder, extortion and false imprisonment charges Wednesday for abducting a man and taking his girlfriend's ransom money before killing him and dumping his body in the Patapsco River. Eric Pendergrass went missing in early 2009 and turned up dead soon after. The jury convicted Donta Vaughn, 37, and Darryl Nichols, 38, of the abduction plot after about a day of deliberation. Sherrell Ferguson, 32, who helped obtain the ransom payments, according to court records, pleaded guilty to first-degree murder earlier this month.

Adrift with his captors in sight of U.S. warships, the American sea captain being held for ransom by Somali pirates briefly escaped their lifeboat by jumping overboard, a U.S. official said Friday, but was recaptured and brought back. The U.S. military said Richard Phillips, who was taken by the pirates from the U.S.-flagged Maersk Alabama on Wednesday, appeared unharmed after the escape attempt. The military, which has been maintaining real-time video surveillance via an unmanned drone overhead, observed him moving around on the lifeboat after he was recaptured.

A man who was suffocated and found floating in the Patapsco River this week had been abducted and held for ransom and is believed to be connected to a violent drug gang whose feuding with rivals may have been responsible for at least five homicides last summer, according to law enforcement sources and court records. Authorities are monitoring the situation and exploring leads as it remains unclear whether the killing of Eric Pendergrass, 26, is an isolated incident or related to the spate of retaliatory violence associated with the April kidnapping of the teenage brothers Stephon and Sterling Blackwell.

With Ransom and her teenage daughter, Tiffany Hancock, standing just a few feet away, the officer shot the dog in the back.
