You know who Ringo Starr is. You know where he's been, and what he's done. You probably know that for the last 25 years, he has toured regularly with a rotating All-Starr Band of famous friends, playing some of his own hits and letting them play some of theirs. You might know that when he's not touring, he's making new music. That he continues to put out new records every few years or so. You might not know that these records - half a dozen since the '90s - have been the best, most consistent, most consistently entertaining of his solo career.

Harford County State's Attorney Joseph I. Cassilly said yesterday that he hopes to have Jamal Kenneth Abeokuto moved to a jail in the county so a five-count indictment against the Baltimore man, handed up by a grand jury in Bel Air on Tuesday, can be served. The grand jury indicted Abeokuto, 23, on charges of kidnapping, first-degree murder, first-degree assault, extortion and carrying a weapon with intent to injure in the abduction and slaying of Marciana Ringo, 8, whose body was found in a wooded area in Joppatowne last month.

Marciana Ringo's name is still remembered on the streets where she used to play. But now there's a more tangible reminder of the 8-year-old girl, who was abducted and killed late last year. The 5200 block of Loch Raven Blvd., between the apartment complex where she lived and her elementary school, was renamed in her honor yesterday. "She's always going to be in my heart. Now she's going to be in everyone's heart as they pass by," said Delores Howell, Marciana's great-aunt. "This was really a great thing the city did."

As about 2,000 people packed the pews yesterday at a slain young girl's funeral, a priest urged the mourners at St. Matthew's Catholic Church in North Baltimore to rise up in outrage against the latest horrific act of city violence. "What kind of world do we live in when the greatest evil can attack the most innocent?" the Rev. Joseph L. Muth, Jr., said in an impassioned homily that brought some to their feet and others to tears as they paid their last respects to Marciana Monyai Ringo.

A Baltimore man who said a "voice" gave him four reasons why he should kill his girlfriend's 8-year-old daughter nearly two years ago was sentenced to death yesterday. The sentence for Jamaal K. Abeokuto came at the end of a daylong hearing that featured both the clinical -- a forensic psychiatrist's accounting of why he believed the 24-year-old man was feigning mental illness -- and the emotional -- the girl's parents' request for "an eye for an eye" and Abeokuto's own fervent apology.

The trial of the Baltimore man accused of killing Marciana Ringo, his girlfriend's 8-year-old daughter, was unexpectedly derailed yesterday when a court psychiatrist decided that Jamaal Abeokuto may not be competent to stand trial. After two days of wading through potential jurors, and only hours before attorneys in the death penalty case were planning to pick the jury, Abeokuto's lawyers filed a surprise motion saying their client was not mentally able to participate in his defense and needed a psychological evaluation.

The parents of an 8-year-old Northwood girl missing since Tuesday morning stood before television cameras last night at Baltimore's police headquarters in an appeal for her safe return, as the mystery surrounding the disappearance deepened.

The boyfriend did not enter the school building in the 5200 block of Leith Road, police said.

Under pressure from Harford County's top prosecutor and the family of a slain 8-year-old girl, U.S. Attorney Thomas M. DiBiagio said yesterday that his office would postpone its extortion case against murder suspect Jamal Abeokuto until after his death penalty trial in state court. DiBiagio's decision came after a meeting yesterday with relatives of Marciana Ringo, the Baltimore girl whose beaten body was discovered in Harford County, and after increasingly vocal criticism of the federal prosecutor by State's Attorney Joseph I. Cassilly.

Voicing prayers for unity and healing, hundreds of Northwood residents attended a candlelight vigil last night in memory of slain 8-year-old Marciana Monia Ringo, as the television program America's Most Wanted joined the nationwide hunt for her accused killer. Clutching candles and holding hands, people poured into the 5200 block of Loch Raven Blvd. in front of Northwood Elementary School where Marciana attended third grade. They formed a circle that enveloped a half-block -- with Marciana's mother, Milagro White, at the center.

Neighbors and relatives gathered last night, the first night of Kwanzaa, to pray for justice in the killing of 8-year-old Marciana Ringo. The first night of Kwanzaa is umoja, which means unity, said Eric Easton, a community activist from Reservoir Hill who organized the vigil. "We are united today in our quest to make sure children are safe in Baltimore," Easton said. About 30 people gathered on the median of the 5200 block of Loch Raven Blvd., across the street from Northwood Elementary School, where Marciana was a pupil.
