Mathaddues Rozier, a Baltimore man accused of killing his own father and a 15-year-old on the same day two years ago, pleaded guilty yesterday to second-degree murder of the teenager. Rozier was sentenced to 25 years in prison for that crime, and prosecutors dropped charges in the case involving his 79-year-old father, Alvester Rozier. It's the end of a bizarre tale that involved a public quarrel between police and prosecutors. Police originally charged Gerald P. Reed with the Dec. 27, 2005, shooting death of Alvester Rozier.

Baltimore police captured a man early yesterday morning who had been charged in a warrant with killing a 79-year-old Southeast Baltimore resident. The Regional Warrant Apprehension Task Force and the U.S. Marshals Service found 26-year-old Gerald Reed about 7:20 a.m. at an apartment in the 100 block of N. Broadway, police said. Reed is accused of trying to kill Mathaddues Rozier, 25, on Dec. 26, and the killing the next day of Rozier's father, Alvester Rozier. Police say Reed shot the elder Rozier as he was trying to track down the man's son. The younger Rozier is being held on charges of fatally shooting a 15-year-old youth in what police believe was retaliation against Reed.

Seventy-nine-year-old Alvester Rozier got caught in two crossfires last week - the one in what police say was a drug dispute between his son and another man, and the politically charged one that flares from time to time between Baltimore police and prosecutors. None of this was Mr. Rozier's doing. He was just sitting in a chair. "He was a peaceful man," said his daughter, Jackie Rozier, who is here today from New York for her father's funeral. I met Jackie Rozier and her sister, Margaret Pharr, over breakfast yesterday, figuring there was more to this story than what was in these pages last week - a blame-game between police and prosecutors over an arrest warrant and the dubious claim that the police missed a chance to prevent Mr. Rozier's death.

Baltimore detectives believed they had enough evidence to charge Gerald P. Reed with the attempted murder of another man this week. But prosecutors balked at issuing an arrest warrant, pointing to flaws in crucial witness testimony. Hours later, despite the attention the case had drawn from authorities, police say Reed again went looking for Mathaddues Rozier, barging Tuesday evening into the Southeast Baltimore rowhome of Rozier's father, 79. Reed fatally shot the elderly man in his chair, authorities say. The younger Rozier was upstairs when his father was killed.

A 33-year-old Washington-area man accused of shaking one of his infant twin daughters to death in Columbia 2 1/2 years ago pleaded guilty yesterday to manslaughter and faces a possible six-year prison term. Rodney C. Rozier's plea was part of an agreement with prosecutors, who said yesterday that they plan to cap their request for prison time at six years - manslaughter carries a maximum 10-year penalty - and to drop the more serious charge of second-degree murder, as well as three related charges, at his sentencing Feb. 6. "This has been a difficult decision for Mr. Rozier to make," Assistant Public Defender Janette DeBoissiere, who represents the Capitol Heights man, told Howard Circuit Judge Dennis M. Sweeney.

It was a case that sparked public outrage and finger-pointing among police and prosecutors - a 79-year-old man shot dead in his home and a 15-year-old boy gunned down on the street. Both victims died in a bizarre shooting rampage last month that police originally thought was the result of a drug dispute between two feuding men. Yesterday, the case took a stunning twist when murder and attempted-murder charges filed against one man were dropped and police linked the other man to both killings.

A 33-year-old Capitol Heights man convicted of shaking one of his infant twin daughters to death in their Columbia home nearly three years ago was sentenced yesterday to 18 months in jail. The sentence Howard County Circuit Judge Dennis M. Sweeney imposed on Rodney C. Rozier was less than the six years requested by prosecutors, who urged the stiffer term yesterday, saying 11-day-old Raven Rozier suffered a "horrible death." But Sweeney, who noted the baby's "very tragic" death, said he also considered Rozier's "otherwise very good track record" in making his decision.

CAMDEN, N.J. -- The news hit hard, even in this city where gunfire is hardly news at all: There was Mike Rozier, famous ex-football player and native son, standing on a drug corner last November at 3 a.m., big holes blown through his chest by a .357 Magnum, his life -- just like in the movies -- passing before his eyes.No one knows exactly what happened on that drug corner last November, only that, if choreographed, there'd be no "Chariots of Fire" music. There was an altercation. Somebody had a gun. Was it a drug deal gone bad or just a guy so messed up on booze and drugs that he opened fire on his friends?
