The start of filming on Hunting Humans, Glen Burnie filmmaker Kevin Kangas' debut as a director, was not filled with good omens. At the shoot, the Fire Department showed up outside the filming location - the Severna Park home of the leading man's parents - to check on a problem with a power line. Five minutes later, electricity went out in the neighborhood, leaving Kangas with no lights or equipment. "That was the first night," said Kangas, who would face similar debacles over the course of filming in the summer of 1999.

A 27-year-old Baltimore man pleaded guilty yesterday to choking a 32-year-old woman to death with a wire coat hanger. Joshua Rice of the 500 block of Yale Ave. was sentenced by a city Circuit Court judge to the maximum 30 years in prison for the second-degree murder of Jennifer Fishbach. Prosecutors said that a search of Maryland's DNA database linked Rice to the May 2004 killing of Fishbach, who was found in a second-floor bedroom of an abandoned rowhouse in the 1200 block of Bayard Ave. Fischbach was one of three prostitutes found dead on the city's west side from late 2003 through mid-2004.

"No Way to Treat a Lady," William Goldman's 1963 novel about a serial killer, might not sound like musical theater material. But the suspense story -- which was also the source of a 1968 movie starring Rod Steiger -- was turned into a musical comedy thriller by Douglas J. Cohen, and it makes its Maryland debut at Theatre on the Hill tomorrow. Josh Selzer directs a cast of four -- Liz Bennett, Ray Ficca, Julie Herber and Charlie Smith -- in this killer musical, which promises to lay 'em in the aisles.

I was not downtown during the recent disturbances, but I will take Del. Pat McDonough's word that the groups of young thugs were, in fact, black ("Baltimore and bigotry," May 18). Here is the point I want to make: The fact that they were black had nothing to do with their despicable behavior. In recent coverage of the meth lab bust, did anyone refer to the accused as a group of white drug peddlers? How about Oklahoma City bombers Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols, or serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, did their "whiteness" have something to do with their behavior?

Regarding your story about animal cruelty ("City man is charged with killing one cat and abusing another," Aug. 4), I'm an animal lover who had my 22-year-old cat euthanized three months ago and I'm still crying from the loss. I got her from an animal shelter when she was about six weeks old and she showed signs of abuse. It broke my heart to think that someone would harm a little kitten. I'm against places like PetSmart and other stores that sell pets. Even though they ask customers to complete an application before buying a pet, it's nothing like the background check a rescue organization requires.

Serial killer in Russia gets life term for 48 killings MOSCOW -- The Moscow City Court gave a life sentence yesterday to a serial killer who had said he wanted to be the most prolific murderer in post-Soviet Russian history. Alexander Y. Pichushkin, 33, was convicted last week of murdering 48 people and trying to kill three others. The total was considerably smaller than the number of killings he claimed. In a television interview, Pichushkin said he had killed at least 60 people, part of a bid to kill a person for each of the 64 squares on a chessboard.

HOUSTON - Law enforcement officials from across the South said yesterday that they were launching an investigation to determine whether a single killer was responsible for the deaths of at least seven women in the past eight months. The decision was announced after a closed meeting in Oklahoma City of more than 40 officers from 17 agencies. After detecting similarities in a number of the slayings, investigators from Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana and Tennessee met to compare notes and determine whether a serial killer could be stalking women in the region.
