For years, Chuck Poehlman couldn't imagine anything less than an execution for the man who sexually assaulted and strangled his 17-year-old daughter after hiring her to baby-sit his nephew. Even after the convicted killer's death sentence was overturned, Poehlman was adamant that prosecutors ought to pursue the death penalty the second time around. But the Carroll County man has relented, finally signing off this year on a plea agreement designed to end the years of roller coaster-like appeals that so many victims' families experience in capital cases while also ensuring that a murderer will spend most, and perhaps all, of his life behind bars.

Potential baby-sitting horror stories are not hard to come by: The stranger who appeared at a playground looking for baby sitters and asked two teens for their phone numbers.The baby sitter who posted her name and phone number and received a call from someone who had no children.These situations may turn out to be innocuous -- that stranger at the playground could be a new neighbor. But other situations could be fraught with risk. Who knows what could have happened had the baby sitter been lured to the childless home.

Once again, the murderer was in the spotlight. The prosecutors and victims' advocates had warned Chuck Poehlman that this would happen, that some days it would seem as if his teen-age daughter had been forgotten, that people cared only about her killer. He knew that other victims' families, faced with a court ruling that overturned a death sentence, had asked prosecutors to avoid another capital trial and instead agree to a plea. And after he learned Thursday that the Maryland Court of Appeals had set aside the death sentence for the killer of 17-year-old Shen Poehlman, he knew people might wonder whether he would do the same.
