Back in 1992, Jim and Toni Johns purchased a split-level home in Columbia. What they really wanted was an American Colonial design, more in keeping with their love of the period and all that evokes a Williamsburg feel. But they settled on the split-level for two reasons: They loved the street name - Keepsake Way - and, more importantly, the fact that the home was built on beautifully wooded property abutting 400 acres of state-owned parkland that would never be developed. And so it was settled.

When 302 Glenrae Drive in the heart of Old Catonsville went on the market March 27, 2013, it didn't remain there long. Only three days, in fact. The Bob & Ronna Team of Long & Foster Realtors brought a potential buyer to see the home on that very day, and a bid was placed immediately. "Not only that, it listed and sold at the same price — $425, 000," Ronna Corman-Chew said. "This is an incredible, completely remodeled three-bed and two-bath split-level with a retro flair," Bob Chew said.

Lewin Carlton Powell III is an honor student who played in the jazz band at McDonogh School. Neighbors in Towson's Riderwood community saw the 16-year-old boy as responsible and polite. His mother, Donna Rosemarie Campbell-Powell, worked for the county, and colleagues said she spoke proudly of her son. But a man who lived next door said their relationship was sometimes tense. And on Tuesday afternoon, the teenager would later tell police, a quarrel about the teenager's grades spiraled to the point that he reached for a baseball bat. He told investigators that he beat his mother to death, then hid her body.
