Another prosecutor has resigned from the office of Howard County State's Attorney Marna McLendon, bringing to seven the number who have left since early last year.The office has 22 prosecutorial positions. Turnover in the state's attorney's office has been comparatively high during McLendon's nearly three-year tenure. Last year, a higher percentage of prosecutors in her office resigned than in state's attorney's offices in Baltimore, Anne Arundel or Harford counties.Ann Singleton, a prosecutor assigned to District Court, submitted her resignation about 10 days ago.A brief statement released by McLendon states that Singleton, 47, a former assistant state attorney general, has been a "tremendous asset" to the office, particularly in the area of drunken-driving and domestic violence cases.

As Howard County grand jurors today consider prosecuting four correctional officers accused of assaulting a former inmate while in jail, county officials are bickering over how the case got this far -- when they thought the matter had died in a deal with the inmate.The deal with former inmate Michael Alexander Saukas of Ellicott City appeared to be a simple compromise that would resolve possible legal actions stemming from a fight between the inmate and officers at the jail in February.But the deal went awry when Saukas devised a plan to get back at the officers because of the alleged brutality he suffered.

A Baltimore County jury took less than five hours yesterday to convict Baltimore police Sgt. James Allan Kulbicki of first-degree murder in the shooting death of a young woman who bore him a child during an adulterous, three-year affair.Kulbicki, apparently prepared for the worst, went back to hug his wife, Connie, their 9-year-old son, Allan, and his 18-year-old stepson, Darryl Marciszewski, as the crowded courtroom awaited the jury.The 37-year-old sergeant stood stoically as the verdict was delivered, but his wife, and the mother and sister of the victim, 22-year-old Gina Marie Nueslein, began to sob.Judge John Grason Turnbull II, who had called extra sheriff's deputies into the courtroom, immediately revoked Kulbicki's bail but said he would ask the Baltimore County Detention Center "to keep special watch on him" because he is a police officer and might be harmed by inmates.
