A 27-year-old Silver Spring man convicted in the death of a 3-year-old girl was sentenced yesterday to 40 years in prison, the maximum for involuntary manslaughter and child abuse resulting in death. Erik Stoddard's first two convictions in the case were overturned by an appeals court and a Baltimore Circuit judge. In May, a Baltimore jury convicted Stoddard, formerly of the 2500 block of Moore Ave. in Baltimore, for the third time. Baltimore Circuit Judge Kaye Allison sentenced Stoddard to 10 years on the manslaughter charge and 30 years on the child abuse charge.

Fearless. Focused. Driven. Jamie Stoddard was determined to excel, whether pitching for Arundel High or leading troops into combat. He reveled in rivalry, be it clearing out caves in Afghanistan or competing with soldiers in a footrace. Stoddard's life in the Army formed a bridge between the military and sports. For the Crofton native, there was little difference between them. He played football on rocky ground that bordered minefields. He practiced wrestling in preparation for fighting the Taliban.

A 27-year-old Baltimore man was convicted yesterday of involuntary manslaughter and child abuse in the death of a 3-year-old girl. Erik Stoddard of the 2500 block of Moore Ave. had been convicted twice before in the death Calen Faith Dirubbo, but those verdicts were overturned by a Baltimore Circuit Court judge and an appeals court. Calen, who was the daughter of Stoddard's girlfriend, died in June 2002 as a result of multiple beatings over a period of at least a month, prosecutors said.

A Baltimore man was indicted yesterday for first-degree murder and child abuse in the beating death last month of the 3-year-old daughter of his girlfriend. Erik Stoddard, 21, of the 2500 block of Moore Ave. was indicted in the killing of Calen Faith Dirubbo. Stoddard lived at that address with the girl and her mother, Cheryl Dieter-Dirubbo. He was also indicted yesterday in an unrelated case of two counts of second-degree assault. Stoddard is accused of assaulting two women in a house in the 6900 block of Harford Road in November, authorities say. He is scheduled to be arraigned Aug. 23 before Circuit Judge Clifton J. Gordy.

A 21-year-old man was convicted of murder yesterday in Baltimore Circuit Court for beating to death his girlfriend's 3-year-old daughter as he tried to potty train her over a span of several months. "This was a lot more horrendous than a typical beating case," said prosecutor Julie Drake, chief of the Felony Family Violence Division in the state's attorney's office. "I found this case really shocking and upsetting." The jury heard four days of testimony and deliberated for less than one hour before convicting Erik Stoddard of second-degree murder and child abuse in the death of Calen Faith Dirubbo.

It was a typical Baltimore jury - racially mixed, men and women, younger and older. All 12 jurors had sworn that they would listen to the evidence in a child-abuse homicide case and make a fair decision. They listened to about a week of testimony, and on March 9, they reached their verdict: Erik Stoddard was guilty of second-degree murder. He was later sentenced to 60 years in prison. But this week, the judge in the case ordered a new trial, saying he should have asked jurors during the selection process whether they had any racial prejudice against the defendant.

The state's highest court threw out yesterday the conviction of a man in the beating death of his girlfriend's 3-year-old daughter, ruling that the trial judge erred by allowing into evidence a statement by an 18-month-old child who did not take the witness stand. The Court of Appeals found that the child's "utterance" recounted in court by her mother was hearsay and that the unintended implications of the statement could have swayed the jury in its decision. With few exceptions, witnesses cannot testify as to statements made by another person.

In a light but steady rain, 12 members of Sgt. 1st Class James Stoddard Jr.'s battalion stood at attention as his coffin was transported from a hearse to the vestibule of St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church in Odenton. With bagpipes sounding, two soldiers removed the flag that had been draped over the simple casket, folded it in the customary triangular fashion and saluted. Stoddard, 29, of Crofton, was killed Sept. 30 while serving in Afghanistan after his Humvee rolled into a ditch. His death came during a third tour of duty after deployments in Afghanistan and Iraq, and just over a year after his father, James Stoddard Sr., was memorialized and buried at the same parish in June 2004.

A man who was charged in the beating death of his 3-year-old stepdaughter was released yesterday from Central Booking and Intake Center after another suspect was charged in the girl's death. Nicholas Dieter, 21, of Forest Hill, Harford County, walked out of Central Booking after the city state's attorney's office dropped first-degree murder charges against him in the death of Calen Faith Dirubbo of the 2500 block of Moore Ave. The girl died Sunday night in her home. The state medical examiner's office ruled the death a homicide after an autopsy Monday.

An Anne Arundel County grand jury has indicted an Annapolis homebuilder on charges that he stole $63,000 from a deaf, elderly couple by not building the house they contracted with him to build. The indictment is the second in recent months against Herbert Lincoln Wellander, 44, of the 1400 block of Middletown Road in Annapolis. He was indicted in April on charges that he stole $4,500 from another elderly couple by not following through on a contract to custom-build a house for them. In both cases, the houses were to be in the Mission Valley area, and both couples' complaints stem from contracts signed last year, said Assistant State's Attorney Clifford C. Stoddard.

The war on terror has brought with it a new awareness of surveillance of all kinds, from the wall-mounted video cameras that routinely scan airport waiting rooms and train stations to the high-tech reconnaissance satellites that can read a license plate from 150 miles up. Perhaps it's not surprising, then, that contemporary artists have become aware of surveillance photography as a distinct set of formal practices and conventions of visual representation, much...
