Two witnesses for Pfc. Bradley Manning described a chaotic work environment with lax supervision as the defense presented its case Wednesday for the former security analyst charged with turning over classified documents to WikiLeaks. Both witnesses worked with Manning in Iraq. They testified to an office environment where those working with classified information listened to music, watched movies and played computer games in the secured areas. The lawyers defending Manning rested their case after calling the two witnesses; they had requested nearly three dozen others but the court would not allow the testimony.

Jailed and awaiting trial on armed robbery and attempted murder charges, a 19-year-old Middle River man is facing new charges that he arranged to have two witnesses in that case killed. Joshua Anthony Mumford was arrested Monday night and charged with two counts of soliciting first-degree murder, court records show. Police persuaded Mumford's cellmate at the Baltimore County Detention Center to wear a digital recording device, which captured Mumford refusing suggestions that the witnesses could be kidnapped and held for a while rather than killed, according to court documents.

WASHINGTON -- The sentencing trial of Zacarias Moussaoui was supposed to have been the government's best opportunity to hold someone accountable for the deaths on Sept. 11, 2001. But after federal prosecutors finished laying out their case this week, even those who strongly supported an aggressive prosecution may wonder whether the trial has shed as much light on Moussaoui's culpability as it has on the missteps and mistakes by law enforcement agencies. The testimony of two prosecution witnesses, in particular, has brought renewed and unwelcome attention to how the FBI dealt with early warning signs.

A Baltimore man recently acquitted of state murder charges was indicted in federal court yesterday in what prosecutors say was a murder-for-hire scheme targeting a 10-year-old girl. Prosecutors say DeAndre Whitehead, 20, tried to contract a hit on the girl and her mother, who were the only witnesses in the shooting death last year of Russell Peterson, the girl's father and woman's husband. The indictments come almost four months after a Baltimore jury acquitted Whitehead of Peterson's murder - a verdict that state prosecutors and the dead man's family described as devastating and dangerous.

Nathan A. Chapman's defense team has apparently decided not to put the Baltimore investment banker on the stand as it winds up its case in his marathon federal fraud trial. The decision comes in spite of a ruling yesterday by U.S. District Judge William D. Quarles that essentially told Chapman's lawyers they could raise a key line of defense only by letting their client testify. After a day of testimony that left both sides' mathematical skills in question, Chapman attorney William R. "Billy" Martin told Quarles the defense would wrap up its case today with testimony from two witnesses -- neither of them Chapman.

A Baltimore jury acquitted a 22-year-old man yesterday in a case that exemplifies how extreme witness problems can undermine murder prosecutions in the city. Keko O. Worrell of the 1300 block of N. Caroline St. was on trial in the killing last August of Michael Lockett, 16, who was shot three times in the back in an East Baltimore parking lot as he was riding a bicycle. City prosecutor Gerald Volatile began the trial Tuesday with three witnesses - two of whom had been arrested for being uncooperative and were under court supervision.
