An Annapolis man, who was free for months while waiting to learn if murder charges against him would go to a trial or be dismissed, was arrested yesterday when he arrived in court for an unrelated drug case that had been postponed. Terrence Tolbert, who is charged in the high-profile 2002 carjacking-murder of a businessman two blocks from the State House in Annapolis, was taken into custody in an Anne Arundel County Circuit courtroom. The arrest came as county prosecutors were waiting for another judge to respond to their request to jail Tolbert in the newly revived murder case, according to a spokeswoman for prosecutors.

Eric Tirado, convicted of the March 1990 murder of a state trooper, "is not a monster who came out of the swamp" but "a human being with people who love him," his lawyer argued yesterday.Tirado, who faces the death penalty for the slaying of Cpl. Theodore D. Wolf, "was a regular kid who graduated from high school and had loving parents and a decent home," attorney Mark Van Bavel told a Howard County Circuit Court jury that will decide his client's fate.What the jury saw during the trial was "a horrible incident of his life -- a fleeting second and snapshot that no one can ever make go away," Mr. Van Bavel said, painting Tirado as a person who had been living a normal life that suddenly turned sour.

Though several ticking clocks continually mark the minutes and chime the hours at the Antique Clock and Watch Shop in Ellicott City, this crowded, parts-strewn shop seems like a place that time has forgotten. Owner Charles Sink has no computers in the space he shares with his English Lab, Princess. He doesn't have a cash register and accepts only cash for his work. But he offers customers old-fashioned attention to detail and a skill set that is as anachronistic as rotary telephones and rabbit ears on televisions - the ability to repair old-fashioned clocks and watches, the ones that rely on balance wheels and pendulums, not batteries.
