Jones, whom he married in 1977.

A Howard County judge postponed the sentencing of a convicted murderer yesterday after an anonymous correspondent wrote him and a defense lawyer and claimed that the man was innocent.Circuit Judge Raymond J. Kane Jr. delayed the sentencing of Vernon Lee Clark until Oct. 10 to give the public defender's office time to investigate the letter writer's allegations.The writer claimed to be a witness with knowledge of the July 3, 1989, murder of a 23-year-old Elkridge woman."I am a person willing to step forward and admit that Vernon Lee Clark had no involvement in the murder," said the anonymous correspondent's handwritten letter to Barbara Matthews Kreinar, an assistant public defender representing Clark.

Nathaniel Hurt left court yesterday a free man while his five-year prison sentence is appealed, maintaining he was "not a villain" for killing a 13-year-old boy he called "a terror."But Baltimore Circuit Judge Ellen M. Heller said in sentencing him yesterday that while she sympathized with the plight of senior citizens living in crime-plagued communities, Hurt, 62, had no right to take the law into his own hands when he fired a .357-caliber Magnum at a crowd of teen-agers who had been vandalizing his car Oct. 10.Vernon Lee Holmes Jr., who Hurt said was among a group of youths who had harassed him for more than a month, was shot in the back.

Man who killed boy deserves no sympathyWe sympathize with Baltimoreans who face harassment caused by our out-of-control youth.However, for Nathaniel Hurt to imply he has no regrets for taking the life of a 13-year-old boy who threw rocks at his car is appalling ("Man charged in shooting of boy, 13, has no regrets," Oct. 16).Imagine if we all took someone's life each time we became frustrated and angry. We would live in fear each time we upset someone or rubbed them the wrong way.As responsible adults we must find ways to help our angry, out-of-control youth.
