"Tattoo Bobby" Vizzini guilty Thursday of conspiracy to commit murder and told a judge it had not reached a verdict on charges of murder and using a handgun in a violent crime.Judge David Ross ordered the jurors to continue deliberating, but when they returned yesterday morning, a juror admitted reading a story about the case in The Sun. The article described Carozza's background and noted that he and Vizzini had previously been found guilty in the murder, only to have that conviction reversed on appeal.

Dominic J. "Crowbar" Carozza swallowed and muttered something to his lawyer.Other than that, the longtime crime figure from Albemarle Street didn't display much reaction when a jury found him guilty yesterday in the murder of a junkie who owed him money.His equally guilty co-defendant, Robert J. "Tattoo Bobby" Vizzini, didn't do much either. Just blinked and lowered his head for a second or two.And then they left the courtroom, Vizzini in handcuffs, Carozza in his wheelchair.On his way out, 60-year-old Carozza turned toward his sister and offered a look that seemed to say, "Can you believe this is happening again?"

ANNAPOLIS -- Prosecutors still haven't nailed a homicide conviction on Dominic J. "Crowbar" Carozza.The Court of Special Appeals has reversed the murder conviction of the longtime crime figure and former city public works supervisor and his co-defendant, Robert J. Vizzini, in an opinion that said his trial was tainted by a racial remark and hearsay evidence.Carozza, 60, and Mr. Vizzini, 27, were both sentenced to life in prison last April 25 for their convictions in the June 22, 1991, death of Russell Charles Baker, 42, a heroin addict who prosecutors said was killed over a $2,600 debt to Carozza.
