The shootings that claimed three lives in North Baltimore's Waverly neighborhood two weeks ago were motivated by revenge for a double killing a week earlier in the same community, city police said yesterday. Otis Edwards III, 25, who was charged Tuesday in the Feb. 24 killings, is the brother of Dontai Edwards, 21, one of the victims in the Feb. 18 shootings. Agent Angelique Cook-Hayes, a city police spokeswoman, said investigators believe that Otis Edwards' motive was retaliation. The reason his younger brother was killed remains unknown, police said.

The debaters -- two women who have battled for years and have absolutely no love for each other, either personally or politically -- were more polite than the audience.Above the grumblings, mumblings, whoops and misplaced laughter of a small crowd at the University of Baltimore, Phyllis Schlafly, the conservative anti-feminist vehemently opposed to abortion, squared off against Sara Weddington, the lawyer who argued the landmark Roe vs. Wade abortion case before the Supreme Court 18 years ago.Yet even Mrs. Schlafly and Ms. Weddington conceded that the crowd last night at the University of Baltimore was fairly well behaved, compared to most audiences they have encountered in a series of debates.

Washington -- On the issue of abortion, there is perhaps only one point upon which they agree:They both believe Roe vs. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that gave women a Constitutional right to abortion, will soon be undone by the Supreme Court.That, of course, is where any similarities end between Sarah Weddington, the attorney who argued for that right before the Supreme Court 18 years ago, and anti-feminist leader Phyllis Schlafly, a fierce opponent of abortion rights."We don't much care for one another," says Ms. Weddington, who will share the stage with Mrs. Schlafly tomorrow night at the University of Baltimore for a debate on the issue.

When Tonya Lucas goes on trial today charged in the deaths of six of her children, Eugene Weddington will be waiting to take the stand as a key prosecution witness.Mr. Weddington is the unidentified witness who authorities have claimed will say that Ms. Lucas, a welfare recipient who was facing eviction, set her East Eager Street rowhouse on fire July 7 so the Red Cross would provide her family with clothing, furniture and new housing, individuals familiar with the case said.The Northeast Baltimore man's testimony is considered damning enough that prosecutors have hidden him away for the past month in the wake of alleged threats from Ms. Lucas' family.

Waverly Apartment residents said yesterday they are terrified by the violence that has claimed five lives in the past week, and some fear the most recent weekend killings might not be the end of the carnage. Though many in Waverly speculate that last weekend's shootings were retaliation for two killings in the area six days before, police did not reveal a definite motive in the shootings. Maj. Robert Biemiller, commander of the Northern District, said drugs "might be the motive" for the "outlandish" incidents.
