A 19-year old Baltimore County man whose attorney said he was merely "along for the ride" last year when the robbery of a Howard County drug dealer led to murder was sentenced Friday to 43 years in prison. Daymar Wimbish of Owings Mills did not plan the robbery of Elijah Jackson in the parking lot of a Columbia apartment complex in May 2008 and didn't pull the trigger when one of Jackson's friends, Jason Batts, was shot to death as he tried to flee his sport utility vehicle. But Wimbish, convicted by a jury in Howard County Circuit Court in May, was sentenced by Judge Lenore Gelfman to 14 years on each of the two attempted robbery charges and five years each for three gun possession charges.

A 19-year-old Owings Mills gang member escaped a murder conviction for a shooting in Columbia last year but still could receive up to 55 years in prison after a Howard County jury found him guilty on five counts of armed robbery and weapons charges. Daymar Wimbish appeared pleased in the heavily guarded Ellicott City courtroom Wednesday as Judge Lenore Gelfman read the jury's verdicts on eight charges, reached after one day of deliberations. He was found not guilty of murder in the May 17, 2008, death of Jason P. Batts, 23, who was shot during a robbery attempt of Elijah Jackson, a passenger in Batts' SUV. Prosecutors Lisa Breton and Colleen McGuinn declined comment until after sentencing, which is scheduled for Sept.

Ethel C. Wimbish, a homemaker, active church member and former president of the national United Spanish-American War Veterans' women's auxiliary, died Thursday of congestive heart failure at Sinai Hospital. She was 95 and lived in West Baltimore. Born Ethel Coles in Pittsburgh, she was raised on East 28th Street in Waverly. She graduated from Frederick Douglass High School and attended what is now Hampton University in Hampton, Va. Because her father, Peter F. Coles, served in the Spanish-American War, she joined the auxiliary as one of its few black members.

SALISBURY -- Through nine games, freshman Daron Wimbish had led Salisbury State in rushing, all-purpose yards and scoring, and ranked second in total offense. He also was its third-leading receiver and a prolific kickoff returner, but he wasn't in uniform yesterday for his team's biggest game.Wimbish didn't dress because of a violation of team rules, costing the Sea Gulls a valuable commodity -- and perhaps a chance for victory in the Eastern College Athletic Conference Division III Southwest Region championship.

On a Friday afternoon last May, according to prosecutors, a Baltimore County teenager headed from his home in Pikesville to Columbia, where his car was needed by fellow members of the Bloods gang "to do some business." A local drug dealer named Elijah Jackson had been targeted for robbery. But as the 19-year-old, known to the Bloods as "NY," started driving toward Howard County, he realized that he needed someone more familiar with the route to get him there. So he called Daymar Wimbish, a friend and fellow Bloods member, to help navigate.

A jury will resume deliberating today the fate of a 19-year-old Owings Mills man accused of murder in what prosecutors called a gang-related killing in Columbia last year. Daymar Wimbish, the defendant, is an admitted Bloods gang member; his attorney argued he was merely present at a botched robbery attempt in the early hours of May 17, 2008, that ended in the shooting death of Jason Batts, 23. "The whole gang theme was a substitute for motive," Wimbish's attorney, Spencer Hecht, said in closing arguments to the jury on Tuesday.
