Jamal Leon Jenkins, 37, was the victim of a homicide in Edgewood on Sept. 2, the result of a domestic dispute in which he tried to intervene, according to police.
Harford County sheriff's deputies determined there was an argument between Jenkins' fiancée's daughter and her boyfriend, Gary Charles Clayton III, 25. When Jenkins tried to intervene, Clayton allegedly strangled him.
Clayton was indicted Sept. 20 on charges of first-degree murder and second-degree assault. He remains in jail with a trial scheduled for Feb. 27.
Gang members charged in shooting
Christopher Curtis Alves, 21, was found shot to death in a car in the 1300 block of Harford Square Drive, O Court, on Dec. 8, police said.
The next day, three people were arrested, two of them charged in connection with the murder. Police identified the three as members of the gang World's Most Dangerous, or WMD, but no motive was given in the preliminary investigation.
Joseph Andrew Nelson, 20, of Edgewood, and Coty Lamonte Wilson, 21, of Fallston, were charged with the murder of Alves. They are in jail awaiting trial.
No determination yet
Police say a man died in Edgewood Nov. 22 after he entered a home uninvited. His death remains under investigation.
Joseph Augustine Breckenridge, 53, of the 2000 block of Rockwell Street, entered a home on the same block, according to investigators. A woman who was inside the home went next door to get her husband.
When the husband and a neighbor asked Breckenridge to leave and he refused, a struggle ensued. When sheriff's deputies arrived at the scene in response to a 9-1-1 call, they found Breckenridge unconscious. He died at a local hospital a short time later.
Monica Worrell, spokeswoman for the Harford County Sheriff's Office, said investigators still haven't received results back from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner on a cause of death in the Breckenridge case.
