Five people have been charged with murder in connection with a deadly drug-related home invasion robbery Tuesday in Cecil County. The suspects include an Aberdeen man who is in critical condition after exchanging gunfire with the victim of the home invasion, who later died, according to the Cecil County sheriff's office. Deputies say Kenneth Lee Curry, 19, was targeted because the suspects believed his North East home contained drugs and money. He was shot inside his home in the botched robbery and later died, according to the Cecil Whig. One of the suspects, William L. Dodson, 21, of Rosedale, allegedly bought illegal drugs at the home, then texted the other suspects, who came in and ordered everyone in the home to get on the floor. The other suspects are identified as Tabitha C. Nelson, 23, of the 100 block of Hollis Circle in Elkton; Angela L. Williams, 22, of the 100 block of Harmony Chapel Road in Conowingo; and Devon T. Ellwood, 18, of the 200 block of Mackall Street in Elkton.

The top deputy in the Baltimore prosecutor's office is in line to become a Maryland federal judge after President Barack Obama formally nominated him for the job Wednesday. The nominee, George J. Hazel, 38, was hired to join Gregg L. Bernstein's team shortly after his election as state's attorney in 2010.
