After murder acquittal, jury convicts man in separate shooting

Baltimore man cleared of murder now faces life in prison after being convited in separate non-fatal shooting.

A 21-year-old Baltimore man acquitted of murder last summer now faces life in prison after being convicted of a separate non-fatal shooting last week.

Marlo Lomax has been detained since being arrested in July 2015 for the fatal shooting of Jaswinder Singh, a 26-year-old who was delivering food in the 4800 block of Alhambra Ave. Police said at the time that patrol officers were given a description of the suspect's vehicle, and Lomax was found and arrested.

Police and prosecutors went on to charge Lomax in an additional robbery committed that same day Singh was killed, as well as a non-fatal shooting that occurred five days earlier.

At trial in June, Lomax was acquitted by a jury of all charges in connection with Singh's murder. But on Friday Lomax was convicted by a jury for the attempted murder, conspiracy to murder and related charges.

Lomax is scheduled to go on trial Friday for the other armed robbery.

Lomax had been previously charged with attempted murder in 2014, but prosecutors dropped all charges three months after filing the case.
