Jury convicts two Baltimore men in stabbing death last January

A 36-year-old Baltimore man has been convicted of murder and his 38-year-old co-defendant has been convicted of assault in a stabbing death last January, prosecutors said.

Police found Darrell Webb, 22, stabbed multiple times in an East Baltimore alley on the afternoon of Jan. 29. Webb, of Dunbar-Broadway, died of his wounds at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Surveillance video and witness accounts led police to Jermaine Doggett and Randy Case, of Bolton Hill and Remington, respectively. Prosecutors say Doggett and Case punched and kicked Webb. Then Doggett pulled out a knife, they said, and stabbed Webb.

Both men were tried last week in Baltimore Circuit Court. Jurors found them guilty Wednesday.

Doggett faces as much as life in prison for murder. Case faces as much as 25 years for assault. Both men are scheduled for sentencing March 8.

“This was a brutal and senseless act of violence,” Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby said in a statement. “No dispute should ever result in anyone taking the life of another.”
