Attorney Warren A. Brown's ex-wife killed

Prominent local defense attorney Warren A. Brown's ex-wife was killed over the weekend in Prince George's County, the apparent victim of domestic violence. Donna Brown's boyfriend, Joseph Coleman, 44, of Forestville has been charged with her murder.
 
Prince George's County police said she had suffered from "apparent trauma to the upper body."
 
Warren Brown said he had to deliver the news to Donna Brown's 10-year-old son -- a boy he says he helped raise almost from birth. "It's something I've never had do do before, and something I never want to be a part of again," he said this afternoon.
 
Donna Brown, 40, of Pikesville, also had an older daughter who lives in California, Warren Brown said. The couple's four-year marriage ended in 2001, he said. Her family is arranging services.
