Man charged in wife's slaying


A 25-year-old northeast Baltimore man was to appear today at a bail review hearing in District Court on charges that he killed his wife by strangling her with a necktie.

City police said Robert Logan Jr., of the 5200 block of Bowley's Lane, was arrested inside his apartment about 8:30 a.m. yesterday by Northeastern District officers after he called police and said his wife had been killed.

Police found Logan's wife, Gwendolynn Ann, 30, dead in the apartment. A preliminary investigation indicated the woman had been strangled with a necktie.

At police headquarters, Logan was charged with first-degree murder and was taken to the Eastern District lockup, where he remained overnight pending the bail hearing today at the Eastside District Court.

Police said the killing appeared to be the result of an argument.
