A Maryland section article yesterday on the sentencing of the leader of a cocaine ring on charges including conspiracy to commit murder incorrectly stated that John Henry Smith was a witness to the killing of a Pimlico man.

According to a statement of facts in the federal case, two gang members testified that Smith was shot because he had evidence relating to the murder; however, there was no evidence that Smith actually had any knowledge of the crime.

The Sun regrets the errors.
