NORTH EAST -- A 52-year-old woman was found stabbed to death in her rural home early yesterday morning, and Maryland State Police investigators said they have no motive and no suspects in the slaying.

Beulah G. Honaker, of the 700 block of Bethel Church Road, was found in the living room by her boyfriend when he came home from work at 2 a.m., said Capt. Greg Shipley, state police spokesman.

Honaker, who was a maintenance worker at a truck stop, did not show up for work Tuesday night, Shipley said.

FREDERICK -- Biting a police dog in this Western Maryland city is now a crime.

Mayor Jim Grimes and city aldermen unanimously approved the measure recently. Harassing a police dog in Frederick carries a maximum penalty of $500 and 90 days' imprisonment. If a canine is injured, the penalties would increase to a maximum $1,000 fine and six months' imprisonment.

Police have long complained of people taunting or teasing the animals. But officials decided to pass the ordinance after a man partially bit off a police dog's ear.
