CENTREVILLE -- A day care provider whose license was suspended after two infants died while in her care in May has appealed the decision, state officials said.

Stacey Russum of Stevensville filed the appeal Wednesday, and an administrative judge will hear the case within 90 days, said Elyn Garrett-Jones, spokeswoman for Maryland Department of Human Resources.

Matthew Harrison and Ian W. Denny, both 5 months old, died after being put down for their naps on an adult bed. The state medical examiner's office ruled that a quilt used to keep the babies from rolling out of bed fell over their faces and suffocated them.

HAVRE DE GRACE -- The Harford County Joint Narcotics Task Force has charged three Havre de Grace residents with possession and intent to distribute cocaine.

Sally Alicia Vega, 36, Davis Tellado, 25, and Jorge Ortiz, 31, all of the 300 block of Wilson St., were arrested July 29. According to police, 1 pound of crack cocaine, valued at $16,000, as well as $3,000 in cash were seized.

The task force, made up of several Harford County law enforcement agencies, reported that the arrests came out of a yearlong drug investigation.
