Man gets 2-year sentence for role in death last year

TOWSON -- Circuit Judge Alexander Wright Jr. sentenced a Middle River construction worker Friday to two years in prison for a reckless endangerment conviction in the death last year of a White Marsh man, said Assistant State's Attorney Stephen R. Roscher.

A jury convicted Gary Lee Fischer Sr., 45, of the 12000 block of Twin River Beach Road in July of the reckless endangerment charge, but acquitted him of murder in the death of Allen E. Ellis, 33.

Ellis' body was exhumed two months after he died of what his family believed were natural causes.
