Police charge man in Sept. 5 homicide


Baltimore police arrested and charged a man yesterday who was wanted in connection with a homicide in September in Northwest Baltimore, a police spokeswoman said.

William Lindsay Beverley, 35, of the 300 block of S. Fremont Ave. faces first-degree murder and first- and second-degree assault charges in the death of Walter Emory Bedford, 50, of the 500 block of Linwood Ave., said Officer Nicole Monroe. Bedford's body was found Sept. 5 in a house in the 1700 block of Union Ave., Monroe said.

Beverley was arrested this week during an appearance in traffic court on an unrelated charge, Monroe said. A search yesterday of Beverley's home yielded about three pounds of suspected marijuana, cash and a 12-gauge shotgun, Monroe said.
