Man held without bail in fatal stabbing
Baltimore police say a man found dead Sunday in a Southwest Baltimore building was stabbed by a fellow employee after he "disrespected him," court records show. Police were called to the 200 block of W. Dickman St. about 6:20 a.m. for a report of a body found in an Allied Waste facility. Kendrick L. Daney, 38, had been stabbed multiple times and was pronounced dead at Maryland Shock Trauma Center, police said. Detectives retrieved a time sheet for the facility that indicated only Daney and Franklin Harrell, 51, of Parkville were present that morning, charging documents show. Detective Joshua Ellsworth contacted Harrell by cell phone. Harrell indicated he had been "disrespected," records show, and turned himself in. He was ordered held without bail yesterday.
Plea deal frees teacher sentenced in child abuse
A former Howard County high school teacher sentenced last year to four years in prison for undressing a student and photographing him naked was ordered freed yesterday as part of a plea agreement in a related case.
