Man charged in baby’s death
Police have charged a Columbia man with murder in the death of his girlfriend”s infant daughter, after forensic tests showed that she received the fatal injuries when he was alone with the girl.
Tyrone Mosley, 28, was charged Monday with first-degree murder and child abuse in the death of 7-month-old Isabella Nacola Bland, Baltimore County police said.
A few days before her death in April 2006, authorities responded to a Catonsville home and found the infant suffering from head bruises, dilated pupils and retinal hemorrhaging, police said.
Isabella died April 29, 2006. The state medical examiner ruled it a homicide the next day. Forensic tests determined that the child suffered fatal injuries in the 30 minutes she was alone with Mr. Mosley.
Mr. Mosley was arrested Sunday after the forensic test results came back, and interviews with the child”s mother and uncle were conducted.
Rape suspect was on parole
The Hagerstown man charged last week in the abduction and rape last month of an 11-year-old girl had been paroled three years ago after more than 17 years in prison.
Authorities said James Hackey, 39, was sentenced in 1987 to 41 years in prison for 10 counts of burglary and violating probation.
Hackey faces 17 criminal charges in the abduction including kidnapping and two counts of rape. He was detained last week as a suspected peeping Tom at the Oak Ridge Apartments, the same complex where the girl was abducted from her ground-floor room. Investigators said the girl was raped at a nearby basketball court.
