The trial will get under way this week for a D.C. police officer accused of fatally shooting a 20-year-old woman and leaving their 1-year-old child to die in a sweltering car.
A 12-year-old boy charged with second-degree murder in the death of a 2-year-old foster sibling was not the focus of detectives' investigation until he admitted to police to "play fighting" and striking the girl up to six times, a Prince George's County homicide detective said.
A 24-year-old man who pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of a University of Maryland student during a robbery last year was sentenced Wednesday to 49 years in prison.
Homicide Detective Denise Shapiro was interviewing the boy about the incidents of the day when he admitted to striking the girl, even demonstrating a punch that made an audible smack, said prosecutor Wesley Adams.
The boy then told his mother, "I didn't beat her like that," Mr. Adams said.
