Getting away with murder in B'more

The Baltimore City Paper tells the story. Well, one guy did get 5 years.

Here's their first story.

Here's the concept:

The Murder Ink column in the print edition of City Paper tracks homicides in Baltimore, giving details on each murder in the city. But what becomes of those homicide cases after we've reported the murder? Recently, we started looking at old cases to see whether those arrested for murders were ever convicted of the crimes they were accused of committing. For most murder cases, that information is not reported in the press. So, starting with this post, we'll follow up on old homicide cases, beginning with murders in 2006, to see what happened.
