Md. inmate pleads guilty to third killing
A former Baltimore resident already serving life in prison for two separate murders has pleaded guilty to a third slaying in a three-week span.
Prosecutors say 26-year-old Lamont Harrell was linked to the March 4, 2007 shooting death of 22-year-old Anthony Brown through DNA collected from the crime scene.
Harrell had already pleaded guilty to the Feb. 20, 2007 slaying of Andre Jones and the killing of Allen Coates on March 10 of that year.
The documents show no apparent connection between the killings, but in the cases of Brown and Coates, Harrell was one of two masked gunmen who approached the victims and fired several shots.
Harrell pleaded guilty last week in the Brown slaying and received a life sentence with all but 60 years suspended.
