Sentencing for 2 in Md. killing
A man and a teenager convicted in the slaying of a former Baltimore city councilman will be sentenced Tuesday.
Twenty-two-year-old Charles McGaney and 17-year-old Jerome Williams were convicted of first-degree murder and related counts in the 2008 shooting death of Kenneth Harris during a robbery at a northeast Baltimore jazz club.
Harris was shot as he fled the robbery and died after driving away from the scene.
Prosecutors are seeking life sentences for McGaney and Williams, who was 15 years old at the time of the shooting but was tried as an adult.
A third defendant, Gary Collins, was acquitted of murder but convicted of assault, handgun and robbery counts and will also be sentenced Tuesday. He won’t receive a life term but could get a decades-long sentence.
