2 men charged in killing over snack money

Prince George's County police have arrested two men in the 2010 killing of a Suitland man who sold snacks from his home.

Jeffrey Allen Cutler Jr., 26, of Capitol Heights, and Houston Donald Washington, 27, of the District, were charged with first-degree murder in the death of Antwann Tirelle Massey.

Massey was found fatally shot at his home on the 3800 block of Regency Parkway in Suitland in the early morning hours of July 31, 2010.

Police said Massey was killed over the money he earned for selling the snacks.

Cutler and Washington demanded money from Massey, and Washington shot Massey multiple times, police said.

Laurel police to wear cameras on sunglasses

Laurel police officers will start wearing small video cameras on their sunglass or headgear to record interactions with citizens and help resolve disputes over facts, reports WJZ-TV.

Police Chief Richard McLaughlin tells the Baltimore CBS affiliate that the cameras are already used for training, and he wants to use them when officers execute search warrants and other operations.

David Rocah of the American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland says having proof of what happened in police interactions can be useful to protect the officers and citizens.

Monster hits back over Md. teenager's death

Monster Beverage is hitting back at a lawsuit alleging its energy drinks were responsible for the death of a 14-year-old Hagerstown girl, saying that no blood test was performed to confirm that the girl died of "caffeine toxicity."

In an interview with the Associated Press, Monster's lawyer Daniel Callahan said the company-hired physicians found that Anais Fournier likely died of natural causes brought on by her pre-existing heart conditions.

Fournier's family said the girl went into cardiac arrest after drinking two, 24-ounce cans of Monster drinks over two days.
