ROCKVILLE – A man and woman each face up to 30 years in prison after the Circuit Court jury found them both guilty of second-degree murder of the woman’s husband, State’s Attorney spokesperson Ramon Korionoff said Friday.

The jury spent more than 11 hours over two days discussing the case, Korionoff said. The pair’s sentencing date is July 25.

Takoma Park Police arrested Larlane Pannell-Brown, age 70, and Hussain Ali Zadeh, 50, in June 2015 for the murder of Cecil Brown, Panell-Brown’s husband, according to court documents. The arrests followed a months-long investigation after police found Brown dead in the woman’s backyard in August 2014.

ROCKVILLE – A district court judge on Friday ruled that a Silver Spring man will remain without bond on the charge of murder.

Montgomery County Police investigators arrested 19-year-old Tysean Aaaron Lipford of 13th Street, Silver Spring, Thursday in connection with the murder of 17-year-old Christian Leroy Matthews, his girlfriend’s brother.

District Court Judge James Sarsfield said during the hearing that the man will remain in jail without bond, based on police reports that Lipford confessed to killing Matthews and the fact that the maximum penalty for murder is life in prison. He said he was concerned about the likelihood that Lipford would flee based on the penalty he could later receive.
