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 jury found a Silver Spring man guilty of nine counts of sexual abusing his ex-girlfriend’s daughter Aug. 18.

“This case is about a 12-year-old girl who was asleep in her bed, who was brutally and repeatedly raped by someone she considered a father or at the very least, a step-father,” said prosecutor Elizabeth Haynos.

According to police, 35-year-old Kester Cuthbert raped and sexually abused his victim during the course of two years from January 2013 to January 2015.

He is due back in court in October for sentencing and faces a maximum of 190 years in prison.
