2d Degree Murder Is Verdict In Md. Killing

Defendant Faces 5-18 Year Term: Decision Debated 7 Hrs. by Jury

By Eve Edstrom and Harrison Hagemeyer Siall Reporters

Vincent “Eddie” Marci- onette, the 16-year-old slayer of a University of Maryland student, early today was found guilty of second de- gree murder.

Prince Georges County Clr: cuit Court Jury brought in the verdict at 12:50 a. m. after de- liberating since 5:42 p. m. Tues- day with time out for lunch.

Marcionette faces a sentence of not less than five years nor more than 18 years.

Judge Charles Marbury de- ferred sentence until ‘a later time.”

Before Marcionetie was lied back to the Upper Mariboro jail his mother said, “Get some sleep, you're a big boy.”

His father said, “Don't worry.’

Under a point of law relative io self defense, Attorney Gwynn Bowie maintained that Marcionette could be “justified or excused” for plunging a stilettolike knife into the heart of 20-year-old Richard Gibson.
