Life without parole for 2 in Md. slaying

TOWSON — Two men have been sentenced to life without the possibility of parole in the fatal shooting of a teenager outside an upscale department store at a Baltimore County mall.

Forty-five-year old William Ward III and 32-year-old Frank Williams were sentenced Friday in Baltimore County Circuit Court. They were convicted last month of first-degree murder in the slaying of 19-year-old Rodney Pridget outside a Nordstrom store at the Towson Town Center in December.

Prosecutors said the two and others conspired against Pridget because of a role they claimed he had taken in a robbery and shooting of Williams’ cousin earlier.
