20 February 2019 :
A Jury unanimously recommended death for Michael Anthony Gordon. Gordon, 39, Black, was found guilty last week in the stabbing deaths of Patricia Moran, 72, and her 51-year-old daughter, Deborah Royal, on Jan. 15, 2015 during a home invasion. Circuit Judge Jalal Harb read the jury’s decision. The final decision on sentencing rests with Harb, who must, however, give the recommendation great weight in making his decision. No sentencing date was set Monday, but Harb scheduled a status hearing for April 26.
