Prison For Life

December 24, 1914

Oscar Dorsey, Colored, Convicted of Murder at Ellicott City

Oscar Dorsey, colored, who was on Tuesday last found guilty of the murder of Joseph Baker, a farmer, of Highland, Howard County, on the night of October 24, 1914, was on Monday sentenced to the Penitentiary for the period of his natural life by Judge William H. Forsythe, at Ellicott City.

Prior to sentencing Dorsey the court overruled a motion for a new trial, which was filed by Louis T. Clark, as counsel for the traverser, on the ground that the verdict as rendered was against the evidence and against the weight of the evidences.
