Abstract (Document Summary)

The Court of Special Appeals has sent the case back to Baltimore for a new trial, ruling that [Kevin L. Jones] was improperly required to take the witness stand for his co-defendant in the robbery and murder of the Rev. Lewis F. Ransom, former pastor of Towson United Methodist Church.

Jones and Timothy Rogers, 25, were tried together about a year later and convicted. Rogers, whose conviction was upheld two years ago, is serving life plus 20 years. Jones was sentenced to 30 years.

During the trial, Saul E. Kerpelman, Rogers' lawyer, called Jones as a witness for Rogers. On the advice of his lawyer, Jones refused to answer all the questions put to him, invoking his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.
