Have unwanted medications? Go to drop-off sites.


Of Bethesda, MD died October 27, 2011 at age 77. Beloved wife of the Honorable John H.

She served as a longtime choral director at churches and schools in the Washington area. Friends and relatives may call on Sunday, October 30, 3 to 5 p.m. at the Robert A. Pumphrey Funeral Home, 7557 Wisconsin Ave., Bethesda. A memorial service will be held Tuesday, November 1, 10:30 a.m. at St. Alban's Church, 3001 Wisconsin Ave., NW, Washington.

People will be able to drop off expired, unused and unwanted medications on Saturday at sites across the region. Many police departments, as well as some other government agencies, will be collecting the drugs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. as part of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s third national Take Back Initiative. The drop-offs, which are free and anonymous, are part of the DEA’s effort to curb prescription drug abuse by encouraging the safe disposal of medications. About 7 million Americans 12

and older abused prescription drugs in 2009, a 13 percent increase from the year before, according to the National Drug Intelligence Center. In the Baltimore-Washington area, prescription drug abuse has become a particular problem among teens and young adults, according to the center. The DEA collected 18,537 pounds of prescription and overthe-counter medications in the Washington region in April during the last disposal event, according to Ava A. Cooper-Davis, who oversees the DEA’s operations in the District, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia.

Lucille Baur, a Montgomery County police spokeswoman, said demand during the April disposal event prompted the department to increase the number of dropoff sites from two to six. Prince George’s County police reported that they collected more than 109 pounds of medication during the April event; Alexandria police said they collected 122 pounds of medication. Thirteen disposal sites will be in the District. Dozens of sites will be in suburban Maryland and Virginia, too. To find local collection sites, visit the DEA’s Web site. Cooper-Davis said that people came to events on the last drop-

off day with “bags full of prescription drugs.” The two ways people most often dispose of prescription drugs — in the trash or down the toilet — present major problems, Cooper-Davis said. Drug users sometimes search through piles of garbage for disposed drugs. Meanwhile, drugs flushed down the toilet pose environmental risks to the water supply and the Potomac River. “If you have to dispose of drugs, we recommend mixing them with coffee grounds or cat litter before throwing them away,” she said.

Two years have passed, and there are tears of remembrance for you still. You touched the lives of all who knew and loved you. No longer in our life to share, you are sadly missed along its way. But you are not forgotten and never will be. Bob, Robbie & Niki

D.C. man charged in slaying of Howard U. student


Prince George’s County police have charged a District man in connection with Tuesday’s fatal shooting of a Howard University freshman in Mount Rainier, authorities said. William Knight, 20, is charged with first-degree murder in the slaying of 24-year-old Alonzo James Guyton, a freshman music major who was found just after midnight fatally wounded in front of an apartment building in

the 4200 block of Kaywood Drive. Police said Knight and possibly others shot the Howard student in the head and back, although they are still exploring why. Julie Parker, a county police spokeswoman, said detectives were tipped to Knight’s involvement after they found his handprint on a stolen vehicle near the crime scene. She said they searched Knight’s home Thursday and recovered what they think is the assault rifle used in the attack.

Parker said Knight initially was held in the District on an outstanding auto theft warrant, and he is awaiting extradition to Maryland. The case shocked Guyton’s friends, family and the Howard community. The former Marine was interested in drums and keyboards. Parker said it did not appear that Guyton knew Knight and said Guyton “may have struggled with his attacker.” Mount Rainier Police Chief

Michael Scott said previously that the attack appeared to be a robbery, if only because Guyton did not have his wallet when officers found him. Online court records show Knight has been charged several times previously with armed robbery and carjacking. He was convicted of robbery in Montgomery County in June 2010 and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle in Prince George’s in April 2010.

19 years ago on this sad day the one we loved was called away. Your memory is as dear today as in the hour you passed away. We love you and miss you more than words can express. Your Wife Louise; sons George, Jr. and Kevin; daughters Veronica and Ethel and grandchildren

Debate on sex-selective abortion would be new in Richmond
abortion from B1 constitutional because a woman does not have to provide a reason for an abortion, said Devins, the abortion law expert. But Lena Edlund, a Columbia University economist involved in the 2008 study, thinks a symbolic gesture would be worthwhile. “Abortion based on the child’s gender is considered anathema to most Westerners,” she said. “We have not had to really enunciate this because it’s been shared as a core value. We are now in a situation [because of immigration] where it’s not a shared value. . . . It’s not so much whether this can be enforced. I think this is about sending a signal about what society thinks is okay.” In the Northern Virginia district that Minchew wants to represent in the General Assembly, some experts say a ban could appeal to middle-of-the-road voters: those who believe abortion should be available to someone unprepared to have a child, but not someone who’d simply prefer having one of the opposite sex. But even Minchew does not appear confident that the ban would have wide appeal in a swing district that covers parts of Loudoun, Frederick and Clarke counties. He highlighted his opposition to abortion in two mailings, one four pages long, sent over the summer to likely Republican primary voters. In one, he promised to “outlaw ‘sex selection’ abortions.” “I believe that protecting the life of the innocent may well be the most important function of government — and that includes the unborn,” a mailing read. “Life is a gift from God, and as your Delegate I will do everything I can to protect the life of the unborn.” Now, before the general election, Minchew is reluctant to discuss abortion generally or sex-selective abortion in particular. Pressed to elaborate on the sexselection issue he’d raised in his mailing, Minchew said, “I don’t support the concept of using abortion to determine the sexual makeup of your children.” “I think Mr. Butler would probably agree,” he added, referring to his Democratic opponent. Said Butler, “I don’t know anyone who supports abortion for sex selection.” But Butler is not seconding Minchew’s call for a ban. Describing his abortion position as “okay with the status quo,” Butler called the sex-selection issue a “red herring.” A ban in Virginia, he said, would probably apply to an “infinitesimal number of people.” “That’s a problem in China,” Butler said. “I don’t know that it’s a problem at all in Virginia.”

big difference. In Maryland, premeditated murder carries the possibility of life with no parole. Second-degree murder carries a maximum of 30 years in prison with a chance for release after 15 years. Douglas Wood, Norwood’s attorney, was able to establish that within six to nine minutes of the initial sounds, the Apple employees didn’t hear anything else from next door. But under Maryland law, prosecutors don’t have to establish a drawn-out planning phase for premeditated murder. It can be as short as a few seconds. Wood also highlighted the fact that the Apple employees did not intervene, apparently to bolster his point that the attack was quick. While cross-examining Rios, a senior manager, Wood recalled a conversation that Rios had early in the case with Detective Deana Mackie. “I think you told Detective Mackie you just thought it was some drama going on?” Wood asked. “Correct,” Rios said. Wood also pushed Svrzo, suggesting the fact that she didn’t go check out the yoga store was an indication she didn’t hear anything that needed checking out. “If someone had yelled out ‘Help!’ you would have gone to help, right?” “It’s hard to say what I would

have done,” Svrzo said. Neither Svrzo nor Rios would comment after their testimony. Svrzo said that the voice that said, “God help me,” was different than the one that said, “Talk to me. Don’t do this.” Svrzo and others closed the Apple store about 9:30 p.m. Shortly after 10 p.m., she said, she heard noise on the other side of the wall. It sounded like something heavy was being hit or dragged, she testified. There was some grunting and high-pitched squealing. She went upstairs to ask Rios to come down and listen. Together, they walked closer to the wall. “We heard some screaming and yelling,” Svrzo said. “It sounded like a female voice that was, it sounded like hysterical noises, and then followed by a different female voice that was saying, ‘Talk to me. Don’t do this. Talk to me. What’s going on?’ ” Rios’s memories weren’t as vivid. He heard a loud yell, he testified. He heard a voice say something to the effect of “What’s going on? Why won’t you tell me?” Then he heard a second, softer voice. “All I heard was kind of like crying and muffled,” Rios said. Under questioning from prosecutor Marybeth Ayres, Rios said a store security guard was wearing headphones. “He was inattentive to the situation,” Rios said.
