Man charged with murder released on bail

From the Baltimore Sun:
The family of a slain Severn man expressed shock after a judge set bail and freed the man charged in his killing, infuriating prosecutors who said they weren't notified until after the fact.

'We're scared — he's still out there,' said Hilda Chan, 38, whose brother was shot Aug. 6. 'To us, [the suspect] is a very dangerous person. He is not afraid to kill,' she said.

On Aug. 17, police arrested James William King, 26, of Severn in the shooting of Calvin Chi Man Yeung, 40, who suffered a bullet wound in the upper body while sitting in his car at a traffic signal on Telegraph Road and Route 100. When King was arrested, police said he may have been motivated by road rage.

King, who has an extensive record of traffic violations and has also been prosecuted for drug offenses, trespassing, theft and burglary, was released from the Jennifer Road Detention Center Friday after posting bond, according to electronic court records.
