MARYLAND

Homicide probe: Prince George's County police are investigating the apparent homicide of a man whose body was found in his Camp Springs home yesterday.

Investigators were awaiting the results of an autopsy on Darnell Morris, 55, whose body was found in his home in the 3900 block of Bedford Way. Cpl. Diane Richardson, a police spokeswoman, said a co-worker went to Morris's home about 7:30 a.m. yesterday to give him a ride to work.

After getting no response, the man became worried, went inside and found Morris's body.

Richardson said that there were no signs of forced entry and that it appeared nothing had been stolen.

She did not elaborate on why the death appeared to be a homicide.

Police had no suspects or motives, Richardson said.

Parents seek fees: Attorneys for the parents of a baby missing since 1997 asked the federal government yesterday for $7 million to cover their legal fees.

A federal judge in Tampa is hearing arguments to decide the amount the government owes Steven and Marlene Aisenberg, who now live in Bethesda, for the blundered criminal investigation into the disappearance of their 5-month-old daughter, Sabrina.

The federal government agreed to pay their legal fees last year.

Sabrina Aisenberg disappeared Nov. 24, 1997, from the family's home in Valrico, Fla.

Soon afterward, Hillsborough County sheriff's investigators who suspected the couple had abused Sabrina received permission from a judge to put listening devices in the Aisenbergs' kitchen and bathroom. Two years later, a grand jury indicted the Aisenbergs on charges of conspiracy and making false statements.

In February 2001, a federal judge in Florida officially dismissed the case against the Aisenbergs.
