Three Washington lawyers have been recommended to become the newest D.C. Superior Court magistrate judge.
The court’s Committee on the Selection and Tenure of Magistrate Judges identified criminal and civil litigation defense attorney Diane Lepley, Assistant Attorney General Shelly Mulkey and Adrienne Noti, child support policy attorney with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
The magistrate judge opening was created by the October retirement of Magistrate Judge Andrea L. Harnett. Lee F. Satterfield, the court’s chief judge, will determine Harnett’s replacement.

Prince George’s County police say a Greenbelt man has been arrested in connection with the death of a Landover woman.
Tor Campbell, 39, faces first-degree murder charges, police say.
Police found Shauntelle Marie Lewis, 36, “suffering from trauma” in her home on the 6800 block of West Forest Road around 9:10 a.m. Monday, authorities said. Police said they were called to the home after one of Lewis’s relatives called authorities.
Police indicated through Twitter that Lewis’s death may be domestic-related, which would make seven of the county’s 10 homicides this month tied to domestic issues.
County officials are expected to release more details about Campbell’s arrest at a news conference Tuesday afternoon.

Some passengers on the Red and Orange lines will wait longer for trains this weekend.
Metro track work will affect the two lines between 10 p.m. Friday and the rail system’s midnight closing Sunday. All stations will be open but the schedules on the Orange and Red lines will be adjusted because trains will share single tracks around work zones.
Crews on the Red Line will work on track insulators and the railroad ties and fasteners between Takoma and Forest Glen. The agency will undergo testing of new rail cars between Twinbrook and Shady Grove. Trains will run every 20 minutes between Shady Grove and Glenmont; more trains will be in service between Grosvenor and NoMa-Gallaudet from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. During those hours, trains should arrive every 10 minutes.
If traveling between Fort Totten and downtown Washington, consider using the Green or Yellow lines.
Between West Falls Church and Vienna, crews on the Orange Line will work on track insulators and the railroad ties and fasteners. All along the line, trains are scheduled to reach the platform every 20 minutes throughout the weekend.
