A Baltimore County jury this afternoon began deliberating the fate of James S. Tanner, 27, accused of fatally shooting a businessman during a home invasion in Granite in October. During the trial, which began last week, the jury watched a videotape of a police interrogation shortly after his arrest in the slaying of Lamont Kareen Blackston, 35. Police also arrested Tanner’s girlfriend and charged her with conspiracy to commit murder and with being an accessory after the fact.
Blackston owned a convenience store on North Avenue and was an assistant coach in the Charm City Buccaneers, part of a youth league in Baltimore. His home was on the 10200 block of Harrison Grant Drive, off Granite Road near the borders of Carroll, Howard and Baltimore counties.
