Murder suspect offered 'not criminally responsible' plea deal

A man told a judge he intends to accept a plea deal in connection with the 2021 killings of his brother and his sister-in-law. Jeffrey Burnham, 48, of Cumberland, was taken from a state psychiatric hospital Thursday morning to Howard County Circuit Court for a status conference. Burnham was charged in Howard County with two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Brian and Kelly Robinette at their Ellicott City home.
