The Cumberland Times News reports the Maryland Court of Special Appeals has decided it can make a decision on the  Megan Virginia Shaffer v. State of Maryland case without a hearing. Shaffer, 22, of Ridgeley, West Virginia, was charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter and assisting another to commit or attempt to commit suicide in the death of Alexander Stevens, 24, of Frostburg. Stevens was found dead at the bottom of a cliff known as High Rock, within the Savage River State Forest in Garrett County near Pine Swamp Road, on Jan. 4, 2017. A jury on March 19, 2018, found her guilty of second-degree murder. Nadine Maeser, public information officer for the Maryland courts, government relations and public affairs division in Annapolis, on Friday said the case will be reviewed on Oct. 11.
