December 17, 2010 — A Baltimore landlord has been jailed for failing to comply with repeated orders to fix lead-paint risks in all his rental units.

Cephus Murrell was ordered Wednesday by Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge W. Michel Pierson to be held in the detention center until he had either remediated three rental units with lead-based paint in them or relocated the tenants to safer housing.
