ATLANTA (AP) -- Police searched Ray Lewis' home in Maryland today as the All-Pro linebacker remained in an Atlanta jail facing murder charges.
Lewis' personal attorney, Ronald M. Cherry, said he could not comment on what police were looking for or what was confiscated from the home in Owings Mills, in suburban Baltimore.
The officers from Atlanta and Baltimore County arrived at the home around midnight and spent about three hours there, Cherry said. They could be seen carrying large plastic containers and loading a computer into a van.
Lewis, a Baltimore Ravens star who grew up in Lakeland, Fla., is charged in the Jan. 31 stabbing deaths of Jacinth ''Shorty'' Baker, 21, and Richard Lollar, 24, outside a bar after a post-Super Bowl party. He is being held without bond pending a Feb. 14 hearing.
Lewis' mother, grandmother and fiancee visited him in jail Sunday, and other relatives and friends have come to his defense.
''No way, no way on this earth that Ray would ... use a knife to take somebody's life,'' Lewis' grandfather, Gillis McKinney, told ESPN on Sunday.
