Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Jury finds Army soldier guilty of killing his wife, a young private at Fort Meade

Recommended Posts


Army Sgt. Maliek Kearney has been found guilty in the killing three years ago of his wife, a 24-year-old private stationed at Fort Meade in Anne Arundel County.

Kearney, 37, was found guilty Thursday afternoon of the federal crime of crossing state lines to commit domestic violence resulting in a death. He could be sentenced to as much as life in federal prison.

The jury returned his guilty verdict Thursday afternoon in federal court in downtown Baltimore.

Anne Arundel County Police found his young wife shot to death in the bedroom of her Severn townhome in August 2015. Someone had shoved a revolver against Karlyn Ramirez’s body and fired three times: once into her side and twice into her chest.

Ramirez, an Army private stationed at Fort Meade, was found with her infant daughter beside her body. The child was unharmed.

During a two-week trial, federal prosecutors outlined a careful plan by Kearney to commit the killing, saying he became consumed with rage after Ramirez was unfaithful and asked him for a divorce.

Prosecutors say he drove from Fort Jackson in South Carolina, shot Ramirez to death, placed their child beside her dead body, then drove back to attend work the next day.

His accomplice and mistress, Dolores Delgado, 33, of Florida, pleaded guilty last year to the same federal crime of crossing state lines to commit domestic violence in a death. She testified as a government witness during Kearney’s trial, telling jurors she supplied Kearney with her car and gun, then burned his clothes and dumped the revolver off a fishing pier in Florida.
