HAGERSTOWN - Two brothers charged with second-degree murder in the April death of their father, who died as a result of what investigators alleged was neglect, were scheduled to appear Thursday morning in Washington County Circuit Court. Kenneth Allen Record, 62, and Gerald Wolford Record, 46, did not appear for the arraignment, however, because attorneys have filed paperwork indicating the men are represented. A January 2008 trial date has been set for the case. The men were being held Thursday at the Washington County Detention Center, each on $750,000 bond, a jail spokeswoman said.
