The classical Morrey spaces were introduced by Morrey in  to investigate the local behavior of solutions to second-order elliptic partial differential equations. The boundedness of the Hardy-Littlewood maximal operator, the singular integral operator, the fractional integral operator and the commutator of these operators in Morrey spaces have been studied by many authors; see [2–5] and the references therein. In , Komori and Shirai studied the boundedness of these operators in weighted spaces.
It is well known that the commutator is defined by , where T is a Calderón-Zygmund operator and . The commutator generated by the Calderón-Zygmund operators and a locally integrable function b can be regarded as a special case of the Toeplitz operator , where and are the Calderón-Zygmund operators or ±I (I is the identity operator), . When , Krantz and Li discussed the boundedness of on the homogeneous space, see [7, 8]. In , the authors studied the boundedness of in Morrey spaces. In this paper, we study the boundedness of Toeplitz-type operators related to singular integral operators with non-smooth kernels in weighted Morrey spaces.
- (i)There exists a class of operators with kernels , which satisfy the condition (2.3) in Section 2, so that the kernels of the operators satisfy the condition(1.1)
- (ii)There exists a class of operators with kernels , which satisfy the condition (2.3), such that have associated kernels and there exist positive constants , such that(1.2)
Note that the classes of operators and play the role of a generalized approximation to the identity. It is not difficult to check that conditions (1.1) and (1.2) are consequences of the standard Calderón-Zygmund operator. See Proposition 2 in .
The paper is organized as follows. In Section 2, we recall some important estimates on BMO functions, maximal functions and sharp maximal functions. In Section 3, we prove the main result.

It is proved in  that if T is an operator satisfying (a) and (b) above, then T is of weak and of strong type for . In addition, if (c) is also satisfied, the operator T is bounded on for all . Moreover, if , then T is bounded on (see ).
