Indictment for man in Upper Marlboro murder

On October 20, 2015, a resident of Upper Marlboro, Maryland was found murdered in her home. The cause of the death was determined to be trauma to the body, according to local authorities, although autopsy results have not been released. The news devastated the community, who thought of the woman as a matriarch for her role in running an informal day care center in her home for neighbors and friends.

Residents may find some relief however, as a man was recently indicted in the woman's murder. He was also charged with first degree burglary and carrying of a dangerous weapon with intent to injure, according to the Prince George County State Attorney.

It is believed that the 59-year-old suspect had a previous relationship with the victim which ended approximately a year ago, and that she may have been targeted after he learned of her new relationship. An arraignment has been set for January 8, 2015 (sic). He is being held in custody at the Prince George County Department of Corrections.

For anyone facing violent crime charges such as armed robbery, rape or murder, or even a non-violent felony such as fraud or embezzlement, it is crucial that the defendant make every effort to protect his or her rights. It may be wise to find a law firm familiar with criminal law for representation in an effort to obtain a more favorable outcome. It could make the difference between a conviction with lifelong consequences or an acquittal or lesser sentence.
