Local man charged with murder and assault

Local residents know that being accused of any type of major crime can have a devastating effect on someone's life. That individual is suddenly plunged into a legal struggle that could affect their freedom and their ability to pursue their dreams. According to recent reports, a Maryland man is now going through this precise situation and must now face first degree murder charges for a crime that took place in Prince George County back in 2015.

Prince George County authorities have announced that they have arrested and charged 23-year old Afolbi Ijaoba with a fatal shooting that occurred last year. The Springfield man is facing several felony charges including first degree murder and first and second degree assault. He is also facing several firearm charges. Mr. Ijaoba is being held by authorities at the Department of Corrections and is not eligible for bail.

According to authorities, the case began back in November of 2015 when police responded to a report of an automobile accident. When they arrived on the scene, police found the vehicle unoccupied. It was then determined that the driver was already taken by emergency medical personnel to a local hospital. Authorities then came to the conclusion that the driver had been shot while inside of his car and that the car accident occurred because of the victim's injuries.

Authorities have not indicated why they believe Mr. Ijaoba committed the crime or discussed any evidence that links him to the crime. However, any Maryland resident who has been accused of any felony crime may want to speak with a criminal defense attorney in order learn about the potential consequences they may be facing.
