    Arrest Made in 4-Year-Old Cold Case

    Updated: Thursday, 08 Oct 2009, 6:35 PM EDT

    BOWIE, Md. - Prince George's County Police say they have closed a 4-year-old cold case with the arrest of a Riverdale man.

    McDonald Abraham, 25, has been charged with the murder of Stacey Seaton, a teenager found shot to death in a park near her home.

    A court affidavit says McDonald wanted Seaton dead because he believed she was behind the theft of drugs and money from his apartment.

    Stacey Seaton was pregnant when she was killed in broad daylight on June 1, 2005. She was shot once in the back of the head.
    For nearly four years, police worked this case but didn't have enough evidence until last April, when a third witness came forward to point the finger at McDonald Abraham.

    From February 2011:


    Abraham pleaded guilty in the June 1, 2005 killing of Stacey Seaton, who was 17. Seaton was shot in the back of the head on a winding path in a wooded area about 200 yards from her home in a quiet upper-middle class Bowie neighborhood...

    Within a few days of Abraham's guilty plea, authorities arrested a second suspect, Jarvis D. Tyler...

    According to police charging documents in support of Tyler's arrest, on Jan. 12 -- the day of Abraham's guilty plea -- an unnamed co-defendant told police that he agreed to pay Tyler $600 to kill Seaton.
    From March 2012:


    Macdonald Abraham... was sentenced Friday to 15 years in prison followed by five years of supervised probation for second-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder after cooperating with prosecutors.

    The man charged with killing a Bowie teenager in what prosecutors said was a misguided, murder-for-hire scheme in 2005 was acquitted of every count against him Thursday, authorities said.

    Jarvis Tyler, 26, had been charged with first-degree murder and other related counts in the June 2005 slaying of 17-year-old Stacey Seaton, who was pregnant and 18 days away from her 18th birthday....
