    Unbelievably sick! The victim was stabbed in Maryland and driven to WV (about an hour and a half drive) still alive and then stabbed again and set on fire. There are also two women missing from Carroll County, MD who have a connection to them.

    There is a link to another article in the article posted above. It is about 2 women with connection to the men arrested in this homicide that are missing.

    I cannot post a link from this tablet For some reason. There is quite a bit of info in that article if someone could link it.

    fourth arrest:

    A Westminster woman is charged with being an accessory before and after the fact involving murder — the fourth Carroll County resident to be charged in connection with the killing of Jonathan Riddle.

    Maryland State Police arrested Emily R. Day, 27, of the unit block of Charles Street, in Westminster on April 24, according to a news release from Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office in West Virginia. She is being held in Maryland, awaiting a court appearance to determine if she will waive extradition to West Virginia, the release states. She is being held without bond, online court records show.

    In murder case of Taneytown man, Westminster woman becomes 4th Carroll County resident to be charged

    In murder case, Westminster woman jailed in West Virginia; Westminster man opposing extradition, still in Virginia

    Three out of four people charged in connection with the killing of a Taneytown man are now in jails in West Virginia.

    Emily R. Day, 27, of Westminster, was transferred to Eastern Regional Jail on April 30 after being arrested in Maryland by state police April 24, online records show. She is being held without bond on charges of accessory to murder, before and after the fact, in the murder of Jonathan Riddle.

    Monroe Merrell, 22, of Westminster, faces charges of first-degree murder and kidnapping in the case of Riddle’s murder, but is being held at Virginia Beach Correctional Center.

    “[Merrell] has had several court appearances and has so far refused to waive extradition and remains in jail there,” a May 3 news release from Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office states.

    Police expect a governor’s extradition warrant to be presented to Virginia authorities to compel Merrell’s return to Jefferson County if he does not waive extradition prior of May 18, when he is expected to face his next court appearance, the release reads.

    Taneytown resident John Black III, 22, has been charged with first-degree murder, kidnapping, and conspiring to commit first-degree murder. He is being held without bond in Eastern Regional Jail, online records indicate.

    Westminster resident David Sanford Jr., 26, is being held without bond at Potomac Highlands Regional Jail in West Virginia for first-degree murder and kidnapping.

    “This investigation is not completed and we continue to pursue and follow up information that may lead to additional arrests in this case," Jefferson County Sheriff Pete Dougherty said in Sunday’s news release.
