…and someone did…Cops snare two in Duck In Murder
(Pocomoke City, MD) – Maryland State Police arrested two women in connection with the murder of a Worcester County man this Oct. 26, 2015, in Pocomoke City.
The accused is identified as Kaniesha Lachelle Johnson, 22, of 17 Bradley Court in Pocomoke City, Maryland. Kaniesha was arrested at a residence in the 100 block of South East Railroad Avenue in Hebron without incident this evening by the Maryland State Apprehension Team. She is charged with first and second-degree murder.
Kaniesha was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center for injuries that appeared to be sustained during the dispute at the convenient store. She was released from the hospital around 10:00 p.m. and will be transported to Wicomico County Detention Center to await an appearance before the Wicomico County Court Commissioner.
Kaneisha’s sister, Latoya Johnson, 30, of the 700 block of Dennis Street in Salisbury, has also been arrested without incident at her home. She is charged with first-degree assault and accessory after the fact of murder. Latoya also currently awaits an appearance before the Court Commissioner in Wicomico County.
The victim is identified as Derrick Collick, 25, of the 200 block of 10th Street, Pocomoke City, Md. Collick was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center with an apparent stab wound, where he later succumbed to his injuries. His body was transported to the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore for an autopsy.
Shortly after 1:00 p.m. Oct. 26, 2015, officers from the Pocomoke City Police Department responded to a 9-1-1 call reporting a domestic dispute at a gas pump, outside of the Duck In Convenience Store on Lynn Haven Drive in Pocomoke City. Responding officers found Collick, with what appeared to be a stab wound to his upper body.
The preliminary investigation indicates Collick was inside the convenient store at the time of the incident. Police believe he exited the store to help break up the domestic dispute at the gas pump when he was injured. Police also believe Collick knew the individuals involved in the dispute.

Additional assistance was provided by State Police Criminal Enforcement Division investigators, as well as the Worcester County Bureau of Investigation, the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office, the Worcester County State’s Attorney Office and the Pocomoke City Police Department.
