LAUREL, MD. — A teen who had lived at Sparrows Point and in Laurel was murdered during what police say was an illegal transaction was awaiting trial after being indicted on five violent crime counts.
Mirroring an execution style slaying in Montgomery Village in Montgomery County, Md., which has become popular with teenage killers, investigators will likely close this homicide investigation.
