DUNDALK, Md. - A Dundalk man has been charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of a woman last month, Baltimore County police said.
Ronnie Lee Walden Jr., 42, is being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.
Police said they responded to an apartment in the 600 block of North Point Road after someone called 911 on April 27 to say they hadn’t seen Cecilia Alice Brown, 53, for two days.
When officers arrived at the apartment, the front door was locked. When they looked through a window, they saw an unresponsive person on the floor. She was later identified as Brown, and an autopsy revealed she died of asphyxiation and blunt force trauma.
Police said Walden also lived at the apartment. They believe that sometime between 2:30 a.m. on April 26 and the time police responded to the apartment, Brown and Walden got into a fight, and Walden killed Brown.
