A man charged with murdering his girlfriend in Essex may be charged in a second killing in Baltimore City, police said.
Baltimore County police said Terrence L. Jenkins, 49, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Shelly Fillion, who was found Monday at her house on Skipjack Court in Essex.
Police said Fillion had suffered traumatic injuries. Police on Monday did not specify a motive, but quickly identified a suspect in the case.
A break in the case came Thursday when police received a tip that someone saw Jenkins making a phone call from a house in the 3600 block of Pulaski Highway in east Baltimore.
County police set up surveillance across the street from the house at a motel, and while doing so, officers watched Jenkins walk up to one of the houses, where a woman let him in.
"We did not know what his connection was to that house, if anything. We suspected that perhaps someone was harboring him there," Baltimore County police spokeswoman Elise Armacost said.
While Jenkins was inside the house, police said detectives found a Ford Explorer that belonged to Fillion.
Police waited for Jenkins to exit, and when he did, they gave chase.
