November 19, 1990

One of the two men charged with the slaying of a Maryland state policeman was returned to Maryland from New York yesterday, police said.

Eric Tirado, one of the suspects in the March 29 murder of Cpl. Ted Wolf, was taken to the Howard County jail by police cruiser after his afternoon arrival at Martin State Airport, police said.

Chuck Jackson, a state police spokesman, said he did not know when Mr. Tirado would make his first court appearance.

Corporal Wolf was found shot to death and slumped over in the seat of his cruiser on Interstate 95 in Howard County.

Mr. Tirado and Francisco Rodriguez were charged with first-degree murder April 12. They were being held in a Bronx jail on unrelated weapons charges at the time of their arrest, Mr. Jackson said. Mr. Tirado was 26 at the time of his arrest and Mr. Rodriguez was 20, police said.

Mr. Rodriguez was sent to a prison in Virginia on drug charges, Mr. Jackson said.
