The state medical examiner's office says the co-owner of a Timonium printing firm who was found dead Tuesday morning died of strangulation and also received a blunt-force injury to the head.
No arrest has been made in the case and Baltimore County police say they still don't have a motive for the slaying.
The victim, Lewellen Maesenior, 35, who with her husband, Michael, operated the Print Shop in the 2000 block of York Road, was found dead in a rear room of the firm after county firefighters broke into the building when co-workers were unable to open the front door.
Police said Maesenior, of the 2700 block of W. Strathmore Ave. in northwest Baltimore, was pregnant with her first child. They said her husband was on a business trip in Ohio when she was killed.
