A 20-year-old man was charged yesterday with the murder of his estranged pregnant wife, Montgomery County police said.
Raul Machado of Glen Burnie has been charged in a warrant with first-degree murder in the death of Maria Elizabeth Rodriquez, 20. Ms. Rodriquez was shot twice in the head Thursday afternoon at a house in Wheaton.
Police said that they were seeking Mr. Machado in the Baltimore area and that he was considered armed and dangerous.
A full-term baby that was delivered from Ms. Rodriquez by Cesarean section died last night at Children's National Medical Center in Washington.
