An inmate at the Baltimore City Jail has been charged with being the gunman in the Feb. 20 shooting death of a statecorrectional officer.
James Edward Simms, 26, was arrested at the jail over the weekend, where he was being held on unrelated charges.
He was charged with first-degree murder and a handgun violation in the slaying of Theresa Katrina Johnson, 41, of 3600 block of Gwynn Oak Ave.
Johnson, an officer at the Diagnostic and Reception Center in Baltimore, was still in full uniform on the morning she was shot to death as she entered the front gate of her home. She had worked the night shift and had just returned from taking her granddaughter to school.
