November 25, 1991|By Richard Irwin | Richard Irwin,Evening Sun Staff

Baltimore County police say a 22-year-old Edgemere man, charged with the first-degree murder of a Sparrows Point woman over the weekend, was to appear at a bail review hearing today in District Court.

Police said Edmund C. Grams, whose street address was not available, was arrested before noon Friday at a home in the 4000 block of Beech Drive in Middle River.

Grams, police said, was taken into custody nearly two hours after the discovery of the nearly nude body of Ruth Ann Collinsworth, 21, of the 2600 block of Masseth Ave. The body was found about 10 a.m. Friday in high brush and weeds behind Jerry's Tavern in the 2100 block of Sparrows Point Road.

Police said Collinsworth apparently died from multiple blows to the upper body with an unidentified blunt object.

After interviewing several people who frequented the tavern and the area surrounding the murder scene, police went to the Beech Drive home and arrested Grams.

Since his arrest, Grams has been held at the North Point District station without bail pending today's bail review hearing.

Police said they had no motive in the slaying.
