The 25-year-old Glen Burnie woman who was attacked, allegedly by a neighbor, as she was sunning herself by her backyard pool Sunday has died from her injuries, county police said yesterday.
Police have charged her alleged assailant with first-degree murder and a sex offense.
Kimberly Renee Reinhardt, of the 100 block of Queen Anne Road, was pronounced dead at 9:45 p.m. Wednesday at North Arundel Hospital, police said.
Miss Reinhardt was on life-support systems at the hospital after her neighbor held her underwater in her backyard pool and sexually assaulted her, police said.
Charles Leonard Adams Jr., 36, of the 100 block of Queen Anne Road, originally was charged with assault with intent to murder. Police got a warrant charging him with first-degree murder and a sex offense after Ms. Reinhardt died, investigators said.
District Judge Michael E. Loney released Mr. Adams Monday on a $50,000 signature bond and placed him on house arrest. On Tuesday, Mr. Adams father, Charles Adams Sr., who signed the bail release, asked that the bond be revoked. Police brought Mr. Adams to the detention center, where District Judge James W. Dryden ordered a psychiatric evaluation, police said.
Police said neighbors reported seeing Charles Adams Jr. throw Miss Reinhardt into the pool Sunday and jump in after her. They reported to police hearing her screams. Miss Reinhardt's mother told investigators she saw Mr. Adams holding her daughter's head underwater, police said.
Neighbors pulled Miss Reinhardt out of the water, police said.
