Grand jury indicts man, girl in couple's deaths

A Carroll grand jury yesterday returned a 10-count indictment against a 19-year-old man and a 17-year-old girl accused of fatally stabbing his mother and the mother's companion last month.

The indictment charges Jason Aaron DeLong of Westminster and Sara E. Citroni of Reisterstown with two counts each of first-degree murder, first-degree murder in the course of robbery, conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, and one count each of conspiracy to rob with a deadly weapon, robbery with a deadly weapon, theft and robbery.

The pair allegedly stabbed Mr. DeLong's mother, Cathryn Brace Farrar, a 39-year-old nurse's aide, and her 35-year-old companion, George William Wahl, to death in late July.

The bodies were found Aug. 2 in Ms. Farrar's Westminster apartment after neighbors complained of an odor.

Mr. DeLong and Ms. Citroni were arrested a few days later in Florida and extradited to Maryland.

The teen-agers are both being held without bail in the Carroll County Detention Center.
