Gambrills man may be charged in auto fatality

January 10, 1994

A 19-year-old Gambrills man has been charged with stealing a car a week ago and may be charged with unintentionally striking and killing his brother with the vehicle, Anne Arundel County police said.

Justin Paul Remines, of the 2500 block of Davidsonville Road, was charged Saturday with stealing a 1986 Chevrolet Camaro on Jan. 1.

His brother, Joseph William Remines, a 13-year-old Crofton Middle School student, was driving a minibike about 8:30 p.m. Jan. 2 on Bottner Road west of Route 424 in Gambrills when he was struck by the Camaro. He died the next day at the Children's National Medical Center in Washington.

Police found the car abandoned on Bottner Road minutes after the accident. The car, which had been reported stolen the previous day, was unregistered and had been stripped of most of its interior equipment.

Police said their investigation determined that Mr. Remines unintentionally struck his brother while he was attempting to abandon the car. The case was under review by the county state's attorney.

Mr. Remines was being held in the county detention center on $13,000 bond.
