Annapolis man indicted in slaying

January 24, 1995

An Anne Arundel grand jury indicted a 30-year-old Annapolis man yesterday in the slaying last month of a woman who was stabbed 20 times and dumped in the woods on the outskirts of Annapolis.

Richard Edward Janey, 30, whose last known address was the 100 block of Obery Court in Annapolis, is charged in the Dec. 27 death of Susan McAteer, 32, of the first block of Southgate Ave. in Annapolis.

The victim's body was found near the woods in the 300 block of Dubois Road.

Wanda Rebecca Hall, 31, who has no fixed address, has been charged with being an accessory to murder.

Ms. Hall told police she watched Mr. Janey stab the victim and helped him take Ms. McAteer's body to the woods, according to charging documents.

Mr. Janey is being held without bail, and Ms. Hall is being held on $50,000 bail.

The grand jury also indicted two men and two women on charges of trying to bring 160 pounds of marijuana into Maryland, said State's Attorney Frank R. Weathersbee.

Mr. Weathersbee said the defendants were accused of carrying four suitcases, each containing 45 pounds of marijuana, into Baltimore-Washington International Airport Nov. 18. The drugs had an estimated street value of $160,000, he said.

Lutrica Lopez, 19, of Philadelphia, Tony Lindo, 24, of Brooklyn, N.Y., Rowan Berry, 30, of Queens, N.Y., and Bridgette Anderson, 25, of Philadelphia were indicted on charges of possession with intent to distribute marijuana and transporting drugs into Maryland.

The county grand jury also indicted a Georgia man on drug charges after 6 pounds of cocaine, worth an estimated $300,000, were seized in a Hanover motel room.

Charles Harris, 24, of Decatur, Ga., was indicted on charges of possession with intent to distribute cocaine and transporting drugs into Maryland after police found the drugs at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel in the 7400 block of Ridge Road on Dec. 28, Mr. Weathersbee said.
