Woman placed on probation in abductions

July 30, 1996

A woman was given a one-year suspended sentence and was placed on five years of supervised probation in Carroll County Circuit Court yesterday after pleading guilty to abducting her two children by taking them out of state without court approval.

Teresa Marie Muhl, 33, formerly of Taneytown, must comply with drug and alcohol evaluation and treatment, and submit to random testing, as ordered by Judge Raymond E. Beck Sr.

Muhl lives in Lansdowne, in Baltimore County.

Muhl was arrested with her husband, Raymond Vernon Muhl Jr., who is not the children's father, in Las Vegas Dec. 29, after Carroll County social-services officials reported the children, now 15 and 12, missing Dec. 13.

After being returned to Maryland, Muhl was charged with taking the children out of state without court permission.

The children have been placed in foster homes.


Taneytown: Firefighters from Harney assisted Taneytown at 6: 43 p.m. Friday, responding to a leaking propane tank in the 400 block of Taney Drive. Units were out 16 minutes.
