A Glen Burnie man was being held without bail in the county detention center today in connection with the weekend shooting death of his Baltimore girlfriend, county police said.

Corey Mark Green, 27, of the 800 block of Pamela Road was charged with first-degree murder and use of a handgun in the commission of a felony.

Latasha Lewis, 24, of the 2400 block of Bridgehampton Road was pronounced dead at the scene after police found her body in the woods along Hog Farm Road near Cecil Avenue in Millersville.

Police said a man and a woman were having an argument Saturday evening in a 1987 Chevrolet Nova while they were in Crofton. Police said the man pulled out a small automatic handgun and shot the woman once in the head.

The man then drove to a secluded area on Hog Farm Road near the campground and dumped the body in the woods near Cecil Avenue next to the roadside, police said.

The man went to a friend's house in the 600 block of Cecil Ave., where friends persuaded him to turn himself in. Officers got the call about 7 p.m., went to the house and arrested the man, police said.

The man told police where the body was, and officers found the weapon at another friend's, house also in the 600 block of Cecil Ave., police said.
