An Aberdeen man was arrested and charged yesterday with first-degree murder and assault in the death of a man found lying outside a convenience store last month.

Jeremiah Kirkland, 19, of the 100 block of S. Deen Ave. was arrested by Aberdeen Police Detective Donald Licato and charged with killing Stephen Eugene Heintz, 30, of Mount Royal Avenue in Aberdeen.

Kirkland is being held at the Harford County Processing Center pending a bail hearing today in District Court.

Heintz's body was found March 7 next to a trash container in the parking lot of a convenience store at West Belair and Mount Royal avenues.

The state medical examiner said Heintz died of blunt trauma injuries to the body.
