A Baltimore woman, one of 70 members of the Salisbury-based 115th Military Police Battalion scheduled to leave yesterday morning, never arrived at Parkville Armory.

Four hours before she was to depart for Fort Stewart, Ga., Telayia T. Marshall, 25, was killed in a car crash that occurred during a dispute with her husband, police said.

Marshall, of the 5900 block of Daywalt Ave., was arguing with her husband, Leroy, 26, inside a car near Charles and Mulberry streets about 2:30 a.m., according to reports.

Agent Angelique Cook-Hayes, a police spokeswoman, said witness noticed a woman struggling inside a 1994 Ford Taurus.

Police said that when Marshall attempted to get out of the car, her husband grabbed her around the neck, pulled her back into the car and sped off at high speed.

The car traveled for three blocks and then flipped, rolling several times, between Charles and St. Paul streets. Telayia Marshall was thrown from the car and died shortly thereafter.

Leroy Marshall was charged with negligent manslaughter, second-degree assault and false imprisonment, police said.
