March 18, 2006|By ANNIE LINSKEY

The Millersville woman arrested this month after her boyfriend's body was found burning on the street near her home was indicted by a state grand jury on three counts of accessory to murder after the fact, according to the Anne Arundel County state's attorney's office.

Cynthia Jean McKay, 50, of the 200 block of Nathan Way is being held without bail at the Anne Arundel County detention center. She was arrested shortly after the burning body of Anthony Frank Fertitta, 50, of Baltimore was found by a police officer. Fertitta had been stabbed and possibly shot, police said.

Anne Arundel County police said they found a substance they believe is blood in McKay's home. McKay's son -- Matthew Joseph Haarhoff, who turned 18 yesterday, has been charged with first-degree murder in Fertitta's death, police said. Haarhoff is also being held without bail at the county jail.
