Va. police arrest man tied to county slaying

A man was arrested yesterday in Virginia in connection with the October stabbing death of a Baltimore County man, Virginia Beach Police Department officials said.

Marcus Conaway, 22, also known as Nick Barnes, who listed addresses in Baltimore and Virginia, was arrested about 8:10 a.m. in the 3800 block of Tiffany Lane in Virginia Beach, police there said.

According to Baltimore County police, William Jerome Green III, 19, of the 3600 block of Rockdale Terrace, was stabbed at Liberty and Old Court roads about 8:50 p.m. Oct. 12. He died about a week later from his injuries.

Stephan High, 22, of the 3000 block of Garrison Blvd., was arrested in November and charged with first-degree murder in Green's stabbing, Baltimore County police said.

Police said Green was mistakenly believed to have been in a confrontation with one of High's friends.

Conaway is being held at the Virginia Beach Correctional Facility on a fugitive warrant pending extradition, Virginia Beach police said.

The body of a 68-year-old woman who had been missing since early Tuesday was found floating yesterday afternoon at a Middle River marina near her home, Baltimore County police said.

Shortly before 4 p.m., county officers responded to Riley's Marina in the 1900 block Old Eastern Ave. and recovered the body, which was taken to the state medical examiner's office for an autopsy. Police said there was no obvious sign of foul play.
