Man to be tried in Pa. for body found in Md.

A man who had been charged in Baltimore County with murder in the death of another man whose body was found in the northern part of the county will be tried in Pennsylvania, authorities said yesterday.

Justin Anthony Glover Jr., who had been arrested and charged in the county in the death of a man whose burned body was found along a highway last year, is one of two people awaiting trial on first-degree murder charges in Pennsylvania in the killing, according to a Dauphin County, Pa., prosecutor.

They are charged in the death of Wesley Person, 26, of Harrisburg, Pa., whose body was found early Christmas Eve near Interstate 83, between Middletown and Mount Carmel roads. County firefighters and police went to the location about 1:30 a.m. that day for what was thought to be a brush fire and found Person's burned body.

Glover, 25, also of Harrisburg, was arrested and charged in the death in March. A police investigation had determined that Glover was involved in a bank loan scheme with the victim, court records show.

Charges in Baltimore County against Glover were dropped last week, and he was held on a warrant from Pennsylvania, records show. It is believed that Person was killed in Pennsylvania, said Francis T. Chardo, Dauphin County first assistant district attorney.

Lawrence Murrell, of Brooklyn, N.Y., is also charged with murder in Person's death, Chardo said. Both suspects were being held without bond.
