A 32-year-old Baltimore man has been charged in the June 20 stabbing death of his pregnant girlfriend in her Rosedale home.

Kenneth Walter Worrell III of the 5800 block of Lillyan Avenue, 21206, has been charged with first-degree murder and is held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

The victim, Summer Shemida Smith, 33, of the unit block of Travis Court, 21237, was nine months pregnant when she was killed. The Baltimore County State's Attorney will review this case to see if additional homicide charges are warranted for the death of the unborn child.

The victim was found by her mother, bloody and unconscious, in the basement of the Travis Court home at about 7:30 p.m. on June 20; Smith was pronounced dead at the scene by BCoFD EMS personnel. An autopsy by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner found that Smith suffered multiple injuries, including puncture wounds.

Detectives were able to link Worrell to the crime when DNA tests showed that blood stains on a bank receipt found in Worrell's car and dated the day of the murder belonged to Smith.

The Baltimore County Police Department celebrates National Volunteer Appreciation Week with a dinner for volunteers on April 10. The event will take place at the Baltimore Yacht Club, 800 Baltimore Yacht Club Road, Essex, 21221. The evening will begin with dinner and awards at 7 p.m.

This year’s theme, Making a World of Difference, is a perfect description of the many men and women who unselfishly give their time and talents to the Police Department. Last year our volunteers contributed over 23,000 hours of valuable time to the BCoPD.

Volunteers answer phones, handle clerical work and assist with statistical data, among other duties. Their participation allows officers to focus on patrol and investigation.

Expected to attend the dinner are more than 70 volunteers, County Executive Kevin Kamenetz, Chief James Johnson, members of the Executive Corps, and members of the Police Auxiliary Team.

National Volunteer Appreciation Week is April 6-12.
