Philip Min Hyang Cho (27), the step-son of the victim, has been charged with first-degree murder and is being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.
Police responded to an apartment that Cho lived in with his father and step-mother just after 1:30 a.m. Wednesday morning for a report of an assault. When officers arrived at the scene, they found Cho’s step-mother, 61-year-old Haw Sun Kim, suffering from multiple stab wounds. She was declared deceased at the scene.
The investigation indicated that Cho became involved in argument with his step-mother. During that argument, he took a knife and stabbed her repeatedly. He fled the scene before police arrived.
This incident remains under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Homicide Unit.
