Update (December 18, 2015, 12:50 p.m.)

Terrence L. Jenkins, 49, of the unit block of Skipjack Court, 21221, has been charged with first degree murder in the death of Shelly Fillion, his girlfriend, also of the unit block of Skipjack Court. Jenkins is also a suspect in last night's murder of a woman in the 3600 block of Pulaski Highway in Baltimore City.

Jenkins was arrested last night in Baltimore City at about 5:30 p.m. He is held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

Fillion's body was found Monday afternoon at the Skipjack Court address. Baltimore County homicide detectives quickly identified Jenkins as a possible suspect in the Skipjack Court murder. Yesterday afternoon, they received information that Jenkins made a phone call from an address in the 3600 block of Pulaski Highway. A team of detectives conducted a surveillance operation at and around that house. They saw a man they believed might be Jenkins enter the home after a woman let him in. The detectives maintained the surveillance. While the suspect was inside the house, detectives found a Ford Explorer belonging to Shelly Fillion parked nearby. 

Detectives approached Jenkins when he left the house, about 30 minutes after he entered, and followed him as he walked toward Fillion's vehicle. Jenkins fled on foot, with the foot chase continuing across Pulaski Highway. Jenkins was taken into custody without further incident.

Detectives entered the Pulaski Highway house, intending to glean information from whoever was in the house. Instead, they found the body of a woman, whose relationship with the suspect is unclear at this point. Baltimore City Police are investigating  the Pulaski Highway homicide.

Both homicide investigations are ongoing. BCoPD and BPD are cooperating fully on these cases.

Original release:

Police are investigating as a homicide the death of a woman whose body was found yesterday in her Essex home.

The victim is Shelly Lynn Fillion, 47, of the unit block of Skipjack Court in Precinct 11/Essex. A family member who checked on Fillion yesterday afternoon found the woman's body and notified police. Fillion had not contacted her family since Saturday.

Police were dispatched at about 5 p.m. Monday. They found Fillion's body located partially under a pull-out sofa in the living room. The woman had suffered traumatic injuries. The Office of the Medical Examiner will rule on the exact cause and manner of death, but police are treating this as a homicide.

The case remains under investigation, but detectives do not believe this was a random act.

Update (December 15, 11:30 a.m.):

The man and woman found dead yesterday inside a home in the 100 block Greenridge Rd. in Precinct 7/Cockeysville were a mother and son who died in an apparent murder-suicide.

The mother is Carryl Jean Calvert, 78. The son is Keith Michael Calvert, 42. Both lived at the Greenridge Road address.

Detectives learned that Keith Calvert was the sole caregiver for his mother. Neighbors interviewed by Homicide detectives said Keith Calvert had expressed frustration over the burdens of caring alone for his mother, and that he seemed depressed.

Both the mother and son died of gunshot wounds. Police believe Keith Calvert shot his mother before turning the gun on himself. The two had been dead for several days.
