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.

UPDATE (August 5 2:56 p.m.)

Baltimore County Police have identified the driver of the truck that was struck by a train this morning in Rosedale as 44-year-old Ramona Patrice Jones of Cockeysville. She has been charged on a citation with failure to stop at a railway crossing.

The truck involved in the incident was a 2005 Peterbuilt truck owned by Nova Services Inc. of the Unit block of Thomas Ave 21225.

Original release (August 5 10:07 a.m.)

At 8:08 a.m. this morning, Baltimore County Fire and Police personnel responded to the 7500 block of Lake Drive in Rosedale for a report of a train that had collided with a vehicle.

A CSX train that had been traveling south-bound struck a vehicle as the vehicle crossed the tracks. The train was only carrying beverages and had no hazardous materials on board. The vehicle was a truck that carried dumpsters but it was not carrying a dumpster at the time of the collision.

There were no reports of injuries as a result of this incident.

Police are still on the scene. Fire Department units have cleared.

U.S. Senator Barbara Mikulski visited the Rosedale Volunteer Fire Co. today to announce that Baltimore County firefighters will receive $2.3 million in federal grants to help replace aging equipment.

The money will pay for new self-contained breathing apparatus for career and volunteer stations. The current SCBA inventory is 15 years old and at the end of its life cycle.

The money comes through Assistance to Firefighters Grants. AFG helps fire departments and EMS organizations meet firefighting and emergency response needs.

The AFG grant will not cover the entire cost of replacing SCBA; Baltimore County will contribute significantly to the purchase of this essential gear.

Recruitment and Retention

Senator Mikulski also announced a federal SAFER (Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response) grant to Maryland State Firemen’s Association. The $2.3 million grant will be used to help volunteer fire companies recruit and retain well-trained responders.

County Executive Kevin Kamenetz and Fire Chief John Hohman – as well as representatives from the Maryland State and Baltimore County Firemen’s Associations – attended the Rosedale announcement.
