Miss. Woman Charged in 2012 Md. Homicide

Posted:

ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) - Montgomery County Police say a Mississippi woman has been charged with first-degree murder in the shooting of a man in his Silver Spring apartment.

Law enforcement officers arrested 35-year-old Katrina Renee Ben Friday at her home in Silver Creek. She is being held in the Lawrence County, Miss., jail, pending extradition to Maryland.

Ben is charged in the June 6, 2012 slaying of 34-year-old Eric Somuah. Officers found him dead of a gunshot wound to the head in his apartment.

At that time, officers interviewed Ben, a neighbor who said she was in a romantic relationship with Somuah.

The next day, a partially disassembled gun was found and determined to have characteristics from a spent shell casing recovered at Somuah's apartment.

Police say Ben bought the gun in 2004.
