Charged With 1st Degree Murder
Anne Arundel County Police have arrested Francis Eugene Adams of Severna Park in connection with the double stabbing in Pasadena. Through investigation, detectives were able to identify the suspect and took him into custody this afternoon at his home on East Drive in Severna Park.
At this point, it appears that the victim (Debra Lynn Gill) and the suspect had an argument at a different location and Adams followed her to her Pasadena home with the intent to rob her. Another argument ensued and Gill was fatally stabbed. Gill’s friend, a 25 year old male, was also stabbed. He was treated and released at the hospital.
Adams is currently being held without bail at the Jennifer Road Detention Center.
At this time, the motive appears to be robbery and this case remains very active. Anyone with information on this crime is asked to contact Detective Jason DiPietro of the Homicide Unit at 410-222-3415 or the Anne Arundel County Police Department at 410-222-8610.
