Police Investigate Correctional Officer’s Murder

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — There are new details in the weekend murder of a Maryland correctional officer.  WJZ learns police were called out to the victim’s apartment hours before the murder to stop a fight.  Derek Valcourt has more.

Police confirm they responded to what neighbors called an ugly argument between the victim and her boyfriend.  Less than a day later, she was shot to death.

At the Cold Spring Station apartments, the murder of 28-year-old Sheron Jones has devastated many neighbors, including Malinda Pinder, who knew Jones since she was four.

“It’s sad, it really is,” Pinder said.

Neighbors tell WJZ Jones and her live-in boyfriend got into a loud fight over the weekend.

“It was Friday night, Saturday morning, about 4:30 in the morning,” Pinder said.

Police confirm they were called to the apartment for a domestic dispute. 

Pinder lives next door.

“They came out and they talked to her and I sat over there for a little while and then the police left and once they left, I came back in there with her,” Pinder said.  “I said, `Don’t stay here.  Why don’t you go stay in your mother’s house?’  She says, `I’m not staying here.  I’m going over to a friend’s house.”

Early Sunday morning, Jones was shot to death at her friend’s house in the 1700 block of Aisquith Street in east Baltimore.  When detectives came to search her apartment for clues later that day, they found blood on the door and assumed the killer was still inside.  After a tense three-hour standoff, police realized the apartment was empty.

Grief counselors were on hand Monday at the Division of Pre-Trial Services, where Jones worked for six years in their transportation unit. 

Meanwhile, neighbors hope her killer is brought to justice.

“I just don’t understand it because she was very nice and loved,” Pinder said.

Police say they have not spoken with the victim’s boyfriend.  Officially, they would not say whether he was a suspect or even a person of interest in the case.

Jones was the mother of a three-year-old girl.  That girl is with other family members.

    Well, let ME say it for them. The boyfriend IS a suspect; not the politically correct “person of interest”. He IS a suspect and should be!!!!!!

    WHEN WILL THE STATE OF MARYLAND CALL IN THE ARMY AND SWEEP ALL OF MARYLAND FOR UNREGISTERED GUNS ,IF THEY DID THIS YEARS AGO I THINK THE MURDER RATE WOULD BE SUPER LOW ,THE CRIME RATE HERE IS OFF THE CHARTS AND THE ONLY WAY TO FIX IT IS BY ORDERING MARSHAL LAW.

      You Must Be A Liberal because people kill people not inanimate objects !
      In a perfect world no one would ever harm another person, but until or if that time ever happens, i hope you are never attacked because you are living in a fantasy world.
      I hope the best for everyone out there, and God Bless !
      PS: I would want to know how to defend and not need to use that knowledge, than to need to defend myself and not know how !
      Just a thought ! ! !

    I think If we would shorten the amount of time it takes to put a convicted person on death row to death , and also make it so everyone in our prison system country wide have to watch when it is carried out, this would be a much better and longer lasting impact than to again go after objects such as guns, knives,martial arts weapons,bats,pelt guns or anything a person can use to harm another person.
    Our Justus system needs a complete overhaul keeping people in prison without any possibility of ever returning on the outside is costing our country to much money.
    Use the death penalty and return to firing squad, hanging, or any other tougher way than the same way as putting down a love pet!
    Please remember its the person who kills, not the weapon !!!!!!!!!!!!!
