Crofton Man Arrested In December Slaying Of Frederick Man

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — Maryland State Police say a man charged with murder in the death of a man whose body was found in the trunk of his car has been arrested at a New York airport.

Michael Stahlnecker, 51, of Crofton was arrested about 6 a.m. Tuesday at JFK International Airport. He is charged in a warrant with first- and second-degree murder in the shooting death of John P. Ryan of Frederick.

Ryan’s body was found in the trunk of his car on Dec. 3 in a Montgomery County parking lot.

Troopers believe Ryan, 37, was shot at a warehouse Stahlnecker owned in Laurel and his body driven in his car to where it was found.

Stahlnecker is being held in New York pending extradition proceedings.
