Maryland Man Charged With Killing Former Girlfriend In 2007

LANDOVER HILLS, Md. (AP) — Police in Maryland have charged a man with killing his ex-girlfriend 10 years ago.

Prince George’s County Police say in a news release Wednesday that in April 2007, 44-year-old Sharon Cunningham of Washington, D.C. was found dead in a motel in Landover Hills, Maryland. Authorities say she was strangled and her death was a homicide.

Police say a witness provided new information in the case and detectives arrested 49-year-old Darryl Strickland on May 4 in connection with Cunningham’s death. He is charged with first- and second-degree murder and is being held without bond.

Online court records don’t list a lawyer for Strickland.
