The parents of a teenage girl slain by her ex-boyfriend after the Prince George's County Sheriff's Office failed to arrest the man on an open warrant are angered that the agency has again mishandled an arrest warrant for another man now accused of murder.
A Prince George's County jury found a man guilty of first-degree murder in last summer's fatal shooting of his 17-year-old former girlfriend in Landover, an incident that highlighted the mishandling of a felony arrest warrant by the county's Office of the Sheriff.
"We are a year later, and we are still mishandling open warrants or not taking them seriously," said Tawanda Brown-Hines, the stepmother of LaCole Hines, who was fatally shot in August 2010. "If this happens once, and it happens again, when are they going to do something about this?"
"He was trying to say how the old administration didn't do things right," Mr. Hines said. "That shows to me that he felt there was some wrong done there."
