Around 7:30 a.m. on Feb. 3, deputies from the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office in Maryland responded to a home in Great Mills for a well-being check of a man lying on the ground.
Investigators arrived on the scene and found the victim, who was pronounced declared dead at the scene, according to the sheriff's office.
Detectives and crime lab employees responded to the scene and continued the investigation. The victim was identified as Jermell Delontae Jones, 33.
The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office arrested Cherron Montril Waul, 44, in connection to the case. He was charged with first-degree murder, second-degree murder, armed robbery, first-degree assault and second-degree assault.
