Rashaan M. Williams, 27, of the Milford Mill area, was charged with first-degree murder in the death of Melinda Schaefer, 29. Schaefer was stabbed in the head and upper body and she was found face down in a pool of blood by a janitor in the morning of June 14, police have said. Signs of a struggle in the Townes at Harvestview leasing office were apparent, police said, with Schaefer’s chair overturned and a desk pushed across the room.
A Rashaan M. Williams fitting the age of the murder defendant in this case has an open charge of driving while suspended in Baltimore County now with an October trial date. A person of the same name also has a marijuana stet from Howard County from 5 years ago, and a hit-and-run and driving while impaired PBJ from 2011 in Baltimore County. I suspect strongly that they are the same person, but cannot confirm that fact.
The apartment complex is perhaps a 15 minute walk from this law office, less than a mile, just on the other side of Franklin Middle School down Main Street in Reisterstown.
