Two men from Salisbury have been arrested for the murder of a 63-year-old woman, according toWGMD.com.
The woman lived with her brother; however, she was home alone on the evening of December 17, when police allege two men broke into her home to burglarize the house. The victim purportedly came out of her bedroom, and was shot to death. The victim was found by her brother shortly after one a.m.
The suspects, both age 21, have been charged with first and second degree murder. One of the men was also charged with armed robbery and other crimes. Both suspects are being held at the Wicomico County Detention Center on no bond.
