LA PLATA, Md. (June 30, 2011)—Charles County Sheriff Rex W. Coffey said detectives assigned to the Criminal Investigations Division have arrested Shawn Marshall Myers, 33, of Waldorf, in connection with the murder of Chris Mader who was shot and killed on the eve of Thanksgiving, 2004 near the intersection of Smallwood Drive and St. Stephen's Drive. Chris had just left his job as a bartender at Bennigan's and was heading home when he was shot. Myers is the second person charged in Mader's death.
Since 2004, detectives pursued a number of leads in this case. Then in 2010, additional information regarding the case surfaced and as a result, a Charles County Grand Jury returned a six-count indictment charging Matthew Derek Correll, 29, of King George Virginia, with first degree murder, attempt robbery and other charges. Correll was arrested on October 22 and held on bond.
Simultaneously, detectives continued pursuing additional leads. In April, a Charles County Grand Jury issued a five-count indictment charging Myers with first-degree murder, two counts of handgun use/felony/violent crime, attempt robbery with a deadly weapon, and conspiracy to commit armed robbery.
Myers, who was already in jail on an unrelated charge, was charged on June 28 and remanded to the Charles County Detention Center with no bond.
