LA PLATA, Md. -- Charles County Sheriff Rex W. Coffey said detectives have obtained an arrest warrant charging Joshua Terrell Mebane, 17, of Waldorf, in connection with the Oct. 26 shooting death of Teresa Bass, 40, and the wounding of her husband, 43, that occurred in the Hampshire neighborhood of Waldorf.

On Nov. 9, law enforcement authorities received information that Mebane was involved in a homicide in Washington, D.C. and was possibly connected to the shooting in Waldorf. Investigators from the Charles Coutny Sheriff's Office and the Metropolitan Police Department conducted an investigation and Mebane was arrested later that night and charged in connection with the homicide in the district. Investigators from the Charles County Sheriff's Office continued with the investigation and subsequently served a search warrant at Mebane's home where evidence was recovered linking Mebane to the shooting in Hampshire.

On Nov. 13, detectives from the Charles County Sheriff's Office obtained an arrest warrant charging Mebane with first-degree murder and attempted murder. Mebane is currently being held in jail in Washington, D.C. (This Washington Times story details the alleged murder of a Washington, D.C. cab driver by Mebane and his girlfriend.)

Detectives are continuing to work on establishing a motive. Additional information will be provided once investigators complete their investigation and review the case with the State's Attorney's Office.
