Baltimore woman, who found murdered boyfriend, charged in his killing

A 22-year-old Baltimore woman who called 911 and said she found her boyfriend fatally shot in an alley this summer has been charged in his murder, according to court records.

Asia La’trice Cutler was charged on Dec. 14 with first-degree murder and related charges in the Aug. 30 killing of boyfriend Donte Harris, 21. Police have also charged 21-year-old Shanda Cure and 24-year-old Willie Brockington with accessory after the fact, records show.

Charging documents contain few details about the case. At about 7:30 a.m., Harris was found shot in the head and left arm behind the 2900 block of Rockrose Ave. in the Park Circle neighborhood of Northwest Baltimore, and died at Sinai Hospital. Cutler told police that she found him bleeding in the alley and called 911.

Though records do not explain how Cure was developed as a witness, Det. Robert Heath wrote in charging documents that Cure waived her Miranda rights and “openly admitted to helping Asia Cutler, [and] Willie Brockington move Donte Harris’ body from the bedroom where he was shot and killed to the rear alley … where he was found.”

No motive is given. All are being held on bond, unusual in a murder case in Baltimore: Cutler is being held on $750,000 bond, Cure was being held on $150,000, and Brockington was being held on $200,000.

Cutler has previously been charged with burglary in 2011 — the charges were dropped — and has three prior theft convictions. No attorney was listed for her in public records.
