A 24-year-old man has been indicted on charges that he helped dispose of the body of a man killed in Locust Point last spring, city prosecutors announced.
Jeremy Michael Smith, 24, of the 1500 block of Covington St. faces charges of being an accessory after the fact in the killing of Matthew Martin, 31, who disappeared April 9. Fishermen at Patapsco State Park discovered his body. Two men, Christopher Calvert and Kevin Skipper, were indicted July 1 in the killing.
Prosecutors said that Smith picked up Calvert at a house on Fort Avenue and went with him to a Lowe's hardware store to purchase a large plastic storage container, which they used to take Martin's body out of a house on Richardson Street in Locust Point. Smith allegedly helped Calvert dispose of the body at the park, prosecutors said.
Records show Smith was first charged and detained in early October, and he is being held on $500,000 bond. An arraignment is scheduled for Nov. 17. Court records show Smith is currently on probation for an unrelated sex-offense conviction.
