A Carroll County grand jury has indicted two men accused of murdering a New Windsor woman last month on additional charges.
Bret Michael Wheeler, 25, of the 2000 block of Dennings Road in New Windsor, and Robert Theodore Bosley, 38, who was on work release at the time of the killing, were indicted Sept. 1 on charges of first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder, first-degree assault and conspiracy to commit assault.
Wheeler faces an additional count of accessory to murder after the fact.
Both continue to be held at the Carroll County Detention Center without bond.
At a hearing in Carroll County District Court, prosecutors called the Aug. 8 killing of 35-year-old Kandi Lynn Gerber a "planned, vicious and brutal homicide."
Prosecutors allege Wheeler and Bosley lured Gerber to the house on Dennings Road where she and Wheeler were living, then Bosley strangled her and cut her throat before they dumped her body in a wooded area more than 6 miles away.
Witnesses directed law enforcement to an address on S. Springdale Road where Wheeler and Bosley were detained, and police found Gerber's body a few hours later near the intersection of Old Washington and Muller roads in Westminster with a neck laceration, according to charging documents.
