Judge denies bail to 4 teens accused in woman's slaying


As family and friends gathered yesterday afternoon to remember Kimberly Sue Ramsey's life, her stepson and three of the five other teen-age suspects accused in her fatal shooting were denied bail by a Towson District Court judge.

Baltimore County police still were searching for an older, seventh suspect, and said more arrests are possible in the slaying Thursday of the 32-year-old Middle River woman, who was shot during a burglary at her home.

Charged with first-degree murder and denied bail yesterday were Mrs. Ramsey's stepson, Roger Dale Ramsey Jr., 18, and his friends, Robert Scott Simmons, 19, Kimberly Michele Lange, 17, and Selena Wiatrowski, 18.

Police were awaiting the extradition of 18-year-old Daniel Scheuerman and Jamie Lynn Arthur, a 14-year-old girl, who they said fled to Daytona Beach, Fla., in the victim's 1988 Chevrolet Beretta. They also were charged in the slaying, along with John Isaac Reed IV, 20, who was still being sought.

Police said the burglary was planned by the stepson and five friends in a Middle River townhouse rented by Ms. Wiatrowski.

Charging documents said Ms. Wiatrowski supplied Mr. Reed with a .38-caliber revolver and three bullets. Then all but Ms. Wiatrowski piled into Mr. Simmons' red Dodge pickup truck and headed for the Ramsey home on Endsleigh Avenue.
