Man charged in slaying agrees to extradition


A man accused in the slaying of an Odenton liquor store owner and the wounding of three others has waived his extradition rights and is expected to be brought from a Texas jail to Maryland this week, county police said.

Dean Lamont Prue Jr., whose last known address is in the 8300 block of Timberlake Court in Severn, is charged in warrants with first-degree murder and three counts of attempted murder. He also is wanted in Anne Arundel County for failure to appear on traffic charges and in Howard County on drug charges.

Arundel police said Prue waived an extradition hearing, and homicide detectives are to pick him up from a Galveston County jail. He was arrested Dec. 6 by U.S. marshals who found him living with his girlfriend and her family in La Marque, Texas.

Police said a man walked up to the counter of Tom's Liquors and Korean Restaurant with a semi-automatic weapon Aug. 31 and opened fire, killing Thomas Sung Hall, 63. Hall's wife, Sue Jin Hall, 56, was shot in the right leg, and two occupants of a van were wounded.

Two men rob restaurant after one implies he has gun

A man who implied he had a gun and an accomplice robbed Odenton restaurant Sunday of an undisclosed amount of money, county police said.

A clerk at the China Plus restaurant in the 1600 block of Annapolis Road told police two men entered about 7 p.m. and walked to the rear. One of the men went to the counter and asked the clerk if anyone else was working. The clerk said there were two people in the back, police said. The man walked away to look in the back, then returned to the register and announced a robbery, police said.

The man held his right hand in his front pocket as if he had a weapon and demanded that the clerk put money in a bag. But when the clerk could not find a bag, the man told her to give him the money, police said.

She complied, and the men left the store, police said.
