Police issue warrants for 2 men in girl's killing

Baltimore County police were still searching yesterday for two men they believe were involved in the killing of 15-year-old Quartina Johnson.

The Woodlawn girl was strangled and her body was found on fire July 20 in a Pikesville park, police said.


She had run away from her foster home with another girl a day earlier, according to charging documents in the case, and the two were picked up by a group of men.

Police have arrest warrants for Eric Thomas Watkins, 18, of the 3000 block of Frisby St. in Baltimore and Jason Terance Richards, 24, of the 7400 block of Kathydale Road in Pikesville.


They are charged with first-degree murder.

Watkins is described as a 5-foot-9-inch, 138-pound black man with black hair and brown eyes.

Richards is described as a 6-foot-2-inch, 165-pound black man with black hair and brown eyes.

Two other men charged in the case were arrested last week.

Michael Xavier Shelton, 18, of the 700 block of Kahn Drive in Pikesville is charged with first-degree murder.

Ogden Edward Coleman, 20, of the 7300 block of Campfield Road in Pikesville is charged with one count of being an accessory after the fact.
