Anne Arundel County police today announced that they have issued an arrest warrant for a Glen Burnie man, charging him with second-degree murder.
Police said they identified Nelson Antonio "David" Rivera, 23, as a suspect in the death of Marco Tulio Nova Romero, 20, whose body was found Monday morning near a storage garage behind the 7700 block of Hancock Lane in Glen Burnie's Colonial Manor apartment complex.
Wounds and blood covered the upper part of Romero's body, and the medical examiner's office ruled Romero's death as a homicide Tuesday, according to authorities. A Glen Burnie man walking his dog discovered the body, police said.
