No bail for Virginia man charged with slaying his mother in her Tracy Landings home

A Virginia man charged with murdering his mother at her Tracys Landing home will remain in jail after he waived his bail review Thursday.

Andrew Beavers, 23, was expedited from a Loudon County, Virginia, jail back to Anne Arundel County on Wednesday. Beavers fled to Leesburg, Virginia, after allegedly stabbing Juanita Koilpillai, 58, to death, police said.

Koilpillai was a successful cybersecurity executive who moved to Anne Arundel County in 2018 to be by the water, friends said.

Anne Arundel County police issued a warrant for Beavers’ arrest five days after police found Koilpillai’s body stashed outside her home on Genoa Road on July 25. Police followed a trail of blood from a master bedroom to outside, where Koilpillai was discovered with fatal sharp force injuries from a knife.

Beavers was living with his mother at her Tracys Landing house and had assaulted her in the past, police wrote in charging documents. After he killed her and hid her body, Beavers drove her car to Leesburg, Virginia, where his father lives and where Koilpillai had another residence. Police found a knife and various DNA samples inside the house that were tested by the department’s serology unit.

Test results determined Koilpillai’s blood and Beavers’ DNA were on the knife, police said.

Beaves also had a fresh cut on his right hand that he wouldn’t explain to detectives, police said. It “appeared recent as it was still actively bleeding when law enforcement located him,” police wrote in documents charging him with first- and second-degree murder.

At a bail review Thursday, defense attorney Debra Saltz waived the hearing, citing a need more additional information about the case and Beaver’s lack of a Maryland residence. Saltz declined to comment after the hearing.

District Judge Kemp Hammond ordered Beavers to remain held on a no bond status.
