Police say a Maryland man has been charged in the death of a Virginia man whose body was found in West Virginia.
The Jefferson County sheriff's office says in a news release that 43-year-old Ryan David Bretzfelder of Frederick was charged with first-degree murder Monday night in the death of Devon Jamel Wallace of Alexandria.
The statement says the 24-year-old Wallace was killed in Frederick and his body was driven to Jefferson County and found May 2 in a field. Authorities say Wallace died from blunt-force trauma to the head.
The sheriff's office did not disclose a motive for the slayings or say what led authorities to believe Bretzfelder was responsible.
The statement says the death remains under investigation and that additional charges are possible.
