A Frederick County grand jury indicted a Jefferson man on one count of first-degree murder after he allegedly killed his girlfriend. Chris Lee Myers, 39, waived his right to a bond review on May 3, and is currently being held at the Frederick County Adult Detention Center without bond.
“Grand Jury is just the first step in the process of pursuing justice for this horrible domestic violence homicide. We are continuing our investigation, and I look forward to proving his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt,” State’s Attorney Charlie Smith said in a press release.
Myers is accused of killing his girlfriend, Heather Williams, on May 1 at her residence in the 4500 block of Jefferson Pike.
Relatives went to check on her after she did not arrive at their residence as expected. When they entered her home they found her dead with substantial head trauma.
Myers, who shared the residence with Williams, was arrested by the Baltimore Police Department at approximately 6 p.m. on May 1 after being stopped for a traffic violation in the city. He was driving Williams’ vehicle at the time of his arrest. A search warrant of the vehicle revealed several items in the car with what appeared to be blood stains on them. Williams’ cell phone and purse were also found in the vehicle.
Williams’ body was taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore where an autopsy was performed and will determine the manner of death.
The State’s Attorney’s Office is urging anyone with information concerning the events or the parties to contact the Maryland State Police, Frederick Barrack.
