FREDERICK COUNTY, Md. (WDVM) — Through the use of video surveillance and witness statements, Frederick County Sheriff’s Office detectives arrested 18-year-old Edward Dwimoh with charges of first-degree murder.

20-year-old Tyree Haynes is also believed to be involved in the murder and is already in custody.
