Arrest made in woman's stabbing death in Anne Arundel

Anne Arundel County Police have arrested a Severna Park man and charged him with first-degree murder and other related counts in the Saturday stabbing death of a 52-year-old Pasadena woman, authorities said.

Francis Eugene Adams, 22, was taken into custody at about 1 p.m. Sunday at his home in Severna Park, authorities said.

He is charged with first-degree murder and other related counts in the fatal stabbing of Debra Lynn Gill, 52, of Pasadena, and the stabbing and wounding of a 25-year-old man in the 8000 block of Corkberry Lane in Pasadena Saturday, authorities said.

The man was treated and released from the hospital, authorities said.

Police said in a Sunday news release that “a verbal altercation between the victims and the suspects took place earlier that evening at another location,” and the suspects followed the victims to the address on Corkberry Lane.

They said the male victim was also robbed during the attack, and robbery appears to be the motive in the case.
