13-year-old is suspect in slaying at Prince George's juvenile facility
Police are questioning a 13-year-old boy in connection with the slaying of a teacher at a state-run juvenile detention center in Prince George's County, and law enforcement sources say he is detectives' main suspect in the killing.
The boy has not been charged, and it remains unclear exactly how or why he might have killed 65-year-old Hannah Wheeling, a Bel Air resident and teacher of general studies at the Cheltenham Youth Facility. The boy is a resident of the facility, but has been moved, the sources said.
Law enforcement sources have said Wheeling appeared to have been sexually assaulted and beaten to death when another employee at the facility found her body at about 7:45 a.m Thursday.
