Man slain in St. Mary's County

A Southern Maryland woman shot and killed a 55-year-old man and stayed at the scene until authorities arrived, St. Mary's County officials said Monday.

Joanna Joyce Findlay, 40, of Hollywood, was charged Sunday with second-degree murder in the death of Gary Alan Trogdon, according to the county's Bureau of Criminal Investigations. She was being held Monday in the St. Mary's County jail.

On Saturday, county deputies responded to a home on Little Cliffs Road, in Hollywood, after a report of a domestic assault underway, with shots fired during the dispute. They found Trogdon dead inside the home. Findlay was also there, and was detained, authorities said.
