Murder suspect returned to St. Mary's

Matt Zapotosky

A Lexington Park man accused of killing a woman whose body was found under a New Jersey bridge has been returned to St. Mary’s County and served with an arrest warrant charging him with second-degree murder, authorities said Friday.

St. Mary’s County criminal investigators drove to New York Thursday to take Benjamin Moore, 46, back to St. Mary’s County to face the charge, authorities said.

Moore is accused of killing Devon Baker, 37, also of Lexington Park, whose body was discovered by a fisherman near the Princeton Country Club in Trenton, N.J., last month.

Moore had initially been taken into custody in Canada, then transported to the United States.

He is currently incarcerated in the St. Mary’s County Detention Center.

I'm so glad he's back in St. May's County. All he did was destroy a community and shatter a family. May he rot in hell.
