Detectives of the Baltimore County Police Homicide Unit have arrested and charged Shawn Franklin Radomski, Jr., 17, and his uncle, William Frederick Rose, III, 45, both of the 7900 block of Lansdale Road, in connection with the stabbing death of Christopher Trotter on Friday night.
Detectives learned that Radomski and Rose engaged in a verbal argument with the victim at a grocery store near the Flagship Movie Theater in the 7900 block of Eastern Avenue. The victim left with his groceries but was followed by Radomski and Rose into the movie theater where they continued the argument. Security at the theater removed Radomski and Rose, but when the victim left to walk home with his groceries, Radomski and Rose, along with a group of friends, followed him as he crossed the theater parking lot, assaulting and stabbing him multiple times before fleeing.
The victim, Christopher Dale Trotter, 33, of the 7900 block of Eastdale Road, was transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center where he was pronounced deceased.
Both Radomski and Rose are charged with First Degree Murder, Radomski being charged as an adult, and both continue to be held on no bail status at the Baltimore County Detention Center.
