GLEN BURNIE, Md. (FOX 5 DC) - Authorities have arrested a 19-year-old man in Mexico and his 18-year-old wife in Anne Arundel County in connection with the weekend shooting deaths of two men in Glen Burnie.
Officers say Edwin Javier Hurtado-Valdez was taken into custody near Nuevo Laredo, Mexico on Wednesday after investigators worked with law enforcement in the Tamaulipas region of the country. Hurtado-Valdez faces multiple charges including two counts of first and second degree murder after police say he was responsible for shooting and killing two men at an apartment complex in the 300 block of Highland Drive on Sunday. Hurtado-Valdez’s wife, Cambrea May Lynn Sieck, turned herself in Friday after police say they convinced her family members to persuade her to cooperate with them regarding the investigation. Police say Sieck helped her husband flee following the shootings and faces two counts of accessory after the fact.
Officers say the investigation began when they responded to the apartment complex to investigate the report of gunshots and found 20-year-old Antwon Elijah Queen and 24-year-old Antwan Troy Briggs suffering from gunshot wounds. Queen was found in the parking lot of the building and Briggs was found inside one of the units. Both were pronounced dead at the scene. On Monday, police located and searched a vehicle they said belonged to the couple in the Pasadena area.
Authorities say they expect Hurtado-Valdez to be extradited back to the United States in the next few weeks. Sieck is being held at the Anne Arundel County Detention Center on a no bond status.
