Woman arrested in Mich., accused of death in Maryland
Bay City — A 40-year-old woman accused of fatally shooting a man in Baltimore County, Maryland, has been arrested in Michigan.
The Bay City Times reports Deidra Griffin was taken into custody Monday night at a home in Bay County, Michigan. She was arraigned Tuesday on extraditable offenses including first-degree murder and firearm use in the commission of a violent crime.
Authorities accuse Griffin of killing 51-year-old Lonnie Paye Jr. of Randallstown, Maryland. Bay County Prosecutor Kurt C. Asbury says investigators found evidence believed to be linked to Paye’s death at the home where Griffin was arrested.
A judge said he would appoint Griffin an attorney to represent her on the matter of extradition. She said via video that she’s not a flight risk, but the judge did not grant bond.
An extradition hearing is expected next month.
