Joshua Terrell Mebane charged as adult on first degree murder, attempted murder charges, in death of Teresa Bass of Waldorf, Md.
WALDORF, Md. (WUSA) -- Police say a 17-year-old has been indicted for the murder of Teresa Bass, which occurred in Waldorf, Md. on October 26.
Authorities believe Joshua Terrell Mebane shot Teresa Bass and her husband Jerry. Monday, a Charles County Grand Jury returned an indictment for First Degree Murder of Teresa Bass, Attempted First Degree Murder of Jerry Bass, First Degree Assault on both Mr. and Mrs. Bass, multiple counts of Use of a Handgun in the Commission of a Crime of Violence and Possessing a Handgun Under the Age of 21.
He faces two life sentences plus 68 years if convicted on all of these counts.
Mebane is already in jail in D.C. on an unrelated charge of murder for the death of cab driver Quadar Mohammad. Mebane will stand trial for the Waldorf case after D.C. tries him for the cab driver's murder, which could be as soon as this summer, say the Charles County State's attorney.
