Female charged in domestic homicde in Seven Oaks stemming from incident in November 2012..



On November 6, 2012, at approximately 10:03 a.m., members of the Anne Arundel County Police Department’s Western District responded to the 100 block of Pine Cove Avenue in Odenton for a report of an attempted suicide.

Upon arrival, officers discovered a male on the floor of the residence suffering from trauma to the upper torso. Fire Department personnel arrived and transported the victim to the Baltimore Washington Medical Center, where he died. The victim was identified as 45-year-old Jerome Vorden Wood. The Anne Arundel County Police Department’s Homicide Unit responded and initiated an investigation. Detectives interviewed several witnesses, and gathered evidence which revealed the injury was not self-inflicted. The incident was not random in nature and the parties involved were known to each other. A suspect was identified in the case and interviewed as part of the investigation.


The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore has since ruled the cause of death as a stab wound to the upper torso and the manner of death as homicide. Through further investigation and after consultation with the Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney’s Office, Homicide Detectives obtained an arrest warrant for the victim’s wife, Donna Mills Wood, 38, of 181 Pine Cove Avenue in Odenton, Maryland.

The suspect turned herself in at the Western District police station on March 14, 2013, at approximately 4:00 p.m., where she was served with the arrest warrant charging her with First Degree Murder. The suspect is currently being held at the Detention Center.

The investigation revealed that the suspect stabbed her husband inside of their residence. This is being investigated as a domestic-related incident. Anyone with any additional information is urged to contact Detective Vince Carbonaro of the Homicide Unit at 410-222-3453 or contact the Anne Arundel County Police Department at 410-222-8610.
