A Jarrettsville man has been charged after police found a missing woman dead inside her Rosedale home early Friday morning.
Detectives found the body of Athena Dardamanis, 63, known to friends as “Tina,” inside her home in the 8600 block of Trumps Mill Road during the execution of a search warrant after she was reported missing by friends Thursday afternoon.
Homicide detectives were called to investigate when officers determined that there were suspicious factors surrounding the Dardamanis’ disappearance. An autopsy conducted Friday determined the manner of death to be homicide by multiple traumatic injuries to the upper body.
The suspect has been identified as Kenneth Kyle Quick, Jr., 44, of Jarrettsville. Quick had stayed in Dardamanis’ home on recent occasions and was known to owe her a large sum of money, which she had told friends she intended to collect just before her disappearance.
Quick has been charged with first-degree murder and is being held on a “no bail” status at the Baltimore County Detention Center pending trial.
