Homicide Detectives in Baltimore County have charged a suspect in connection with the death of a 91-year-old woman in her Parkville home.
At about 7:15 p.m. last Tuesday night, Baltimore County Police and Fire personnel responded to a home in the 8200 block of Evergreen Drive for a cardiac arrest call. When they arrived, they found 91-year-old Nadia Evanowicz Schaible lying on the basement floor. She was declared dead at the scene.
Officers spoke with Schaible’s cousin, 72-year-old John Malko of Salt Lake City, Utah. He stated that he had been visiting Schaible and left the location. When he returned, he found the kitchen door broken, jewelry items scattered on the floor of Schaible’s room, and Schaible’s body in the basement.
Schaible’s body was taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy. That autopsy determined that cause of her death was multiple blunt force injuries and manner of her death was homicide.
Further investigation indicated that Malko was responsible for Schaible’s death and had staged the burglary.
Malko has been charged with first-degree murder and is being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.
This incident remains under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Homicide Unit.
