BALTIMORE — A man was charged with murder Sunday in the killing of a nun who was found bound and gagged in a convent.
Melvin L. Jones, 34, of Baltimore, was arrested at a friend's house. He was charged with first-degree murder and burglary in the slaying of Sister MaryAnn Glinka of Baltimore, a police spokesman said. He was held without bail pending a hearing today.
Police said the nun may have surprised her attacker while he was burglarizing the convent.
