Yesterday, at approximately 11:00 am, PGPD officers responded to the 9300 block of Cherry Hill Road for a welfare check. When officers arrived, they located a victim inside of her apartment unresponsive suffering from trauma. She was pronounced dead on the scene.

The Seven Springs apartment complex is located in an unincorporated area of Prince George’s county, just outside of College Park’s municipal boundary. Both share the 20740 zip code.

The Homicide Unit charged a suspect in connection with a homicide on Wednesday inside of a College Park apartment. The suspect is 30-year-old Junior Bernard, Jr. of College Park. He’s charged with the murder of his mother, 61-year-old Marlene Sloley. They lived together in the apartment where the crime occurred.

The preliminary investigation revealed the suspect fatally assaulted his mother during a dispute. After the murder, he fled the scene. Officers took him into custody a short time later at a relative’s home in Landover.

Bernard Jr. is charged with first and second-degree murder and related charges. He’s in the custody of the Department of Corrections. A commissioner ordered him held on a no-bond status.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call 301-516-2512.
