Police Charge Annapolis Man in Owings Mills Homicide

Jeffrey Michael Shiflett is charged in the death of Katie Hadel.

Baltimore County Police have charged an Annapolis man with murder in the death of Owings Mills resident Katie Hadel.

Jeffrey Michael Shiflett, 33, of the 1700 block of Saint Margarets Road in Annapolis, is charged with one count of first-degree murder, according to a Baltimore County Police press release.

He was arrested without incident Wednesday morning shortly after 11 a.m. when an officer spotted him walking on the street in the Reisterstown area, police said. He is currently being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

Police found the body of Hadel, 33, in her apartment on the unit block of Wellhaven Circle Tuesday night while responding to a domestic disturbance report. Two small children were found unharmed in the apartment, according to a police press release.

Hadel was stabbed multiple times and was pronounced deceased at the scene, police said.

At 10:09 p.m. Tuesday, officers from the Pikesville precinct were called to the scene. The door to the apartment was locked and there was no answer, but officers could hear movement inside, according to police.

The police tactical unit entered the apartment by force and found Hadel's body and the two children, the release said.

Shiflett and Hadel had a prior relationship, and police are working to determine the exact connection, they said.

Did Katie go to Owings Mills?

He is a meth addict looking at his face.
Amy W February 07, 2013 at 05:34 PM

Rich Buddy Allgaier February 07, 2013 at 07:15 PM

There are many who wish to turn a blind eye and deny that a problem exist. All out of fear of being labeled a racist.

He should be charged with 2 counts. Piece of sh*t junkie. Has nothing to do with Reisterstown! Let's hope for the Death Penalty.

I guess by being in jail for 4 years, coming out and killing the person who testified against you is as premeditated as it gets
Gina February 07, 2013 at 10:25 PM
Glad they found him.
Gina February 07, 2013 at 10:26 PM
Happy they found his as*.

Notice how the focus is on the story when the person is White. When the person is Black the focus becomes race with people using coded language to disguise their intolerance for a diverse community.
ddbs00 February 08, 2013 at 01:26 PM
Or maybe this is just a horrific story that has nothing to do with race.

What about Felicia Barnes, didn't that get enough press for you!!!

Unbelievable. This guy just get releaed from the baltimore city correctional center where i worked. I think he got released two months ago. And he commited a murder already. All the time he was locked up there under my supervision as officer, he was a low profile inmate, acting like someone who want to do his time and go home. Now i think he should never been released. It saddened me to hear on the news what he did. I hope he get a death sentence.

"Credit BCPD" is a very poor choice of words! I understand you are giving them credit for the photo of this monster Schiflett. If the BCP did their jobs, Katie Hadel would still be alive. Ms. Robin Hadel and her family would not be going through this terrible grief. Is the nonsense by Judy Schagrin taking preference over Katie Hadel, because Ms. Hadel had some previous issues? I have pointed out several times, Jimmy Johnson has his goons parading around Dumbcastle DSS with Schagrin for no valid reason except his stupidity and her arrogance. Robin Hadel, my email is Dumbcastle1@gmail.com. Have your lawyer give me a call and I'll give them the details on the waste of police resources by Jimmy Johnson who is a political hack and tool for Kevin Kamenetz. How many other victims will there be Jimmy Johnson because of your incompetence and sucking up to del. Jones & Schagrin of DSS & Kamenetz? Are u doing this to appease Del Jones- Jimmy Johnson? Jones is the Baltimore County delegate then appointed by Kamenetz to a cushy, high paid position in DHR, Her main function in the General Asylum is to lobby for DHR to ignore DHR's criminal behavior! Look at the past five OLA reports concerning DHR. 42,000 missing or stolen items, an illegal $850,000 computer system, CINA/TPR lawyers ripping off Taxpayers, 3 million paid to Meccas Place by DHR & they ignore child abuse!DRH is a broken and criminal agency.Where are reports PD11-115-1033 & 12-131-1377 Jimmy? Who audits BCPD?

Yes, this is sad. Why did she go back to her apt when she was told not to?
ED February 10, 2013 at 02:10 AM
To late now . Cops dont have to set at the funeral home the ones in there are not doing crimes.
stef February 10, 2013 at 06:28 AM
He wasn't a meth head, she scratched him in self defense. He was released from jail two days before for violating the restraining order she had against him.
stef February 10, 2013 at 06:31 AM
She was also pregnant and he murdered her in front of her daughter. Whoever is making this a racial issue is ridiculous. It's a tragedy, both murders are tragedies.

Behave yourself ;-)
Needaname February 10, 2013 at 12:22 PM
I thought it was quiet out your way. At least you know it was a targeted crime unlike the city. Downtown you never know what you might get yourself into.
Matt February 10, 2013 at 12:34 PM
Exactly. The police can't help you too much if you don't want to help yourself.
Loomis February 20, 2013 at 05:23 AM
i think this animal needs to die a painful death if he is guilty...i would have said the same thing no matter the race
