Lemuel Lee Roberts.
A truly shocking development.
I bet the neighbors are devastated.
Neighbors say homicide suspect Lemuel Lee Roberts and his ex-wife Kaitlin Nichole Roberts had been fighting in the months leading up to him being charged with killing her.
Kaitlin Roberts was found lying dead in the road “with obvious signs of injury” at the intersection of English Muffin Court and English Muffin Way in Frederick, Md., around 2 a.m. Saturday, according to police.
At 3:32 a.m. Saturday, an empty vehicle believed to be the getaway car in the killing was found on fire on Red Bud Road in Frederick County, according to Sheriff Lenny Millholland.
Lemuel Roberts, 31, was later charged with first-degree murder. He was being held without bond on Monday night at the Northwestern Regional Adult Detention Center on Fort Collier Road pending extradition to Maryland.
The Robertses were living together despite divorcing in 2018. They married in August of 2017, separated three months later and had a 3½-year-old daughter and 2½-year-old son together, according to their divorce papers. The Robertses also each have a son from previous relationships, according to Charita Roberts.
