Authorities said Friday that they had arrested two men and a woman and charged them with murder in the fatal shooting of a Baltimore man who was reported kidnapped, then found dead hours later in Annapolis.

The three suspects were identified as Jamar Davon Fincher, 36, Monae Monik Fincher, 35, and Marquis Mayo, 35, all of Baltimore, Annapolis Police said in a news release.

The Finchers were arrested April 4 in Baltimore, and Mayo was arrested in the city the following day. According to police charging documents, the Finchers were divorced and he had recently been released from prison after serving time for armed robbery.

The three are charged with first degree murder and related charges in the death of David Winchester Jr., 47, of Baltimore, police said. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner ruled his death a homicide by shooting.

Jamar Fincher also is charged with kidnapping, first- and second-degree assault, firearm use and illegal possession of a firearm, the charging documents say.

Arrest records for the two other suspects were not immediately available Friday afternoon.

The Finchers were being held without bail in the Jennifer Road Detention Center in Annapolis; Mayo was waiting his initial hearing before the District Court Commissioner.

Annapolis Police worked jointly with Baltimore Police to investigate the killing of Winchester, whose mother had reported him kidnapped in the early morning hours of March 28.

Baltimore Police officers responded to a report of a home invasion in the Southwest District at 12:45 a.m., police said in a tweet.

Winchester’s mother told police that she heard a knock on the door and someone on the other side told her that her son was in the trunk of his vehicle and demanded that she open the door, according to charging documents. When she opened the door, a masked man brandished a handgun, pointing it at her face.

The man pushed his way into the home, followed by another masked man, who was wielding an AR rifle.

Winchester’s sister heard commotion downstairs and went to see what was happening. The two men demanded money, and the sister ran upstairs and locked herself in a bedroom.

“My children are up here!” Winchester’s sister said.

One of the men shot two bullets through the bedroom door. No one was harmed.

The mother ran over to the stairs to see what had happened, and the intruder with the AR rifle grabbed her and said he would kill her, according to charging documents.

The two men then left the house, telling the mother that they intended to kill her son, charging documents said. They parked Winchester’s vehicle and drove away in a blue car, police said.

Nearly eight hours later, Annapolis Police officers were dispatched to a wooded area in the 900 block of Spa Road, where they found a dead man. It was Winchester.

“At this time it appears Mr. Winchester was abducted by unknown suspects in Baltimore on March 28th,” Annapolis Police said in a news release the next day.

Winchester was found face-down and lying on his pants. He had been shot twice in the head, according to charging documents.

Annapolis Police Department detectives later obtained security camera footage from nearby Bates Middle School. On the footage, detectives saw a car’s headlights turn into the track and field parking lot, and two quick flashes. Shortly afterward, the vehicle’s headlights were turned on and it left the scene.

Nearby residents reported hearing “two pops” around the same time.

License plate readers and closed-circuit cameras captured Monae Fincher’s blue Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross traveling on West Street in Annapolis prior to the shooting, and then seemingly headed out of the city on Taylor Avenue afterward, charging documents said.

Investigators also used GPS data from Jamar Fincher’s cell phone to place him at the Safari nightclub in Baltimore at the same time as the victim, and later at the scene of the home invasion and on Spa Road in Annapolis at the time of the killing, police said
