Adonay Dixon and John Childs were charged with first-degree murder in the death of Arnesha Bowers, an 11th-grader at City College. Police said Bowers was sexually assaulted in her home in the Westfield neighborhood of Northeast Baltimore and then strangled with an electrical cord. They said Dixon, 23, and Childs, 20, stole $40, an iPad and a laptop, and then set the home on fire.

Police Maj. Stanley Bradford, the head of Baltimore's homicide unit, said "the motive was evil." "Can you imagine leaving your child at home and two people come into her house hell-bent on death and destruction?" he asked. "I can only imagine what the last moments of Arnesha's life was like. It must have been pure hell."
