MURDER USA Eric Glass charged with homicide of pregnant wife; doctors save the baby
PARKVILLE, MD. – A man shot his wife and killed her, say Baltimore County Police, and while the woman died at the hospital, the emergency staff were able to save the baby.
Baltimore County Police have charged Eric Maurice Glass, 30, of 2523 Wentworth Road, Parkville, Md., for the shooting of his pregnant wife. Just before 10 p.m. on May 1, 2018, police responded to the residence on Wentworth Road in Parkville for a disturbance.
After the initial response and investigation, detectives were able to determine that Glass shot his 30-year-old wife, Jasmine Alisha Kennedy. After shooting his wife, Glass shot himself in the head. The suspect then punched the victim’s 14-year-old son.
The children inside the house where able to leave the house and go to a neighbor’s home for help. The suspect then came to the neighbor’s house and forced his way inside the residence and assaulted the occupants inside. Once outside again, the suspect was detained by another neighbor until police arrived and took Glass into custody.
Jasmine Kennedy was transported to a local hospital when medical personnel determined that she was pregnant. Physicians were able to remove the child from the victim. Mrs. Kennedy was in critical condition and placed on life support. On May 2, 2018, at 5:38 p.m., Jasmine Kennedy was removed from life support and pronounced deceased.
The newborn child was last listed in critical but stable condition. Eric Glass has been charged with first-degree assault, attempted first-degree murder, second-degree child abuse, third-degree burglary, and second-degree assault. He is currently being held on a denied bail status. The Baltimore County State’s Attorney’s Office will upgrade Glass’ charges at a later date.
Charged in Baltimore City Circuit Court on Dec. 16, 2016, Glass faced charges of second-degree assault and violation of probation. IN a plea deal with Baltimore City States Attorney Marilyn Mosby, Glass entered a plea of guilty. THE DEAL: A verdict of Probation After Conviction was the result in court on April 25, 2017. Glass was sentenced to one year and six months in jail; one year, five months and 29 days were suspended, meaning he was sentenced to but one day in jail. On Dec. 22, 2017, Glass was charged again with violation of the terms of his probation.
