BALTIMORE (AP) — A former student of the Dunbar High School assistant principal found shot to death in his home last month has been arrested and charged in his death, authorities in Baltimore County said Friday.

County police and court records show Zayeed Quinton Abdul-Muhaimin, 23, is accused of robbing and shooting Shelton Justin Stanley, whose body was found in his Pikesville home on Dec. 28, The Baltimore Sun reported.

Police were called to the home after family members didn’t hear from Stanley and went inside, where they found something rolled up in a blanket at the bottom of the basement stairs. An officer found Stanley’s body inside the blanket, according to police.

An autopsy determined that Stanley had been shot multiple times with a shotgun.

Police said detectives learned that on Dec. 27, Stanley’s bank card was used at an ATM, and surveillance video showed a man who appeared to be Abdul-Muhaimin making the transaction, with Stanley’s vehicle in the background.

A warrant was issued on Dec. 30, and Abdul-Muhaimin was arrested on Monday, though it was not disclosed until Friday afternoon. It’s not known if he has an attorney.

He did not have an attorney listed in online court records.
