State v. Bryan Patrick Weyhenmeyer, K14-1274
LA PLATA, MD—Tony Covington, State’s Attorney for Charles County announced that on November 10, 2016, Bryan Patrick Weyhenmeyer, 33 of Waldorf, entered a guilty plea to First Degree Murder for the October 12, 2014 murder of his wife Jennifer Lynn Weyhenmeyer, 36 of Waldorf.
On October 12, 2014, Jennifer Weyhenmeyer made a frantic phone call to 911 as her husband, Bryan Weyhenmeyer drove erratically northbound on 301 near La Plata. She indicated that they were together in their car and that he had threatened her. Minutes later, the phone call ended abruptly. Jennifer’s phone was subsequently found in the median strip of 301 in La Plata.
Approximately 10 minutes after the phone call ended, Jennifer Weyhenmeyer’s lifeless body was found by police in the rear parking area of the Pizza Hut in Waldorf Shoppers World shopping center. It was immediately evident to first responders that she had been struck and run over by a vehicle. Closer inspection of her body showed that Ms. Weyhenmeyer appeared to have been run over multiple times.
The Ford Edge that the couple had been traveling in was found in the driveway of their home not long after Jennifer’s body was located. Officers observed what appeared to be blood on the outside of the Ford Edge. Weyhenmeyer was determined to be inside the home but he refused to come out of the house and barricaded himself in a bedroom. The CCSO had to resort to firing a Co2 canister into the home before Weyhenmeyer surrendered to the police. After his arrest, forensic evidence was gathered and it was determined that Jennifer’s blood, hair, and clothing fibers were found on the bumpers, undercarriage, tires, and doors of the Weyhenmeyer’s vehicle.
Sentencing is set for March 22, 2017 before Charles County Circuit Court Judge, Amy J. Bragunier. Weyhenmeyer faces a sentence of no less than 30 years but no more than 45 years incarceration.
