77-Year-Old Man Waits for Plea Offer in Fatal Stabbing Case

A 77-year-old man accused of fatally stabbing a woman is still waiting for a plea offer and the defense has gotten all discovery during reception court on Oct. 12 at Baltimore City Circuit Court.

Ronald Tazewell is charged with the death of a 57-year-old woman.

According to CBS Baltimore, police were called to the 500 block of Dolphin Street on Feb. 21 around 9:30 p.m. after a report of a disturbance. When police arrived, they found the victim unresponsive with stab wounds. Medics pronounced her dead at the scene.

Tazewell is charged with first-degree murder and use of a deadly weapon with the intent to injure.

On Tuesday, the prosecution said that they are still working on conveying a plea offer and all discovery has been given to the defense.

Tazewell’s defense attorney, Deborah Levi, confirmed that she had been provided with all discovery but mentioned that Tazewell is very old and has been hospitalized “this whole time.” 

This case will return to reception court on Nov. 18.
