Baltimore County Police have charged two men in the killing of Vincent Isiah Thomas, 20, whose body was discovered in a field next to Baltimore Highlands Elementary School on an early Saturday morning.
Keith Burgess, 23, of the 3700 block of McDowell Lane in Baltimore Highlands was arrested March 18 and Damonya Cook, 20, of the 7800 block of Tall Pines Court in Glen Burnie was arrested March 22.
Shortly after 6 a.m. on Feb. 19, a resident out walking discovered Thomas unresponsive in the middle of a field near the intersection of Illinois Avenue and Annapolis Road.
