Wind­sor Mill man charged in mur­der of woman miss­ing since 2010

Baltimore Sun - - AROUND THE REGION -

Six years af­ter 24-year- old Bal­ti­more res­i­dent Cherice Ra­gins went miss­ing, a grand jury in Bal­ti­more County has in­dicted her boyfriend on a charge of first-de­gree mur­der. County po­lice on Tues­day an­nounced the ar­rest of Travis Eu­gene Elleby, 30, of Wind­sor Mill. “It was over­whelm­ing,” Ra­gins’ mother, Clar­iese Ra­gins, said of learn­ing of Elleby’s ar­rest. Cherice Ra­gins’ body has never been found, and it’s un­clear what ev­i­dence in­ves­ti­ga­tors have against Elleby. No court records on the charges were pub­licly avail­able Tues­day. De­tec­tives “got to the point where they were sat­is­fied that she was de­ceased and it was the boyfriend that did it,” said po­lice spokesman Cpl. John Wachter. Elleby was taken into cus­tody Fri­day, Wachter said. Prose­cu­tor Gar­ret Glen­non said he could not com­ment on the case be­cause there are not yet any pub­lic court records on it. Clar­iese Ra­gins re­ported her daugh­ter miss­ing in Fe­bru­ary 2010, days af­ter the young woman said she was go­ing to visit Elleby and never re­turned. It was not clear Tues­day whether Elleby has an at­tor­ney.
