The hus­band of an Army pri­vate shot to death in her Sev­ern town­house last year was ar­rested Thurs­day and charged with her death, fed­eral of­fi­cials said Fri­day. Law en­force­ment of­fi­cials ar­rested Maliek Kear­ney, 35, and Dolores Del­gado, 31, both of San An­to­nio. They were picked up two days af­ter they were in­dicted by a fed­eral grand jury on charges of in­ter­state travel to com­mit do­mes­tic vi­o­lence, in the death of Kar­lyn Ramirez. The in­dict­ment was un­sealed upon their ar­rest in San An­to­nio on Thurs­day. “The in­dict­ment al­leges that Maliek Kear­ney and Dolores Del­gado con­spired to mur­der Kar­lyn Ramirez, a U.S. Army pri­vate first class based at Fort Meade, Mary­land,” U.S. At­tor­ney Rod J. Rosen­stein said in a pre­pared state­ment. “I am grate­ful to the po­lice and prose­cu­tors who have been work­ing tire­lessly to pur­sue jus­tice in this case.” Ac­cord­ing to the in­dict­ment, Kear­ney and Del­gado trav­eled from South Carolina to Mary­land on Aug. 24, 2015, to kill Ramirez. Ramirez was found the fol­low­ing morn­ing in her home in the 8000 block of Mill­stone Court, lo­cated in the Lake Vil­lage Town­homes rental com­plex. Main­te­nance work­ers alerted po­lice af­ter find­ing a glass door of the home was left open. Also in­side the town­house was Ramirez and Kear­ney’s 5-month-old daugh­ter. The child was un­harmed and later placed with Ramirez’s par­ents. Kear­ney and Del­gado face a max­i­mum sen­tence of life in prison. They had an ini­tial ap­pear­ance Thurs­day in U.S. Dis­trict Court for the Western Dis­trict of Texas in San An­to­nio. Both were or­dered held pend­ing de­ten­tion hear­ings.
