Police Identify Body of 38-Week Pregnant Woman Discovered in White Oak Apartment

by Patrick Herron

Officers had obtained a search warrant for Moore’s apartment, located at 11235 Oak Leaf Drive, following the shooting death of 61-year-old Ayalew Wondimu, an employee of the Dash In Convenience Store, located in the 11100 block of New Hampshire Ave. Middleton was found in the bedroom, in an advanced stage of decomposition and transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) for autopsy. The OCME determined that Middleton was approximately 38-weeks pregnant at the time of her death and that the fetus, a boy, would have lived had Middleton delivered at that time. The autopsy also revealed that Middleton had been shot multiple times.

A warrant has been filed, charging 31-year-old Moore with first-degree murder for Middleton, first-degree murder for the death of a viable fetus, and a crime of violence against a pregnant person. He is currently being held without bond for the murder of Wondimu.
