Alexander Kinyua of Joppatowne, Maryland Charged With First Degree Murder

Joppatowne, MD - Harford County Sheriff’s Office detectives have charged Alexander Kimanthi Kinyua, age 21, of 535 Terrapin Terrace, Joppatowne MD with 1st degree murder, 1st degree assault and 2nd degree assault. Kinyua, a native of Kenya, is charged with the murder of 37-year-old Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie of the same address. Agyei-Kodie had been missing since Friday, May 25, 2012. In the course of locating the missing man, detectives obtained evidence that led them to believe a crime had been committed.

The detectives executed a search and seize warrant of the residence in the early morning hours of Wednesday, May 30, and found partial human remains they believe to be of Agyei-Kodie inside the residence and in a dumpster located off of Trimble Rd. The medical examiner will examine the remains to officially identify them as those of Agyei-Kodie. It is not immediately known the connection between the two men.

Kinyua, who is a student at Morgan State University, remains at the Harford County Detention Center awaiting an initial appearance before the District Court Commissioner.

In an entirely different case, Kinyua was charged on May 20, 2012 [less than two weeks ago] with 1st degree assault and reckless endangerment after being involved in a fight in a dormitory room at Morgan State University. He posted bail and was released from jail on May 23rd. That case is still pending.
