2 Plead Guilty in Rape, Killing of 16-Year-Old Baltimore Girl

Two men pleaded guilty Wednesday in the rape and killing of a 16-year-old girl in Northwest Baltimore, while a third juvenile defendant charged as an adult was headed for trial.

The guilty pleas of John Childs, 22, and Adonay Dixon, 25, shed new light on the attack on City College student Arnesha Bowers.


Prosecutors said the crime began as a plot to burglarize Bowers’ grandmother’s home. But when she discovered the men stealing items, they said, she was struck multiple times in the head with a meat tenderizer, sexually assaulted and strangled.
