Man charged with murdering his mother outside Rockville church
Detectives allege McGuigan fatally wounded his mother around 6:00 PM outside of the church with an unidentified "cutting type of instrument." Witnesses who heard the victim's screams say they saw McGuigan standing over his mother, who was laying on the ground at that point, and then fleeing in a Honda sedan.
Police found McGuigan's Honda abandoned at Falls Road Local Park forty minutes after the alleged assault took place. After obtaining an arrest warrant for McGuigan, County officers closed in on him at a Rockville gas station Saturday morning around 7:00 AM, successfully taking McGuigan into custody.
