Man Pleads Guilty to Murder of 29-year-old Outside Glen Burnie Liquor Store
A 70 year old man from Annapolis pleaded guilty today to second-degree murder and use of a handgun in a crime of violence in connection to the fatal shooting of 29-year-old Darius Davon Matthews (right photo) outside a Glen Burnie liquor store, State’s Attorney Anne Colt Leitess announced.
Gregory Lydell Siscoe (left photo) entered the plea during a hearing at the Anne Arundel County Circuit Court. The State is reporedtly seeking a sentence of 30 years of incarceration at his sentencing on September 6, 2023. He continues to be held without bond.
“The defendant had been ordered by an Anne Arundel County judge to stay away from Clauss Liquors,” Leitess said. “Not only did he ignore that order, he went there with guns to defend his turf. Despite many chances to walk away from a verbal argument with the victim, he engaged in a continued confrontation with Mr. Mathews and then while standing at a safe distance himself, fired a fatal shot at Mr. Matthews. This is yet another situation where gun violence was used to resolve a petty dispute and the result is another young life taken.”
