24-year-old Karlyn Serane Ramirez of Anne Arundel County, was found dead in her home while her 5-month-old child was sitting by her side.

The murder was committed in a house on the 8000 block of Stone Mill Court, around 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday. Police were called to the scene after a neighbor saw a stray dog entering the house.

The neighbor stood at the doorway and yelled, and when no one answered, she called the police. When officers arrived, they found the dead woman and the child.

Ramirez was a soldier stationed at Fort Meade. The child was found in good health. The Baltimore Medical Examiner performed an autopsy, and determined the cause of death to be gunshot wounds.
