Delaware Man Indicted For Murder for Hire

Greenbelt, Maryland - A federal grand jury has indicted Marquis Antwan Mack, a/k/a “Ice,” and “Goldie,” age 31, of Dover, Delaware, today for use of the telephone and interstate travel in the commission of a murder for hire.
The indictment was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein; Special Agent in Charge William P. McMullan of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives - Baltimore Field Division; and Chief Paul M. Bernat of the Dover Police Department.     
The indictment alleges that from September 3, 2014 through September 12, 2014, Mack used his cellular telephone and traveled from Delaware to Maryland to arrange a murder for hire.  According to indictment Mack allegedly agreed to pay $1,000 for the murder. 
Mack faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison for use of the telephone and interstate travel in the commission of a murder for hire.  An initial appearance has not yet been scheduled. Mack remains detained. 
An indictment is not a finding of guilt.  An individual charged by indictment is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty at some later criminal proceedings. 
United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein praised ATF Baltimore and its Delaware Field Offices, and the Dover Police Department, for their work in the investigation.  Mr. Rosenstein thanked Assistant United States Attorneys Daniel C. Gardner and Leah J. Bressack, who are prosecuting the case.
