ROCKVILLE, Md. — Prosecutors will likely concede police violated the Miranda rights of the man charged with fatally shooting two people in Montgomery County last May — the day after he allegedly shot and killed his wife.
Eulalio Tordil is charged, but still unindicted In Prince George’s County, in the killing of his wife, Gladys, who had filed several protective orders against her husband.
In a status hearing Thursday in Circuit Court, State’s Attorney John McCarthy told Judge Sharon Burrell his office is leaning toward acknowledging Tordil’s questioning was improper.
“We likely will concede a Miranda violation for voluntariness,” said McCarthy.
After the hearing, McCarthy would not discuss specifics of Tordil’s questioning.
“I think everybody knows this from watching TV, it’s improper to continue to talk to someone, after they’ve made a request for a lawyer,” McCarthy told reporters.
