Murder suspect arrested in Florence moved to Maryland

Timothy Virts

Timothy Virts, who was arrested last Friday in Florence, is back in Maryland tonight.

He's accused of killing the mother of his children, 36-year-old Bobbie Jo Cortez.

An amber alert was issued for Virts after police say he left Maryland with his 11 year old daughter.

Virts was found at the Colonial Inn in Florence after the co-owner of the hotel recognized him from a posting on social media.

According to Baltimore County Police, Virts is being interviewed by homicide detectives and then will be sent to the Baltimore County Detention Center to be held without bail.
