Office of the State's Attorney for Baltimore City

A Baltimore City jury convicted Don Pulley and Terrence Rollins-Bey yesterday of second-degree murder, use of a handgun in a crime of violence, wearing, carrying, and transporting a handgun, theft, conspiracy to commit theft, second-degree arson, conspiracy to commit arson, and being felons in possession of firearms for murdering a man in East Baltimore last summer.

On June 24, 2012, an officer found Deangelo Bess in the 1000 block of N. Central Avenue suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to the head and one to the back. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Pulley and Rollins-Bey were identified through video surveillance footage. They were seen on tape purchasing fuel from a gas station and then using it to set the victim’s car on fire.

Scheduled for sentencing on October 22, 2013, both men face sentences of over 120 years in prison.  

Assistant State’s Attorney Charles Blomquist prosecuted the case.
