Arrest Made In Dagsboro Murder

Posted: Updated:

DAGSBORO, Del. – Detectives from the Delaware State Police Homicide Unit have arrested a woman for the September homicide of Harold H. Medes 3rd, 53.

Sharon K. Jester, 51, was taken into custody Friday and charged with murder first degree and possession of a deadly weapon during the commission on a felony.
 
47 ABC covered the story last fall, when officials began investigating Medes' death after a call came in at 6 p.m. on Sept. 23. Troopers responded to a residence in the 30000 block of Power Plant Road and found Medes suffering from stab wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
 
Homicide detectives conducted a lengthy investigation, including a number of witness interviews and examination of physical evidence. Detectives now believe a woman who had been living with Medes allegedly stabbed him during an argument.

Jester is being held without bail at Sussex Correctional Institute.
