SALISBURY, Md. - Police say they have made an arrest in connection to fatal Salisbury home invasion, that happened in April. Maryland State Police say 35-year-old Paul Tatem, of Quantico, has been indicted and charged with first and second degree murder, two counts of armed robbery, two counts of robbery, two counts of first and second degree assault, attempted first and second degree murder, first degree burglary, theft between $1,000 and $10,000, two counts of wearing/carrying a dangerous weapon with intent to injure, unlawful taking of a motor vehicle, and felon in possession of a firearm.

The charges stem from an April 16th incident, where 72-year-old Donald Mariner was found dead in his home on Pemberton Drive. His housemate, a 50-year-old man, had also been assaulted during the apparent home invasion. Autopsy results apparently showed that Mariner was murdered and died from blunt force injuries. Mariner's housemate survived the alleged attack. Police say the investigation into this murder and assault is on-going, and more arrests are possible.

Tatem has been behind bars since July 1st, when he was arrested on a parole retake and theft warrants. He has been held without bond at the Wicomico County Detention Center since that time, and will remain there.

MSP says multiple departments and units have assisted in the investigation, which led to the Grand Jury Indictment, including Wicomico Bureau of Investigation, Salisbury Police Department, Wicomico County Sheriff's Office, Wicomico CAC, Wicomico County Narcotics Task Force, and Maryland State Police units including the Gang Enforcement Unit, Criminal Enforcement Division, Crime Scene Unit, State Apprehension Team, and Salisbury Barrack.
