East New Market man found guilty of murdering officer 20 years ago

CAMBRIDGE, Md. – After 20 years, the man who killed a correctional officer after his shift has finally been found guilty.

On Monday 47-year-old John Ingersoll was found guilty on all charges stemming from the 2001 murder of former Eastern Correctional Officer Gregory Collins. Those charges include both first and second degree murder.

Back in June of 2001 Ingersoll shot and killed Collins while he was driving home after his shift at ECI. That caused the car to swerve off the road and hit a tree. The case had gone cold, up until Ingersoll was arrested in 2019.
