Two killings in Oxon Hill appear unrelated

A woman was fatally shot Saturday night in Prince George’s County, about one block from where a man was killed in a stabbing Friday evening, authorities said.

A police spokesman said there are no signs that the two incidents were related.

The Saturday night shooting occurred about 8:30 p.m. in the 1000 block of Marcy Avenue in Oxon Hill. Kaya Dejuna Wilson, 29, was pronounced dead inside her apartment, police said.

The evening before, Jakari Butler, 20, of Sachem Drive in Oxon Hill, was found in the same block on Marcy Avenue after a slashing was reported there around 5:30 p.m., police said. He was later pronounced at a hospital.

Police ask anyone with information about either crime to call the Prince George’s County Police Department’s Homicide Unit at (301) 772-4925. Callers wishing to remain anonymous may call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).
