Olney killings suspect held without bond

The man charged with the murder of two men in Olney was ordered held without bond Thursday afternoon.

Prosecutor Peter Feeney called Rohan J. Goodlett, 35, an “extreme danger to society” during the hearing before Montgomery County District Court Judge Barry A. Hamilton.

He said Goodlett killed his 81-year-old neighbor, Nazir Ahmed, shooting him “execution style” in the back of the head in his home. Goodlett is also charged in the death of Punyasara W. Palkumbure Gedara, 41, who was walking home form the Subway shop where he worked.

Goodlett could be seen via video from the county jail. For a portion of the hearing, he held his right hand over his heart.

Public defender Mary K. Siegfried has been appointed Goodlett’s attorney. She said she might eventually petition that bond be granted.
