Parker turned himself in without incident Wednesday evening.
Wise, 46, of no permanent address, was found in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 5500 block of Harper’s Farm Road yesterday after a call was made around 4:30 p.m. from a neighbor who heard his car alarm and saw the victim bleeding outside. The victim later died at Howard County General Hospital.
Detectives are now saying Parker, 53, of no permanent address, and Wise were seen by witnesses getting into an altercation in that area, where a group was hanging around a parked silver van.
Several members of the group, including Parker, then drove off in the van, which investigators found today on Columbia Road with blood stains on the fender. The owner of the van was not charged with a crime.
