Dover Motel No Place To Relax For Maryland Murder Suspect

The Dover Police Department and U.S. Marshals First State Fugitive Task Force (assisted by USMS Capital Area Regional Task Force) arrested a murder suspect from Maryland on Saturday morning, according to Public Information Office Sergeant Mark Hoffman.

Hoffman said information was obtained that Ryshon Kelly, 23, was at the Relax Inn, located at 640 S. DuPont Highway in Dover on Saturday, March 12th, 2022. At approximately 8:15 a.m., officers executed a search warrant at the motel and took Kelly into custody without incident.

Kelly was committed to SCI pending his extradition to Maryland for multiple charges stemming from a fatal stabbing that took place on Douglas Street in Cambridge, Maryland on October 24, 2020.
