The Prince George’s County State’s Attorney’s Office announced that Anthony Antwan Kromah of Hyattsville has pleaded guilty to charges of accessory relating to a double homicide that occurred last year.

On Thursday, 19-year-old Kromah admitted to being an accessory to James Ramiah Logan, who allegedly shot Deputy Sheriff James V. Arnaud and Deputy Sheriff Elizabeth L. Magruder while they were serving a Petitioner for Emergency Evaluation to Logan Aug. 29, 2002.

Kromah admitted Thursday that he helped Logan hide the murder weapon in a nearby cemetery after the incident.

Deputy State’s Attorney Bob Dean handled the prosecution.

"It is a first step in our efforts to hold those responsible in the murders of our brave men and women in law enforcement," he said.

The sentencing guidelines for this offense range from three months to 18 months. Logan will face trial for two counts of first-degree murder in June. Kromah is expected to testify in that trial.
