Santos Felipe Reyes-Valle, 38, has been arrested and charged with multiple counts of murder following the death of Jose Pedro Hernandez last month.

Shortly before 9:45 p.m. on Wednesday, May 17, members of the Frederick Police Department and paramedics were called to the parking lot of a business on North McCain Drive to investigate a reported assault.

Upon arrival, officers found Hernandez, a Frederick resident, suffering from stab wounds.

During the subsequent investigation, police identified Reyes-Valle as a suspect and he was arrested without incident.

Reyes-Valle was charged with first-degree and second-degree murder and is being held without bond.

The sheriff's office made note that Reyes-Valle was placed on an Immigration Detainer-Notice of Action, representing the sixth identified in the past two weeks.

“Within the last week, the 287(g) Program at the Frederick County Adult Detention Center has proven its worth,” Major Michael Cronise, Assistant Warden said in a statement. “We have successfully identified six noncitizens who will start the deportation process as soon as their time served is complete in the U.S.

“This program ensures these hardened criminals are not put back out on the streets of Frederick County or any other city in the United States.”

The investigation into the stabbing is ongoing.
