Two additional suspects charged in Bealeton murder

A family member found the body of Kelly Marie Gray, 40, in her Bealeton apartment Thursday night.
Authorities on Saturday arrested Melody Dawn Glascock, 54, of Linden, and charged her with first-degree murder.
Fauquier detectives on Sunday charged Marie Dawn Embrey and her son, James Samuel Embrey III, both of Stephens City, with conspiracy to commit murder.
Fauquier sheriff’s detectives Sunday morning charged two more suspects in Thursday’s murder of Kelly Marie Gray in her Bealeton apartment.

James Samuel Embrey III, 20, and his mother, Marie Dawn Embrey, 40, both of Stephens City, face conspiracy to commit murder charges, Sgt. James Hartman said.

Arrested Saturday at her Linden home, alleged killer Melody Dawn Glascock, 54, also faces a new charge of conspiracy to commit murder. Authorities on Saturday charged Ms. Glascock with first-degree murder and concealing/destroying evidence.

Ms. Glascock remains in the Fauquier jail without bond.
The Embreys remain in the Northwest Regional Jail in Frederick County.

“Working with the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office, Fauquier County detectives located the two (additional) suspects overnight,” Sgt. Hartman said Sunday morning. “They were charged early this morning as part of the ongoing investigation.”

Authorities have released no information about the relationships among the suspects and Ms. Gray or the motive for her murder.

A family member found the 40-year-old’s body in her Aspen Club apartment and called 911 at 7:09 p.m. on June 18, according to Sgt. Hartman.

Fauquier sheriff’s detectives identified Ms. Glascock as the suspect, got warrants for her arrest and worked with Warren County deputies, who took her into custody Saturday morning at her Linden home “without incident,” the sergeant said.

Ms. Gray “suffered severe trauma to the torso,” Sgt. Hartman said.

The state medical examiner’s office in Manassas will “determine the exact cause and manner of death,” he added.

The Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office asks anyone with information about the case to call 540-347-3300.
