Family of man murdered at Johns Hopkins questions policies

October 26, 2017

After a woman killed her estranged husband in the ICU at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, Md., the man's family questioned the hospital's security procedures, according to an article on the Baltimore CBS website.

On Monday, a judge ordered the woman to be held without bail after authorities say she stabbed her estranged husband while the two were arguing over medical treatment for their 14-year-old son.

Family members say the two had argued previously while inside the hospital, and had a volatile incident a week ago. That dispute turned so heated, they both got kicked out. The man's brother questioned whether hospital security should have stopped them from visiting at the same time.

“They had every right to be in a room by themselves. You know, they had a child in common in the hospital at the time. So there’s nothing anyone could have done,” said Baltimore PD spokesman T.J. Smith.
