Deputies: Boonsboro Stabbings Stem from Domestic Dispute


WASHINGTON COUNTY, Md. - Deputies have charged a Boonsboro man with first-degree murder, following a double stabbing Thursday night. 

Two people were stabbed, a man and a woman. The female victim died from her injuries at Meritus Medical Center, while the other male victim is in serious but stable condition at the Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. 

Officials with the Washington County Sheriff's Office say this violent crime isn't something that's normal for the typically quiet town of Boonsboro. Investigators tell WHAG it appears this incident stemmed from a domestic dispute. 

Deputies say the stabbing took place on the 200 block of Saint Paul Street.

Deputies say Tylena Ann Sigler has died, and another male victim was last listed in serious but stable condition. 

"Upon arrival deputies located two victims. Male and female victims. Both suffered multiple stab wounds," said Carly Hose of the Washington County Sheriff's Office.

While searching the area after 9:42 p.m., the suspect identified as Thomas Hungerford Jr., of Boonsboro, Md., was found walking around about three miles from the crime scene on Young Avenue.

Officials with the Washington County Sheriff's Office are utilizing recruits from the Hagerstown Community College Police Academy to assist with the investigation.

"We are still investigating, but at this point it appears that it is domestic in nature," said Hose.

Hungerford Junior is charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, and two counts of attempted second-degree murder.
