Today, 25-year-old Marquese Anthony Winston of Richmond, Virginia and 38-year-old Tonya Arnita Hayes of Atlanta, Georgia were sentenced at the Circuit Court of Baltimore City Associate Judge Robert Taylor for the November 14, 2017 murder of Locust Point native Alexander “Albo” Wroblewski during an attempted robbery. The incident happened at 1:15am on the 400 block of Lawrence St. in Locust Point.

Winston was convicted of second-degree murder and four handgun charges on April 5th and was sentenced to a forty-year prison term today. Hayes was convicted of handgun charges and was given a six-year prison term with all but four years suspended.

Hayes’ son, 21-year-old Tivontre Gatling-Mouzon of Richmond, Virginia accepted a plea deal in February, pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit armed robbery. He accepted a 20-year sentence with all but eight years suspended. Part of the plea deal was agreeing to testify in the cases against Winston and Hayes.

From WMAR Baltimore:

“We are glad that the trial and sentencing is over,” said Alex Wroblewski Sr. while reading a prepared statement in front of the court house after the sentence was read and coming to tears at the conclusion. “Nothing will bring back our son. We have, and will continue to surrender ourselves to our lord and savior Jesus Christ, to help us to live with our broken hearts. We would like to thank our family, our friends, Alex’s friends, and the community for the support they continually give us. They remind us everyday what we already knew. How special a person Alex was.”

Wroblewski was 41 years old and a bartender at Rowhouse Grille. He was a passionate Baltimore, USA, and Liverpool Football Club sports fan, as well as an active fundraiser for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Hundreds gathered at a vigil for Wroblewski outside of Francis Scott Key Elementary/Middle School on November 19, 2017.

A plaque was dedicated to Wroblewski last year at Latrobe Park. It reads:

In loving memory of Alex J. Wroblewski III AKA Albo


Beloved son and friend to all in Locust Point and “The Unofficial Mayor of South Baltimore”

“We don’t meet people by accident. They are meant to cross our path for a reason.”

“Don’t change so people will like you. Be yourself and the right people will love the real you.”
