A Waldorf teen, accused in the Oct. shooting of a couple in his neighborhood, is facing the possibility of life in prison.

Joshua Terrell Mebane was indicted Monday for the murder of Teresa Bass and the attempted murder of her husband. Bass was shot while walking her dog on Oct. 26, 2012. Her husband, Jerry Bass, was also shot multiple times.

Mebane is also charged with multiple counts of use of a handgun in the commission of a crime of violence and possessing a handgun under the age of 21.

If he is convicted on all counts, Mebane faces a maximum of two life sentences, plus 68 years.

Mebane has also been named a suspect in the Nov. murder of Quadar Muhammad. Linda Bury, 17, of Parkton is also accused in that case.

Police say the couple entered Muhammad's cab at the Greyhound bus terminal and asked to be driven to a school. Police say once they arrived, Mebane shot Muhammad in the head.

The car was later found on fire; Muhammad's body was inside. A witness reported to police that Bury had talked about having killed a cab driver with her boyfriend.

Mebane is currently being held in a Washington, D.C. jail for charges related to that case. Mebane will stand trial in D.C. first.
