Eulalio Tordil Pleads Guilty to Shootings, Killings in Montgomery Co. During Manhunt

WASHINGTON — A Maryland man charged with killing his estranged wife and two strangers in a May 2016 manhunt has pleaded guilty for his crimes in Montgomery County.

On Tuesday, Eulalio Tordil pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted first-degree murder in a Montgomery County courtroom.

The plea agreement would see him sentenced to life in prison.

On May 6, 2016, Tordil shot two good Samaritans who attempted to help a woman in the parking lot of Westfield Montgomery Mall, as he tried to steal her vehicle. Malcolm Winffel died; the woman and other man were injured.

Later that morning, Tordil shot and killed Claudina Molina as he tried to steal her SUV outside Giant Food on Connecticut Avenue in Aspen Hill.

Tordil faces a charge of first-degree murder in the slaying of his estranged wife Gladys Tordil, who was shot and killed outside her daughters’ high school in Prince George’s County on May 5, 2016.

Last week, The Washington Post reported Tordil was expected to plead guilty in the case.
