Allen Wolf, the public defender representing Tessier, said his client is innocent of the charges against him. “Although he has made mistakes in his personal life, he cared deeply about Laura Wallen and never would have physically hurt her,” Wolf said.

On Sept. 4, a family member of Wallen reported her missing. The popular 31-year-old high school teacher, who lived in the northern part of Montgomery County, hadn’t been seen for days by family members. And they couldn’t reach her on her phone.

Police conducted an intense search for Wallen, all the while talking to her longtime on-again, off-again boyfriend, Tessier. They learned that he had another girlfriend to whom he was engaged, but neither she nor Wallen knew about Tessier’s dual relationships.

On Sept. 11, police officials held a news conference appealing for help finding Wallen. They invited Tessier to attend, even as their suspicions of him deepened. When asked questions by reporters, Tessier answered in front of a bank of TV cameras.

“Laura, if you’re listening,” he said, “it doesn’t matter what’s happened. It doesn’t matter what type of trouble. There’s nothing we can’t fix together.”

Two days later, police charged him with her murder. They alleged that he led her to a field in the Damascus area, shot her in the back of the head and buried her body. Police found the body, which was taken to the state’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy.

Court records filed Thursday did not include a charge related to Wallen’s unborn child. In Maryland, it is possible to charge someone with murder or manslaughter of a fetus. In such cases, however, the fetus must be viable, meaning potentially able to live outside the womb, according to Maryland law and several attorneys.
