Ronald D. Roldan, 42, formerly of Loudoun County, has entered a plea of guilty to second-degree murder. The case has been set for sentencing on February 21, 2023, at 9:00 a.m. This case stems from the January 29, 2011, disappearance of Bethany Decker.
“On behalf of Loudoun County and our office, I extend my deepest condolences to the family of Bethany Decker. We appreciate their patience and support,” Commonwealth’s Attorney Buta Biberaj stated. “We are grateful for the efforts of Detective Mark Bush and our partnership with the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office. Our offices spent thousands of hours, including nights and weekends, to build the best case possible, which led to this resolution. We are proud to bring justice for Bethany,” said Biberaj.
This case was prosecuted by Senior Assistant Alexis Downing, Deputy Michele L. Burton, and Chief Deputy Shaniqua Clark Nelson.
