Harrisburg, PA – Today, United
States Marshal Martin J. Pane announced the arrest of Khanyae Kendall; a
23-year-old woman wanted for absconding from Pennsylvania state parole
supervision. In 2018, Kendall pled guilty to homicide by vehicle
for a 2017 vehicle accident that killed a Harrisburg firefighter
responding to a house fire and was sentenced to 5-to-12 years in state
prison. On March 10, 2022, she was released under the supervision of the
Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole. On March 16th, she removed
her electronic ankle monitor and fled. A warrant was issued for her
arrest and the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force was
asked to apprehend her. This morning at about 8:30 a.m., members
of the fugitive task force arrested Kendall without incident in the
17000 block of King James Way, Gaithersburg, Maryland. She was turned
over to Montgomery County authorities pending extradition to
Pennsylvania. United States Marshal Pane stated, “It’s the
Marshals Services’ duty to help ensure that those convicted of serious
crimes are held fully accountable. It is my sincere hope that the
citizens of Harrisburg will find some measure of comfort knowing Kendall
is back in custody.”The USMS Fugitive Task Force in the Middle
District of Pennsylvania is comprised of 22 state, county, and local
police agencies throughout the district’s 33 counties, including: the
Pennsylvania Department of Corrections Fugitive Apprehension Search
Team, the Harrisburg Bureau of Police, the Pennsylvania State Police,
the Dauphin County Adult Probation Office, the Derry Township Police
Department, the Lower Paxton Township Police Department, the Steelton
