A man who police say killed his son-in-law last month in Montgomery Village is still in the hospital a month later.

Michael Ewell, 57, was accused of fatally shooting his son-in-law, 43-year-old Christopher Repp, on Oct. 24 around 10 p.m. in the 10200 block of Wild Apple Circle, police said.

Police said they found Repp and Ewell with gunshot wounds in an upstairs bedroom. Repp died at the scene and Ewell was taken to the hospital with serious injuries that were not life-threatening, police said.

Additional information about Ewell’s condition was not available on Friday.

Police said they are investigating the shooting as a domestic-related homicide because the two men lived together.

Officer Rick Goodale, a police spokesman, said in an interview Monday morning that Ewell remains in the hospital under police guard. Goodale said there is an outstanding warrant for Ewell’s arrest.


“When he gets medically discharged, he will go into police custody, where we’ll serve the arrest warrant on him,” Goodale said Friday.

Ewell’s case would then go through the court system, Goodale said.
