Michelina Goodwin Case

A Maryland jury convicted a woman this week of killing and dismembering her boyfriend and dumping the remains in various locations.

Michelina Goodwin, 46, of Great Mills, was convicted of second-degree murder, use of a firearm in commission of a felony and the unauthorized disposal of a body in the death of 50-year-old James Volodimir Nalborczyk, following an eight-day trial, prosecutors said Thursday.

Nalborczyk’s family first reported him missing on Dec. 21, 2022, saying they last saw him on Dec. 7 of that year, the St. Mary’s County State’s Attorney’s office said.

Weeks later, the case later developed into a homicide investigation and Goodwin was identified as a suspect. While being questioned by investigators in January 2023, she said she and Nalborczyk got into a fight at her home and that she accidentally shot and killed him.

She then admitted to dismembering his body and disposing of the remains in remote parts of St. Mary’s and Charles counties, authorities said.

“This horrifying crime shocked the community and caused unimaginable pain to the victim’s family,” said State’s Attorney Jaymi Sterling in a statement. “Over eight days, the victim’s family and the jury heard the graphic circumstances surrounding the victim’s final moments and gruesome post-mortem mutilation. The Defendant’s gutless decisions deprived the family of a proper burial.”

Goodwin faces up to 61 years in prison. She is being held without bail pending a sentencing hearing.

Senior Assistant State’s Attorneys Donna C. Pettersen and Jeffrey R. Maylor prosecuted the case on behalf of the citizens of St. Mary’s County.

1/19/2024: On December 21, 2022, a report was made to the Maryland State Police Leonardtown Barrack that James Volodimir Nalborczyk, 50 was missing.

The family stated that sometime after last seeing Nalborczyk on December 7, 2022, they spoke to a Michelina Desiree Goodwin, 45, of Great Mills, who was reportedly Nalborczyk’s girlfriend. Goodwin allegedly told the family that she was going to break up with Nalborczyk, and he left town for Virginia in a company work truck. After an extensive investigation, Investigators determined that Nalborczyk was not simply missing, but had been murdered, and Goodwin was identified as the primary suspect in that murder investigation.

On January 18, 2023, Investigators spoke to Goodwin, who stated that on December 11, 2022, she was at her residence on Saint Joseph’s Circle, in Great Mills, with James Nalborczyk and Larry Joseph Murphy, 40, of Great Mills. She said that during an altercation she retrieved a firearm from behind the door of her bedroom and pointed it at Nalborczyk. She said that the gun went off, striking Nalborczyk in the back and killing him. She said she then enlisted the help of Murphy to assist her in disposing of Nalborczyk’s deceased body from her residence which she described to Investigators in detail.

It is believed that the disposal of Nalborczyk’s remains occurred on December 17, 2022, and investigators located portions of Nalborczyk’s remains in the area of Lexington Park Maryland, as well as the area of Nanjemoy.

Goodwin also told Investigators of various ways that Murphy helped her hide and destroy evidence of the murder after it had occurred.

Larry Joseph Murphy was then interviewed by Investigators on 1/18/2023. Murphy stated that he was at his residence on Saint Joseph’s Circle with James Nalborczyk and Michelina Goodwin on December 11, 2022. Murphy stated he was with Goodwin and Nalborczyk before going downstairs for a brief time.

Murphy attempted to enter the area where Goodwin and Nalborczyk were in the house when Goodwin told Murphy to go back downstairs. Murphy stated that he went outside of the house and did not witness Nalborczyk being shot. Murphy also said that he never saw Nalborczyk again, and denied helping Goodwin dispose of Nalborczyk’s remains.
