Tordil sentenced to two life sentences

Eulalio Tordil MCPUPPER MARLBORO – A 64-year-old Adelphi man who was a former federal officer was sentenced by a Prince George’s County Judge last Wednesday to two life sentences for fatally shooting his wife in May 2016 at a Prince George's County High School in Calverton.

On May 5, 2016, Eulalio Tordil shot and killed his wife, Gladys Tordil, along with another person in the parking lot of High Point High School as she was waiting to pick up her daughter. 

The next day, Tordil went on a shooting spree in Bethesda at the Westfield Montgomery Mall, shooting and killing 45-year-old Malcoma Winffell and also shooting two men as he attempted to carjack a car. About an hour later Tordil shot and killed 65-year-old Claudina Molina at the Aspen Hill Shopping Center as he attempted to carjack another car.

“You should not see or breathe a free bit of air for the rest of your life,” said Prince George’s County Judge Leo Green, Jr. during the sentencing. “It’s overwhelming the reasons to show no mercy.” 

After Tordil was sentenced, Prince George's County State's Attorney Angela Alsobrooks also spoke.

“Mr. Tordil is a ruthless man who is obsessed with himself. He is evil and he is a killer,” she said.

On Sept. 1, Montgomery County Circuit Judge Richard Jordan sentenced Tordil to two life sentences for the shootings in Montgomery County.
