by Associated Press posted Apr 9 2012 6:19PM
  BALTIMORE (AP) - Maryland lottery officials say a holder of a winning Mega Millions ticket has come forward to claim a share of the record-breaking, $656 million prize.
 
     Lottery spokeswoman Carole Everett says the winner claimed the prize with the winning ticket at lottery headquarters on Monday. She says she wouldn't give any details about the winner until a news conference on Tuesday morning.
 
     Maryland's winner bought the ticket at a 7-Eleven store in Milford Mill outside Baltimore. That person will split the prize with winners in Illinois and Kansas. 
 
     Lottery officials increased the final jackpot to $656 million after tallying sales from the 44 state lotteries.
 
     Maryland has been the home of Mega Millions winners in the past. In 2007, Ellwood "Bunky" Bartlett won roughly $27 million after taxes.
