A teenager has been arrested and charged with the slaying of a man who was found stabbed to death Jan. 8 in Langley Park, Prince George's County police said Friday.

Oscar Rosales-Madrid, 16, of Langley Park, was charged with first- and second-degree murder in the death of 30-year-old Alejandro Marcos Diaz Vasquez, authorities said.

Deputy Chief Gary Cunningham, who commands the Prince George's County Police Department's Bureau of Support Services, said a witness tipped investigators to Rosales-Madrid's involvement in the killing, and he later confessed.

Cunningham said investigators were not sure why Rosales-Madrid stabbed Diaz Vasquez or of the relationship between the two.Rosales-Madrid gave conflicting stories to investigators, he said, though he declined to specify what those stories were.

This is an awful tragedy. I am sorry for the family and friends of the victim.

As for Nyallas: your post is callous and bigoted.
