Man charged in fatal Silver Spring stabbing

By Washington Post Editors

Montgomery County police have made an arrest after a fatal stabbing in Silver Spring.

Twenty-five-year-old Alexander Chambers of Silver Spring is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 24-year-old Merlin Recinos.

The victim was found dead on the lawn outside a home early Saturday morning. Chambers was arrested Saturday night.

Police have not revealed a motive for the slaying. Chambers is being held without bond and will have a bond review Monday.

According to online court records, Chambers has been charged previously with drug and gun possession, but prosecutors did not pursue the case.

The face and eyes say it all...F-U and "I am a killer." Well tough guy, guess what, maybe you'll meet a guy 8 feet tall hard as metal, where he'll disrepect you, making you sit bare bottom on his plate, in the last seconds before your miserable "life" ends. Have a nice death....murderer.

Chambers has a better chance of getting convicted in Montgomery County, compared to PG.

PG County prosecutors and police homicide unit just are not as good as their Montgomery County counterparts.

Another black thug preying on a brown victim. Sad, but hardly unusual.

This thug has danced to the rain drop several times without getting wet. This time there will be no way out. I hope mama don't come and say "my kid is a good kid".
