14-year-old arrested for fatal Oxon Hill stabbing

OXON HILL, Md. (WUSA9) -- A 14-year-old man is accused of fatally stabbing an 18-year-old man in Oxon Hill early Thursday morning, Prince George's County police said.

The homicide happened in the 6300 block of Livingston Road around 12:40 a.m., according to police.

A man was found suffering from a stab wound in the upper body. He was taken to the hospital where he died from his injuries. The victim was later identified as Jerome Toy of Livingston Road in Oxon Hill.

Police say a preliminary investigation found Toy was stabbed inside an apartment building on Livingston Road. Toy ran from the building after he was stabbed and collapsed in the roadway, detectives believe.

On Thursday night, police announced they arrested Ludwin Lemus-Torres, 14, in connection to the stabbing. Police say he will be charged as an adult with first-degree murder and other charges.

Detectives believe Lemus-Torres stabbed Toy after a dispute between them escalated.
