Maryland Man Charged in Domestic-Related Murder

A 35-year-old man has been arrested in relation to the killing of his uncle. Evidently, in early February, police officers were called to a Forestville address. They found a man who had been stabbed multiple times. After being taken to the hospital, he died from his injuries several days later.*

It appears that his nephew may have stabbed the man during an argument that got out of control in the home. In fact, the nephew was arrested at the scene of the crime and confessed that he had been involved in the stabbing of his uncle.

Initially he was charged with attempted second-degree murder. He has now been charged with first- and second-degree murder.
