UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) — Prince George’s County Police have charged three youths, including a 13-year-old, with first-degree murder in the stabbing death of man in Langley Park.
Police say the three, ages 13, 14 and 15, are charged in the death of 19-year-old Akinleye Warner of Langley Park on Saturday.
Fifteen-year-old Nelson Rivera-Anaya of Lanham and 14-year-old Angel Contreras of Silver Spring were charged as adults on Monday. They are being held without bond.
The 13-year-old is charged as a juvenile and is being held at Cheltenham Youth Facility.
Officers say Warner went to the Northwest Branch Hiker Biker Trail with an acquaintance who intended to conduct a drug deal. Warner was fatally stabbed, and police say the suspects committed the crime to gain notoriety with a gang.
