Herndon man charged in homicide after crash in victim’s vehicle

A man has been charged with second-degree murder and grand larceny following the death of a Leesburg, Virginia, man on Friday.

Mario R. Hernandez-Navarrate, 19, of Herndon, Virginia, was apprehended Friday after being involved in a crash in the victim’s vehicle in Fairfax County, according to a police report. He was arrested on unrelated charges and is being held without bond at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center, police said.

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call for a welfare check at a residence in the 21000 block of Evergreen Mills Road in Leesburg Friday, where 62-year-old Carroll T. Davis, Jr. was found deceased; officials determined the death was a homicide.

Police said the suspect and the victim were known to each other, and that no other persons of interest are being investigated.
