2 arrested after 17-year-old girl fatally stabbed in Woodbridge

A teenage girl was killed and two men were injured after a stabbing Tuesday night in Woodbridge, Virginia.

Two people linked to the deadly stabbing were arrested Wednesday, Prince William County police said: Jennifer Janeth Mejia-Recillas, 19, and Enrique Miguel Stock, 20, both of Woodbridge.

Officers responded to a report of a stabbing around 11:45 p.m. in the area of Robinson Court and Harrison Street. They learned a fight had taken place between people who knew each other. Police said three people were stabbed: a 17-year-old girl and two 26-year-old men.

The girl was taken to a hospital, where she died from her injuries.

The two men were also taken to a hospital and are expected to survive, police said.

NBC Washington reported that Mejia-Recillas had stabbed the three outside a house due to the exchange of “words of disrespect.”

Mejia-Recillas and Stock then fled the scene in a vehicle that officers later found abandoned in the area of Fir Court. Police searched the area using K-9 units and helicopter assistance.

The pair was eventually found in their home on Brentwood Court, where they were arrested.

Mejia-Recillas has been charged with murder and aggravated malicious wounding. Stock has been charged with accessory after the fact and assault and battery. Both are being held without bond.
