A 19-year-old college student who had starred in football at a Northern Virginia high school was found stabbed to death Friday in Fairfax County, authorities said.
County police said a suspect was arrested and was charged with murder Saturday afternoon.
The victim, Zavier O. Stringfellow, of the Manassas area, was found about 7 p.m. in a minivan that had crashed into a barrier in the Vienna area at the end of a service road off Chain Bridge Road near Glengyle Drive, police said.
The suspect was identified as Johnny E. Bonilla, 22, of Catharpin Valley Drive in Gainesville.
The victim and suspect did not know each other before Friday evening, the police said. But they had planned to meet then and apparently did so, police said.
“There was a struggle, and the victim was stabbed,” police said.
It could not be learned why the meeting was arranged, or what led to the struggle.
