Authorities say a Waldorf man has been charged with fatally stabbing his father-in-law in La Plata.
The Charles County Sheriff's Office said in a news release Sunday that 39-year-old Deangelo Hemsley was arrested shortly after the stabbing on Saturday night.
The sheriff's office says Hemsley had been separated from his wife, who was living with her father, 71-year-old John Yates. The office says Hemsley arrived at the house looking for his 12-year-old daughter and attacked Yates, stabbing him several times.
The office says Yates forced his daughter at knife point into a car, but she was able to escape. Hemsley was then arrested as officers say he was trying to leave the scene.
No attorney for Hemsley was listed in online court records.
