PRINCE GEORGE, Va. — A 67-year-old Baltimore man is in custody following a double stabbing that left one person dead at a Virginia motel Sunday night.

Just after 9:45pm, police in Prince George County Virginia were called to the Baymont Inn at 5380 Oaklawn Boulevard.

Arriving officers found 45-year-old Willie Walden Jr. and a woman in the courtyard each suffering from several stab wounds.
