A 17-year-old male was charged Saturday with stabbing a 20-year-old to death during an argument at the suspect’s Landover home, according to Prince George’s County police.
Tylee Lindale Dodson, of the 8100 block of Allendale Drive, was charged as an adult with first-degree murder and possession of a dangerous weapon. He was ordered held without bail in the Prince George’s County Detention Center; a preliminary hearing is scheduled for Sept. 13.
Police said Dodson is charged with stabbing Avery Joshua Lewis, 20, whose last known address was in District Heights. He previously lived on the same street as Dodson, court records show.
Authorities said officers were called to the Allendale Drive house about 12:30 a.m. for a disturbance and found Lewis lying outside the home suffering from several stab wounds. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
In a statement, Prince George’s County police said Lewis and Dodson got into a fight inside the home. Police said Lewis left, but Dodson allegedly “followed him outside and the fighting continued.” Police said Dodson was arrested at the scene. They did not say what started the argument. The statement says Lewis and Dodson had a romantic relationship.

Police charged Lewis with demanding money from two men and spraying them with pepper spray when they refused to give him anything.
