Two Dead in Murder-Suicide

Two brothers were found shot to death in a Woodbridge townhouse Wednesday night in what Prince William County police are calling a murder-suicide.

The bodies of Naveen Jain, 23, and Sachin Jain, 21, were found by their mother in the basement about 6:15 p.m., police said.

Police believe that domestic incidents at the home had escalated earlier in the afternoon. Police last responded to the home for a domestic incident a year ago.

Body Identified, Suspect Arrested

Prince William police yesterday identified a man whose body was dumped in a wooded lot Wednesday and arrested a Manassas man in his slaying.

Sean Walker Hall, 40, of the 8100 block of Spruce Street was being held without bond yesterday. Police said he killed Vincent Akins, 45, of Stonewall Road, after the two had an argument about drugs that escalated into a fight.

A resident found Atkins's body while doing yardwork, police said. Police are awaiting autopsy results to determine how Atkins was killed.
