Manuel F. Garces, of the 6700 block of Kenmont Place in Springfield, was charged with murder, Fairfax police spokesman Eddy Azcarate said. Ives died from trauma to the upper body. Azcarate said an autopsy will determine whether the injuries were inflicted with hands and feet or a weapon.

Garces and Ives knew each other, Azcarate said, though “to call them friends might be a little strong.” He said police were confident from early in the investigation that the community was not in danger.

Azcarate said he could not identify a motive for the slaying..

Ives was found dead in the 5400 block of Broadmoor Street just before 2 a.m. Sunday. Azcarate said Ives lived in the area where he was killed. Neighbors said Ives’ girlfriend lived across the street from the house where his body was found.
