An 18-year-old Sterling man has been charged with murder in connection with the slaying of a man found dead in a wooded area in Herndon last month, Fairfax County police said.
Moises Dominguez, of the 1000 block of Ironwood Road, was arrested on Wednesday for the killing of 22-year-old William Adolfo Rivas Leiva, who was found dead on March 16 near Folly Lick Stream. Leiva was from the Herndon area.
Police were called to the wooded area around 12:30 p.m. on that day for a report of a body. Leiva was found suffering from trauma to the upper body. Detectives believe the killing may be gang-related.
Additional details were not immediately available.
