A father and daughter have been arrested in Maryland and charged with murder, according to authorities.

The two were charged in the death of a man who had been in “an ongoing dispute” with the adult daughter, Anne Arundel County police said Friday.

Police said Eric G. Banks, 48, of Camberwell Court in Baltimore and his daughter Erica T. Banks, 27, of Green Acres Drive in Glen Burnie were charged in the death of Darren D. Bell, 26, of Baltimore, who had been shot and stabbed. He was found Jan. 27 in a wooded area near Marley Neck Boulevard in Glen Burnie.
