Murder suspect is

in custody in N.H.

A man wanted in the fatal stabbing of a 24-year-old man in Fairfax County in December has been taken into custody in New Hampshire, police said.

Endless Taylor, 24, has been charged with murder in the killing of 24-year-old Luis Bonilla on Dec. 1, Fairfax County police said. He was arrested in Hudson, N.H., after a police got a tip that he might be in the Lowell, Mass., area.

Fairfax County police officers were on routine patrol when they found Bonilla suffering from trauma to the upper body near a wooded area in the 7100 block of Fairchild Drive about 11:15 p.m. on Dec. 1, police said. Officers tried to resuscitate Bonilla, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Taylor was later identified as a suspect in the case. Taylor and Bonilla were acquaintances, and police said they are investigating a disagreement between the two in the weeks leading up to the killing.

Officials: Man posed

as a physician

A man who prosecutors say posed as a physician and treated patients in southeastern Virginia has been arrested in Kansas.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Virginia said in a news release that Vishal Patel, 30, of Glen Allen, was arrested Tuesday by Drug Enforcement Administration agents in Overland Park, Kansas.

According to an indictment, Patel has never been licensed to practice medicine in Virginia. Prosecutors say Patel stole identifying information of a licensed physician and obtained documents that fraudulently said Patel was a doctor.

The indictment says Patel used the fake documents to get a job at a health center in Newport News, Va.

Prosecutors say Patel saw patients, conducted and ordered tests and exams, and prescribed medication.
