BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Two teen boys, a 14-year-old and 13-year-old, have been charged in connection with the fatal stabbing of a homeless man last month.
Prince George’s County Police say 14-year-old Elias Portillo of Adelphi is being charged as an adult with first and second degree murder. He is in the custody of the Department of Corrections.
The 13-year-old is being charged with first and second degree murder as a juvenile, and has not been identified. He is in the custody of the Cheltenham Youth Detention Facility.
Police found the body of Francisco Sagastizado in a wooded area near the 7800 block of West Park Drive in Adelphi around 8:10 p.m. July 27.
Investigators say it appears Sagastizado was stabbed when he refused the boys’ demands for money.
