Two men are now charged in connection to the homicide of a man whose body was left on a Dale City street Tuesday.
Prince William County Police arrested Juan Carlos Flores, 25, of no fixed address, on Wednesday in connection to the death of Barbaro Lupe Alonso-Irahola, 47, of no fixed address. The victim sustained trauma to his face from a blunt object and a knife, police said.
Police are still looking for another unidentified person who allegedly helped Flores dump Alonso-Irahola's body in a Dale City neighborhood.
They also charged Jose Miguel Diaz, 28, of Westminster Lane in Dale City, who owned the van used to dump Alonso-Irahola's body, Officer Jonathan Perok, a spokesman for the department, said in a press release. However, Flores reported used the van without Diaz's consent.
"The investigation revealed that the accused, Flores, was involved in the murder of the victim. The second suspect, Diaz, aided Flores after the murder took place but is not the second suspect seen on Cardin Pl by witnesses," Perok said in the release.
Flores is charged with first-degree murder and unauthorized use of a vehicle. Diaz is charged with accessory after the fact to murder. Court dates for both are set for Feb. 20.
Police have classified the case as a murder.
