FAIRFAX, Va. - A college football player in Virginia found fatally stabbed is being mourned, and Fairfax County police have made an arrest in his killing.
Authorities have arrested 22-year-old Johnny Bonilla, of Gainesville, in the death of Zavier O. Stringfellow. Police say Stringfellow was stabbed during a meeting with Bonilla.
The 19-year-old Stringfellow, of Manassas, was found dead Friday in a minivan in the Vienna area.
