4 people arrested after body was found in burning vehicle

March 22, 2018

WOODBRIDGE, Va. (AP) — Police in Virginia say four people have been arrested after a body was found in a burning vehicle.

A Prince William County police news release says 23-year-old Erick Alexander Contreras Navarro and 19-year-old Denis Ludwin Espinal Alvares were charged with murder and arrested Tuesday in North Carolina.

Police say 21-year-old Manuel Enrique Robles Lopez was arrested Friday and charged with murder - accessory after the fact. Police say a 17-year-old boy was arrested Saturday and charged with murder.

It is unclear if they have lawyers.

The body was found March 15 at Veterans Park in Woodbridge. Detectives preliminarily identified the victim from information in the investigation, and the medical examiner’s office is analyzing DNA to confirm it.

The name will be released once confirmed, and a next of kin has been notified.
