Three Virginia men have been charged in the death of a District of Columbia man who was found stabbed and strangled in his basement apartment.
Police have charged the men with first-degree murder in the June 19 death of 61-year-old Glenn Scarborough in northeast Washington.
A police affidavit said one of the suspects, 21-year-old Theodore Reginald Spencer, is the son of Scarborough's girlfriend, who was hospitalized for cancer. Police said she has since died.
The other suspects are 20-year-old Phillip Swan and 19-year-old Terrell Wilson.
A police source told News4 Scarborough had been duct taped around his head. His 92-year-old father said the victim had missed his son's wedding in Baltimore the day before. Scarborough's father spoke to Scarborough at about 10 p.m. that Saturday and learned that he had been beaten and robbed but had said he was OK and didn't need to go to the hospital.
Spencer's attorney declined to comment. Attorneys for the other two men did not return calls for comment.
