    A man stabbed his stepbrother to death inside a Leesburg, Virginia, home Monday morning, police said.

    A woman ran into the police department's headquarters at 12:25 a.m. to report a stabbing at a home across the street. When officers got to the home, they found 27-year-old Mario Arturo Ochoa Robles with two stab wounds to the chest. 

    Police say a second man and woman were also inside the home. Investigators believe the suspect and victim were involved in an altercation before the stabbing.  

    The victim was pronounced dead at an area hospital. 

    Sergio Ramon Zuniga Robles, 34, was charged with first-degree murder and is being held without bond.

    This is the city's first homicide of the year.
