    A woman was stabbed to death in an attack inside a Fairfax County restaurant.

    Police said it happened just before 7 p.m. Wednesday at a Vietnamese restaurant on Spring Garden Drive in Springfield, Va.

    "A 40-year-old man entered the restaurant, assaulted a 37-year-old woman that he knew, and he subsequently harmed himself," said Fairfax County Public Information Officer Tawny Wright. 

    Wright said Tieu L. Nguyet, of Falls Church, was pronounced dead at the scene, and the suspect, Lam Dang, of Springfield, was taken into custody and then hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

    Dang was charged with murder.
