    A 17-year-old girl was stabbed to death in a Northern Virginia neighborhood late Tuesday, and a 19-year-old woman is charged with the crime.

    The victim, who police did identify, was killed in Woodbridge, Prince William County police said Wednesday. Two 26-year-old men also were stabbed but are expected to survive.

    Jennifer Janeth Mejia-Recillas was charged with murder and aggravated malicious wounding. Enrique Miguel Stock, 20, was charged with accessory after the fact, and assault and battery.

    Mejia-Recillas stabbed the teen and two men outside a house after "words of disrespect" were exchanged, police sources told News4. 

    Police responded to the area of Robinson Court and Harrison Street, in a residential neighborhood, at about 11:45 p.m. to investigate a stabbing. They found the wounded teen and men.

    All three stabbing victims were taken to a hospital, where the teen died.

    Mejia-Recillas and Stock fled the scene, police said. They were quickly identified as suspects, and a Fairfax County Police Department helicopter plus a Prince William County K-9 searched for them.

    The car they left in was found unoccupied about a mile from the crime scene, police said.

    Mejia-Recillas and Stock were found at their home in Woodbridge, about six miles away.

    They knew the victims, police said.

    The crime remains under investigation.
