Two boys have been arrested for the brutal stabbing death of a 47-year-old homeless man in Adelphi, Maryland.
Elias Portillo, 14, and another unnamed boy, 13, have been arrested and charged with first- and second-degree murder for the July 27 death of Francisco Sagastizado, Prince George's County Police announced Thursday.
The second boy is not being named because he is being charged as a juvenile. Portillo on the other hand, is being charged as an adult, so his name and mugshot have been released to the public. In Maryland, children can be charged as adults in serious crimes starting at the age of 14.
Police say the two boys killed the homeless man the morning of July 27, after he refused to give them $20.
