A man has been charged in the death of an off-duty Baltimore police detective who was killed this weekend.

Police say 25-year-old Sian James was charged late Sunday with first-degree murder in the death of Baltimore Detective Brian Stevenson.

Investigators say Stevenson was out with a friend Saturday night celebrating his birthday when he got into a dispute with James over a parking spot. Witnesses say James threw a stone or piece of concrete, hitting the detective in the head. James, who police say has a history of domestic violence, left the scene but was arrested a few hours later at a local nightclub.

Detective Brian Stevenson, who was an 18-year veteran with the Baltimore police department, would have turned 38 on Sunday.
