Six suspects are under arrest in Prince George's County in connection with the murder of a homeless man. A 17-year-old girl and five men between the ages of 18 to 23 are all charged with first degree murder.

Police say they've all given statements admitting to various degrees of involvement. They are all charged as adults and being held without bond.

Amos Milburn Jones, 54, was found dead yesterday when police responded to a report of a stabbing in the 4600 block of Huron Avenue in Suitland early this morning. Police Chief Mark Magaw calls the crime "deplorable," and says he is grateful to his staff for quickly closing the case.
