    UPDATE: Police identify Leesburg murder suspect

    Updated: 3:53 p.m. Saturday

    Police on Saturday identified a man accused of stabbing a Leesburg woman to death.

    Leesburg Police has obtained warrants for Marco Corletto, 43, charging him with murder in the May 16 death of Roxana Rico, 31.

    Rico lived at 125-C, Clubhouse Drive SW in Leesburg.

    Two school-aged children resided at the home with Rico. Police said they're currently with representatives of the Loudoun County Department of Family Services awaiting the release to family members.

    Corletto, police said, at times lived in both Leesburg, Virginia and New Jersey.

    Corletto is under police watch while he is a patient at Fairfax Inova Hospital. He will be taken into custody on the murder warrant and brought before a Fairfax County Magistrate for a bond hearing once he's released.

    The matter remains under current investigation.

    Updated: 4:31 p.m.

    The 31-year-old woman involved in this afternoon's stabbing incident in Leesburg died shortly after arriving at Fairfax Inova Hospital. Her death marks the town's first homicide in 2014.

    The suspect, a 43-year-old male, remains in critical condition from apparent self-inflicted stab wounds.

    "It's still an investigative matter at this point," said Leesburg Capt. Clagett Moxley.

    The suspect, Moxley said, will remain in Leesburg Police custody while he recovers from his wounds.

    The name of the deceased will be released following next of kin notification.


    Original story: 3:31 p.m.

    Two people were flown to Inova Fairfax Hospital after a stabbing incident in Leesburg.

    According to a release from the Leesburg Police Department, officers responded to 125 Clubhouse Drive SW, an apartment complex, at around 2 p.m. after receiving a call from an injured person.

    At the scene, police found a Hispanic woman suffering from stab wounds to her upper torso. Police later found a Hispanic man with self-inflicted stab wounds to the arms after surveying the area.

    Emergency responders recommended both people be airlifted to Fairfax.

    The names of the two people involved have not yet been released.

    This is an ongoing story. More information will be reported as it becomes available.
