Early Friday morning, Junior Montero Sanchez, 23, of Hyattsville, Md., was shot to death in his truck a few miles from Fresta Valley Christian School, authorities said.
Fauquier County sheriff's deputies responding to the scene found a tow truck in the ditch on the 10000 block of Conde Road in Marshall.
Montero Sanchez had been killed, and Carroll Gregg Jr. has been charged in his death, according to Capt. Charles Bopp of the Fauquier County Sheriff's Office.
"It's looking like it was a vehicle repossession," Bopp said.
The captain said Gregg is "charged with murder; 18.2-32," referring to the state code as follows:
§ 18.2-32. First and second degree murder defined; punishment.
Murder, other than capital murder, by poison, lying in wait, imprisonment, starving, or by any willful, deliberate, and premeditated killing, or in the commission of, or attempt to commit, arson, rape, forcible sodomy, inanimate or animate object sexual penetration, robbery, burglary or abduction, except as provided in § 18.2-31, is murder of the first degree, punishable as a Class 2 felony.
All murder other than capital murder and murder in the first degree is murder of the second degree and is punishable by confinement in a state correctional facility for not less than five nor more than forty years.
