GLEN BURNIE, MARYLAND (KRON) — Authorities say they have found the body of an 18-year-old Maryland man accused of fatally stabbing his 10-year-old sister and wounding his 13-year-old brother.

Searchers found the body of Andres Rafael Quintana Garcia about 11:00 a.m. Friday in an area with trees and brush near the family’s Glen Burnie home, Anne Arundel County Police spokesman Lt. Ryan Frashure said by telephone and in a news release. He says the body has been taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner to determine the cause and manner of death.

Frashure has said the younger siblings were stabbed Monday when a family dispute escalated. He says the girl died and her brother was released from a hospital Thursday.

Police obtained an arrest warrant for Garcia, but could not find him for days.
