WASHINGTON - Three men have been arrested following the fatal stabbing of a Maryland man last month.

The Washington Times reports 24-year-old Brandon Lytle and 22-year-old Davincio Coleman were arrested Wednesday in Maryland in connection with an attack that killed 26-year-old Henri' Dominic Pratt and injured his friend.

Demir Michael Stevenson, 23, was arrested Wednesday in the District. All three suspects are from Capitol Heights, Md.

A family member tells the newspaper that Pratt was stabbed 27 times and his friend eight times after getting off a party bus in the Seat Pleasant neighborhood June 26.

The Times reports Lytle faces charges of first- and second-degree murder, as well as two counts each of first- and second-degree assault, while Coleman faces charges of attempted first- and second-degree murder.

Stevenson is expected to be charged with first-degree murder after being transferred from D.C. custody to Prince George's County.
