A Centreville man has been charged with murder in connection with the death of his roommate, Fairfax County police said Monday.

Police said a man who walked into a county law-enforcement facility on Sunday afternoon reported the woman’s death inside her home. When officers arrived at the home, located at 5923 Gunther Court, they found 22-year-old Ryah Leslie. Miss Leslie had suffered trauma to her upper body.

Police later arrested Ms. Leslie’s roommate, 22-year-old Benjamin Walker, and have charged him in connection with her death.

No other information was available Monday about the slaying. County police said it was the first homicide in Fairfax County in 2012.
