Prince George’s County police on Tuesday arrested the acquaintance of an Upper Marlboro man found stabbed to death and wrapped in plastic behind a garbage bin in the Capitol Heights area.

Jamik M. Sumby, 28, was charged with first-degree murder in the death of Perry Earl Hunt, whose body was discovered Friday behind an apartment complex.

Evidence recovered from the area where Hunt’s body was found, at the Woodhaven Apartments in the 1400 block of Doewood Lane, led investigators to Mr. Sumby, said Cpl. Henry Tippett, county police spokesman. Police could not say Tuesday where they think Hunt was killed, but noted that Mr. Sumby lived less than a mile away from the apartment complex, in the 5100 block of North Englewood Drive in Fairmont Heights.

Hunt had been stabbed multiple times, Cpl. Tippett said.

Mr. Sumby is scheduled for a bond hearing Wednesday in Prince George’s County District Court, Cpl. Tippett said.
