Carlos Tiul faces bond hearing Friday in Rockville stabbing death

The suspect in the stabbing death of a Rockville man is being held without bond after being charged with first-degree murder on Thursday.

Montgomery County Police say that 29-year-old Carlos Tiul will appear in Rockville District Court for a bond hearing on Friday.

Shortly after 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, officers found 27-year-old Tomas Mo-Choc suffering from a stab wound to the chest inside his home in the 14100 block of Travilah Road. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say the victim and another man were arguing inside the home. The dispute escalated, and the suspect assaulted the victim with an unknown weapon. The suspect then fled the scene, but was later arrested nearby. Police believe the two men were acquaintances, but their identities have not yet been confirmed.

The investigation into the motive for the stabbing is ongoing.
