Alexander Bellini, 28 has been charged with murder in connection with the stabbing death of his father.
Police responded shortly before 1 a.m. to a home in the 2300 block of Watters Glen Court in Falls Church after receiving a report about a domestic dispute Thursday.
When they arrived at the home, police say officers found Christopher Bellini, 59, suffering from apparent stab wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Alexander was located inside the home and taken into custody. Alexander was prohibited from contacting his father due to a recent protective order. A knife believed to have been used by Alexander was recovered from the scene.
Alexander was taken into custody and charged with second-degree murder and violation of a protective order while armed with a deadly weapon.
An investigation is ongoing and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of death.
