     FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) - A college football player in Virginia found fatally stabbed is being mourned, and Fairfax County police have made an arrest in his killing.
 
     Authorities have arrested 22-year-old Johnny Bonilla, of Gainesville, in the death of Zavier O. Stringfellow. Police say Stringfellow was stabbed during a meeting with Bonilla.
 
     The 19-year-old Stringfellow, of Manassas, was found dead Friday in a minivan in the Vienna area.
 
     Stringfellow played football for Battlefield High School in Haymarket and more recently for Ferrum College in southwestern Virginia, where the roster lists him as a defensive end. His coach, Dave Harper, tells WTOP that Stringfellow was well-liked and had a good attitude.
 
     It wasn't clear if Bonilla had a lawyer. A man who answered the phone at a Bonilla family listing in Gainesville declined to comment.
